RP100 "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." RP June 2010

"Pontallier thinks this may be the greatest Margaux yet made under the Mentzelopoulos administration, "a new reference." A fabulous wine to be sure, I will defer judgment given the enviable record of superlative wines made over the last two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2050." RP Apr 2001
