Absolutely compelling in two tastings of this vintage, the 2000 Margaux is composed of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. The extraordinary seductiveness, complex aromatics, and purity it exhibits lead me to believe it has reached its window of full maturity. Medium-bodied, with layers of concentration, stunning blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with spring flowers, a subtle dosage of new oak, and a distinctive personality that is elegant while at the same time powerful and substantial, this is a multi-dimensional wine that was extremely approachable and drinkable in both tastings I had of it. The color remains a healthy, even opaque bluish/purple, but there is no reason to hesitate to drink it. It should evolve for another 30-40 years, so there is no hurry either.

Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 2000 tasting in London. This has a lovely nose, black fruit, fruitcake, mulberry, graphite, cedar and a touch of black olive. Very fine definition and lift, just building with every swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, very well poised, such a fine silver thread of acidity with melting tannins, touches of cooked meat and dried herbs, very elegant towards the finish. This is sophisticated and regal. Drink 2015-2045. Tasted March 2010.
