2000 Marquis de Terme, Margaux
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.
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.
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)
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.
