Chateau Margaux 2001: A Wonderfully Balanced Margaux

Chateau Margaux , 1855 1st classified growth produced in the Margaux appellation, sits on a predominately gravel-based terroir. This wine comes from a meticuously assembled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

The 2001 Chateau Margaux vintage is an elegant one, and is actually quite simular to 1999, being both very fine and having soft, round tannins. This wine is pleasurable to drink in its youth since it is already balanced with perfectly ripe grapes that give fresh, pure fruit; and as it ages, it develops a more refined bouquet. This Château Margaux 2001 is a truly pleasurable and balanced wine with splendid aging potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2001 Chateau Margaux continues to evolve in impressive fashion. The nose feels sensual, veering towards red rather than black fruit, with disarming purity and perhaps showing more floral/violet character than the 1999. Both display tremendous precision and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, edgy and tensile with crisp acidity, so fresh and vital in the mouth. Tasted next to the 1996 Château Margaux, it is clear to see that the 2001 is several steps behind, yet the way it fans out with such confidence and brio on the finish assures that this has a prosperous future. Tasted May 2016.
