    Winemaker's Notes:

    From its first tastings, the wine proved extraordinarily successful thanks to its elegance and delicious softness. Very rich, fruit, with vanilla, blackcurrant and liquorice flavors. An intense purple robe combined with roundness. The delicate quality of the appellation is balanced by an impressive level of concentraion and power.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From the partnership of Jean-Luc Thunevin and Muriel Andraud, the 2000 Marojallia was thought to be a flash-in-the-pan garage wine in 2000, but it is showing its stature and gravitas with its powerful evolution. The wine has a deep ruby/purple color and a beautiful nose of subtle charcoal, jus de viande, violets, blueberries, and black currants. Elegant yet full, pure, and substantial, this wine has wonderful suppleness, length, and a terrific finish. The tannins are round, and the wine ideally should be drunk over the next 10-15+ years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Opaque dark ruby. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, rose petal and mint. Impressive richness and sappy sweetness in the mouth; lush and dense but enlivened by a floral aspect. Quite concentrated and long, with the big, rich tannins coating the entire palate. This may not quite match the '99, because the cabernet sauvignon in '99 was nobler and more powerfully structured, but this will give pleasure earlier.

    International Wine Cellar

    A solid wine, with berry, cherry, mineral and floral character. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Gorgeous Margaux from a "garage" in the region.
