Chateau Margaux 2000
The extraordinary seductiveness, complex aromatics and purity this wine exhibits, leads one to believe it has now reached its full maturity. “ Should evolve for another 40-50yrs ” – 100pts Robert Parker – The wine advocate.
A beautifully gold straw yellow hue, fine bubbles, a bouquet of floral & fruity aromas, ripe & thirst – quenching on the palate, with a superb taste of brioche. Delicate toasty aroma. Creamy, beautifully balanced with a dry finish. A Champagne that has always been surrounded by Politicians & Royalty.
Although it is still young, this vintage of Cristal promises great things. There’s an impressive balance between ripe fruit and crisp acidity, rich and food friendly, but also a fine apéritif. Apricot and grapefruit flavors are round and rich, but with considerable minerality as well.
Gérard Perse became the new owner of Chateau Pavie in 1998. From this day on, he has transformed the wines on his estate in less than 20yrs to “ Premier Grand Cru Classé A”. He also has under his belt, Pavie Decesse, Bellvue Mondotte, Espirit de Pavie and Clos Lunells. A true genius of his trade!!
