Winemaker's Notes:

The 2000 Pavillon Rouge has the complexity and density of a first wine, and it certainly has the aging potential. The fabulous potential of this vintage led Chateau Margaux to make a strict selection at the blending so that Chateau Margaux 2000 would have the most perfect expression possible.
My Notes:

About Chateau Margaux:

Château Margaux, a Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux, is one of the most famous wines in the world. Care has been lavished on the property by a line of owners with an abiding concern for the reputation of the estate.

For more than five hundred years, season after season, generations of vineyard-workers, grapeharvesters, cellar-workers, coopers and many other craftsmen have all played a part in making Château Margaux what it is today: a wine with an incomparable personality, reflected in the elegant Palladian building which adorns its label. In 1977, the estate was purchased by the late André Mentzelopoulos, and it is now run by his daughter, Corinne Mentzelopoulos.
