CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2000 (3) 98 WS 100 WA


CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2000 MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ 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. 98 WS 100 WA 3 BTS. PER LOT $3,100 - $3,700




Price Realised: $4920
