My boss - who was trying to educate my palate, but who didn't drink wine herself - bought a bottle of this for me while on a business trip at the bar at the Four Seasons hotel in New York. At that point in my life I'd probably only ever tried one serious Bordeaux.. in college. Anyway it was transporting. I couldn't finish it however, as valiantly as I tried, and she offered the rest of the bottle to the waiter. I haven't tasted it since.

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... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

...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,... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

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.

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
