Margaux 2000


We have 22 pristine bottles of the absolutely stunning 2000 Margaux. A wine so perfect, FOUR critics put it in writing. Yes – A quadruple 100 pointer from what is already a legendary vintage.

The wines of Chateau Margaux are wines of elegance, purity, harmony and finesse. Rich, full bodied and hauntingly floral, there’s a reason why America’s third President and first serious wine collector favored them so much. Before he became President, Thomas Jefferson was sent to Paris where he would eventually succeed Benjamin Franklin as Minister to France. During that time, Jefferson attempted to create his own hierarchy of wines. He put Château Margaux in first place. In 1784, Jefferson placed an order for Margaux on which he wrote, “There couldn’t be a better Bordeaux bottle.”

This goes without saying, but Chateau Margaux is one of the most prestigious wineries in all of Bordeaux and the wines they produce are absolutely mesmerizing. Works of art that can impress the most demanding of palates.  The market for First Growth Bordeaux continues to grow throughout the world, and the prices grow with it.

However, lucky for us, we get to offer these to you at the lowest price in the country! Stock them away now and be handsomely rewarded over the coming years.


 2000 Margaux 

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.

Violet and iris aromatics curling out of the glass, starting to reach their full expression at 20 years old. Beautifully finessed and elegant, with hints of black truffle, cloves and rich blackberry fruits, this is a vintage that showcases the best of Margaux. It took its time to reach this point but it has been worth the wait, and the wine just gets better and better over a few hours in the glass. Highlights the success of the partnership between owner Corinne Mentzelopoulos and director Paul Pontantallier, with this château delivering some of the most memorable wines of the turn of the century years in Bordeaux.

Tasted from magnum, the 2000 Château Margaux is a prodigious, flawless wine that shows the elegance and seductive hallmark of the estate paired with incredible density, depth, and richness. Its still-ruby/purple color is followed by sensational notes of crème de cassis, spring flowers, lead pencil, and sandalwood that develop beautifully with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, opulent, and seamless, with a multi-dimensional, layered texture, it has a massive mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a finish that won’t quit. It’s drinking brilliantly today, and there’s certainly no need to delay gratification, but it’s going to continue evolving for another 3-4 decades. Bordeaux (or red wine, for that matter) doesn’t get any better.

The 2000 Margaux kicked off a string of great wines. The aromas are spellbinding, with notes of raspberry and strawberry. The palate is incredibly silky yet structured. Impeccable balance.
