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 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
