Château Margaux Margaux Premier Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

$645

Performing well from bottle, Chateau Margaux's 2001, which is somewhat reminiscent of both the 1985 and 1999, is an elegant, seamlessly constructed effort with a deep ruby/purple color, and a beautiful nose of flowers, creme de cassis, blackberries, and cedar. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, this forward, opulent beauty can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. This is one of the most elegant wines of the vintage. Robert Parker

A beautiful wine from an unremarkable vintage for Bordeaux. Barnyard, wet leaves old rose petals on the nose and dark ripe fruits, black cherry, pencil shavings, light hints of coco and leather on the palate. I love this wine and the 2001 will be even better in a decade (2028).

This 2001 needs more time, at least 10-15 years. For its age, drinking nicely.
