Chateau les Grands Marechaux 2000

88+ points

Premieres Cotes de Blaye, Bordeaux, France.

The 2002 of this wine is starting to settle down a bit into a nicely made, savoury, medium weight, quite classic minor claret.

This 2000 has more stuffing, more new oak too. This reflects the vintage differences.

From a very humble bordeaux appellation this is a wine of great value. A savoury food wine, ripe but without the powerful pristine fruit of some classed growths.
