Château du Tertre Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$79.99

...An open-knit, more leathery nose than its peers, touches of mulberry, dried orange peel, graphite and even a tang of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, masculine and dense, real backbone again here, a wine in for the long-haul. Blackberry, allspice, hoi sin and a touch of white pepper towards the long...finish... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

This was in the modern style when young. What a difference age makes. Beautiful nose of cigar tobacco, hay, mineral, wet stones, leather and spices. Library like aromas. Very secondary. Some fruit emerges after air. Palate shows rich, ripe fruit buffered by that excellent 2000 acidity. Great structure and tannins still but in a nice place. I'm sure it will get more interesting as the night progresses.

2000 is just beautiful right now! The color is mesmerizing - sunburnt orange rim, brick red, with a dark crimson core. When you open this one, you get immediate cellar funk and compost flying out of the bottle, but after about 40 minutes, the funk flies, and what you're left with a true lightning bolt..(coup de foudre!) Leather couches in a frequented library, espresso, stewed red apple skins, and bell pepper, tobacco, and dried carnations. Tannins are still firmly present, and still sexy in feel (yes, velvet love in liquid form), black plums, graphite, bell pepper, clove spice, and a soft and lush finish. I think this wine could see another 15 years at least with the youth it began to show around 2.5 hrs after being opened. If you can find any 2000 around, grab 3.. lay 2 down, drink one now. Happy Valentine's Day!

Great classic aged Bordeaux nose. Graphite, minerals, cassis, red berries and some nice floral aromas after air. Great palate. Nice depth. Very rich. Elegant and fresh. Years to go.

Cranberry, raisin and pork meat on the nose. Little hints of brett creep in. Bright cherry pops on palate with light tannins on finish. Probably hitting peak.

Still youthful after 16years falling right in the sweet spot for this vintage. Sweet tannins and opulence provide a glorious finish.
