Producer Notes

Chateau Margaux is one of the five First Growths ranked in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification.

Issue Issue 114

($120-$179) Enticing aromas of boysenberry, cedar, espresso and roasted oak. Sweet, lush and broad in the mouth, with sappy berry and espresso flavors. This boasts the pliant texture and near-perfect balance of the vintage's best examples. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Like so many 2001s, this is easy to taste today but may well close down in the coming year or so. "The 2001 is a smiley wine," says Pontallier, "while the 2002, though a bit stiff today, has more power and excellent aging potential. But neither ranks among our greatest vintages."

A little more obvious sweetness on the nose than the Haut-Brion. A hint of yeast extract. Not as graceful as Haut-Brion. Solid and not disappointing but earthbound. Not quite ready.

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.

Drink Dates 2006+

Subtle and very perfumed with floral, currants, minerals and berry aromas with a hint of toasted barrels. Medium- to full-bodied, with an outstandingly refined core of fruit and smoky, earthy, berry and almost meaty character. It's long and caressing. Could use a bit more fruit to be up with the other first-growths. 12,500 cases made.

Drinking beautifully now; classic Margaux. can go longer but no need for it -- just fine as it is! but decant it.

Tasted at EWS 2001 Bordeaux tasting in NYC. All wines were poured blind. Three flights, one of 5 wines, one of 4 and another of 4. Margaux finished 2nd of the 13 wines. This is a monumental wine. Everything you would expect from a classic Ch. Margaux vintage. Such balance, such finesse, sexy, sexy, sexy. Sure it's a little closed now, but the first sip told you this was something special. Run out and buy what you can find! I sure did!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
