CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2000 (OWC)
MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ
TASTED BLIND, THE 2000 CHATEAU MARGAUX WAS A REMINDER OF THE PEAKS THAT THE MILLENNIAL VINTAGE COULD REACH. NOTICEABLY DEEP IN COLOR, THE BOUQUET RIVETS YOU TO THE SEAT WITH COPIOUS RED BERRY FRUIT, CLOVE AND TRUFFLE, HINTS OF CEDAR EMERGING WITH TIME. AS THE AROMATICS OPEN AND AERATE, THE FRUIT PROFILE SEEMS TO DARKEN AND MANIFESTS BLACKCURRANTS AND BILBERRIES. THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED WITH FILIGREE TANNIN. THERE IS IMMENSE DEPTH AND SYMMETRY CONVEYED BY THIS FIRST GROWTH, QUITE MASCULINE FOR THE ESTATE WITH A GENTLE BUT INSISTENT GRIP. IT IS A BRILLIANT WINE THAT FLIRTS WITH PERFECTION. AFFORD IT ANOTHER 3-4 YEARS IF YOU CAN, BECAUSE IT WILL LAST DECADES. TASTED NOVEMBER 2016. FEBRUARY 2017 WA 99
6 BTS. PER LOT $6,000 - $6,500

Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
