2000 Marquis de Terme, Margaux

SKU #1043541 92 points Wine Spectator

 Lots of earthy, crushed berry and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with lots of good fruit and moist, velvety tannins. Long finish. Don't forget this. No one talks about this estate any more, and it makes very good wines in top vintages. Best after 2010.  (3/2003)

Jancis Robinson

 Definitely solid and chunky rather than high-flying but very worthy with such ripeness there are almost chocolate flavours, a dry finish and impressive length.  (10/2003)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The only vintage after 1996 that merits attention from serious wine lovers, the 2000 Marquis de Terme has a dense, murky ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of berry fruit, earth, licorice, and new oak. Medium-weight with good concentration and purity, it is much more developed than most 2000s. (RP)  (4/2003)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Ruby-red. Inviting aromas of cherry, raspberry, chocolate, minerals and maple syrup. Plump, sweet and pliant, with the minerally quality carrying through in the mouth. Rather generous for this wine at this stage. Finishes with good length and ripe tannins.  (6/2001)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Specific Appellation:

Margaux

- Margaux is the southern most of all of the appellations of the Haut Medoc. Located near St. Julien, it has more cru classe producers than the other four villages of the area. In addition to the legendary Chateau Margaux, there are five second-growths: Rauzan Gassies, Rauzan Seglas, Dufort-Vivens, Lascombes, and Brane Cantenac. While more people are probably familiar with the third growth Chateau Palmer, there are nine other wineries with the same ranking in addition to a trio of fourth growths and a pair of fifth growths. Because Margaux is comprised of five communes… Margaux, Cantenac, Soussans, Labardes and Arsac, the wines styles are diverse throughout the region with the more masculine tannic wines coming from the Cantenac side of the appellation. Because of a high percentage of Merlot planted in the region, many wines from Margaux are more round, feminine, and exotic that the other appellations of the Haut Medoc.
