Chateau Marquis de Terme - Margaux 2000
Chateau Marquis de Terme - Margaux 2000 (88 TSW)
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
This Margaux is at it’s peak… so I have to drink the other bottles very soon
My tasting notes:
In the glass a deep red color.
On the medium+ nose aromas of barrique, plums, tobacco, vanilla and earthy hints.
On the palate dry, medium bodied with medium- tannins and medium acidity. Still very enjoyable with a recall of the nose and a soft round mouthfeel.
Margaux is an important appellation in the Haut-Médoc district of Bordeaux, southwestern France. Located 25 kilometers (15 miles) north of the city of Bordeaux, the appellation is famous for producing supple, perfumed wines, predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Margaux appellation contains 21 cru classé properties from the 1855 Bordeaux Classification (20 of which still exist), more than any other Left Bank appellation. It is also, geographically speaking, the largest in the Médoc, and is divided into five communes or parishes.
