    December 16, 2014 - It might be bottle variation but this bottle seemed old and tired. Earthy porcini mushroom bouquet with some dried fruit. Palate is thin with some dried fruit and lively acidity. There is still an acceptable level of tannins. Lackluster in comparison to other 2000 vintage I've had.

    November 1, 2014 - We'll structured and integrated. Upon opening, fragrance of dark cherry and violets jumped from the bottle...was surprised by the vibrancy of this wine. The palate was dark cherry with cooking spice...clove and a hint of rosemary. Soft tannins and long finish of fruit and spice. Medium body. Drinking quite well now.

    October 29, 2014 - Very nice, elegant wine from Margaux. Seems quite young with evident tannins. Cassis and lots of earth and leather. Some funk undertones on opening that blew off in 30 minutes. A little light on the attack, but overall is smooth. Long finish. Can drink or hold this one, but this is certainly going to continue to drink well for a number of years. I'll hold off for awhile with my remaining bottles.

    October 27, 2014 - Cassis, redcurrant and cranberry on nose and palate, with trademark PL spices. Quite evolved, the colour starting to brick at the edges. It's a pleasant wine, drinking well in an easy-going sort of way, but with neither the power I expected from PL in a top vintage nor the elegance of a true Margaux. Not the best Margaux in 00 nor one of the better PL vintages, it lacks grip or bite and I can't see it improving.

    September 7, 2014 - Very elegant and charming. Delicate floral nose with some cassis and notes of leather. Great structure and potential. Drinks very well now, but will evolve for up to a decade more. Great wine.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Prieure-Lichine) A great showing for this wine and I have not really loved this stuff in the past. Violets, minerals, chocolate, exotic spices . . . maybe clove? Deep nose . . not high-toned but subtly penetrating. Peppery palate with a swath of dense dark berried fruit. Long and grippy but the fruit is there till the end. Fantastic.
