Ruby-red. Inviting aromas of cherry, raspberry, chocolate, minerals and maple syrup. Plump, sweet and pliant, with the minerally quality carrying through in the mouth. Rather generous for this wine at this stage. Finishes with good length and ripe tannins.

The only vintage after 1996 that merits attention from serious wine lovers, the 2000 Marquis de Terme has a dense, murky ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of berry fruit, earth, licorice, and new oak. Medium-weight with good concentration and purity, it is much more developed than most 2000s. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2015.
