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. *** Similar to the 1999, this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc is the result of a draconian selection (only 35% of the crop made it into the grand vin). Sweet cassis, licorice, and subtle wood notes waft easily from this medium-bodied, elegant, charming, seductive Chateau Margaux. It is beautifully balanced and will be delicious young. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.
