2000 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux

SKU #1014453 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This estate, which has continued to impress me in recent years, hit a home run in 2000. Showing slightly better than I rated it previously, this wine is deep bluish/purple with some lightening at the edge, and its floral nose displays notes of melted licorice, crushed rock, blueberries and black raspberries. A wine of extraordinary balance, equilibrium, and purity, with supple tannins, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated effort is already compelling and has hit its window of full maturity, where it should stay for another 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is starting to hit its stride, with velvety-edged structure melded already with a core of mulled fig, plum and blackberry fruit flavors, all accented by warm tobacco and fresh lilac notes. A subtle tug of earth at the very end adds length while this stays very refined overall. (JM, Web-2016) Inner quote mark

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep ruby-red. Explosive aromas of blackcurrant, mocha, coffee, molasses and spices. Sweet but firm, with sound acidity contributing excellent vinosity and leavening the wine's richness. Expressive flavors of raw currant, game and truffle. Thick but not overly fat, finishing with firm tannic spine and excellent persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2003)

From our great staff 2000 Bordeaux dinner. A very large scale Margaux composed of about 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Verdot. This wine had generous aromatics, with everything from dark cassis to green peppers on the nose. In the mouth it was the sweetest of the Medoc wines, and among the sweetest of the whole tasting, with lots of rich fruit, full body and big texture. This also has a big backbone of tannin, and drinks well right now with richer dishes like the short ribs that we had with it.
Drink from 2015 to 2025
