A wine of finesse. Dark-colored with ripe berry and licorice aromas. Full-bodied with silky tannins and a smoky berry and vanilla aftertaste. Second label of Chbteau Margaux. Best after 2001. JS Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

An unusual end of summer - distinctly drier and cooler than average - has given birth to a wine whose classicism and purity already stand out. It is indeed very rare for the Cabernet Sauvignon to reach such perfection, such balance. Even rarer still is to see so young a Chateau Margaux with such astonishing richness, intense fruit and harmony of form. A dream.
