Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, licorice and a whiff of tobacco on the cool nose. Sweet and moderately dense, with currant and oak flavors. Not in the same class as the 2000 in terms of stuffing and grip. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins and good length.

The wine never opened up to show any real fruit, maybe it would have done given a day or so, but I think not.

Site Blog: Unidentified Appellation The second hand vin of Chateau Margaux in 2001 is currently showing very tight, structured and unevolved in relation to the Malescot. There is a solid core of dark raspberry, plum and savory spice notes buried underneath the wine?s current fa?ade that will likely need 2-3 more years of cellaring to emerge, but impressively stretch out on the finish

About This Producer


Chateau Margaux is one of the five First Growths ranked in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The neo-Palladian style chateau was built in the 18th century by architect Louis Combes for the Marquis de la Colonilla. Chateau Margaux has been well regarded in history and stands among Thomas Jefferson's favorite chateaux. Since 1977, the estate has been directed by the Mentzelopoulos family with winemaking team director Paul Pontallier, cellar master Jean Grangerou and consulting oenologist Emile Peynaud. The vineyards are primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), with the balance composed of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. In addition to the chateau's grand vin, the estate produces a second label called Pavillon Rouge de Chateau Margaux and Pavillon Blanc de Chateau Margaux, a white made from Sauvignon Blanc. Chateau Margaux's finest vintages include 1900, 1928, 1953, 1961, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003, and 2005.

Margaux is often considered the most "feminine" of the First Growths. It is sensuous with fine tannins that give it a sense of clarity. The wine has dark berry aromas such as boysenberry or blackberries. The bouquet is characterized by ripe black currants, spicy vanilla and violets. A strong minerality is often found in the lengthy finish.
