"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. Best after 2010." (WS)

"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." (WA)

"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." (VM)

"Aromatically, the wine serves up a blast of licorice, black cherry, smoke, flowers, espresso and chocolate covered cherries. On the palate, the wine tastes and feels oaky, which at close to 17, worries me. There is a lushness to texture, silky tannins, and plenty of sweet, ripe, cherries. But but the level of oak is on the border. 91 points - Tasted Sep 28, 2016" (JL)
