Retail purchase held several years. Decanted 2 hours. Absolutely gorgeous wine, and a can't miss Margaux fragrance. Medium bodied, elegant, but long and complex. Red fruit, well balanced. Peak of youth is now. Can go another 10+ years but why wait? This is a wonderful 2000 vintage and even at $65-75 a special value today. I rate the 2005 just ahead.

Opened this early in the morning and left it to breathe until mid-afternoon. Inky in color. Medium legs. Relatively reserved nose highlighted by leather and smoke. On the palate, smooth, mellow notes of coffee and spice, rich tannins but totally integrated. Nothing to distract from the combination of fruit, oak, and tannin - well balanced, elegant.
