This has aged into quite a beauty. Floral, lots of potting soil, some cassis, fresh rain, meadow, a dark profile yet aged yet not. Terrific nose. Lots of tar and tobacco as well. Palate is compact and fresh with nice density and opulence and length. Persistent. Good ripe tannins and that trademark 2000 whiplash acidity. Love it.

Slightly pruney but a good example of 'normal' Margaux in this vintage.

Love me some 2000 Bordeaux. Flowers, wet dirt, berries, really vivid aromas. Great 2000 acids, inner mouth aromas and very pure. Elegant, good concentration. I think this was $22 on futures. Only futures I ever bought were 2000. Still have a few cases to dig into.

This took some time to open up but drank beautifully once it did.

Still incredible structure and length. A baby. A nicely layered Bordeaux. Dark horse.

Superb 2000 drunk in magnum to celebrate the New Year. Decanted 2hrs before but still opened up in the glass. Still supple and some interesting tobacco notes emerging

The first time I had this wine was a decade ago. It was fantastic so I bought a case or so. The wine continued to improve peaking in around 2007-2008. Now I think its past its prime. It's still decent with an old world nose, toasted walnut, black currant. But the fruit on the palate is much diminished compared to a few years ago.

Earthy nose, higher alcohol, red fruit. 2007 curious grape tasting.
