2001 Chateau Margaux, 1st Growth Margaux (1 x Magnum)

France Bordeaux Margaux

Medium ruby. Very restrained, perfumed aromas of black fruits, minerals, licorice and violet. Quite closed, even stern, in the mouth, but already offers lovely purity and precision of dark fruit flavor. A wine of austere charm, finishing very subtle and long, with refined tannins. Hard to assess at this early stage, but extremely elegant. The 2001 has a similar concentration of tannins to the 96, notes Pontallier, but this wine is even more tightly wound.
