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.

It's all there in the nose. Full-bodied with an ultrafine tannin structure and a finish that goes on for minutes. This may turn out even better than 1995 due to its layers and layers of fine tannins and fruit but I can't give more than 100 points. Best after 2015. -JS

Offers compelling mouthfilling concentration and perfume. A wine of great power and consistency with a pungent minerality lingering on the palate-staining finish. This somehow doesn't flag or grow narrower even after one swallows or spits. Makes the 2002 seem almost dry in comparison. Wine-of-the-vintage material.
