The bouquet has incomparable finesse, with amazing hints of fresh fruit.
Despite the huge volume, this wine was of a power and concentration that have rarely been matched. This vintage aroused immediate excitement and eclipsed the fantastic 1899. Discovering a comparable quality in the 2000 vintage was a particularly emotional moment for us... Today, Château Margaux 1900 still has an extraordinary freshness. It is one of the greatest wines we have ever tasted.
On the palate, there is a fabulous impression of richness and smoothness; the finish is long, delicious and refreshing. Simply wonderful.
A wonderful year, which benefited from a very hot summer as well as very fine weather during the harvest.
The legendary 1900 ! The century began with an extraordinary harvest both in terms of quantity and quality. 1900 is firstly a record volume of wine, which was equalled only in 1982 ! There had been several bumper years previously, in 1896 and 1893. 1900 though, was legendary for its quality!
Picking began 24th September.
