About this Item

Margaux, 2000
1 (1 x 1) 1500ml
Named after Charles Palmer who purchased the property in the early 1800s. Classically styled and yet powerfully structured, this is a glorious vintage by one of Bordeaux's greatest Château.

Critics Ratings

'Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 2000 Château Palmer was closed for a number of years, but it appears to be finally opening. Deep in colour, there remains a slight broodiness on the nose, although it loses its inhibitions and develops potent blackberry, strawberry and mint aromas, perhaps just a smudge of camphor. It is unashamedly rich on the entry: intense and vibrant with layers of black cherry and cassis fruit pierced by a fine line of acidity. This millennial tightens everything up towards the, finish whereupon it reverts to something much more classic in style, long and tensile. It does not quite occupy the same class as the 2005 or the imperial 2010, but it certainly has long-term potential. My advice? Give it another 4-5 years in the cellar. - 'Neal Martin 94 points eRobertParker.com May 2015
