Chateau Margaux 2001: A Wonderfully Balanced Margaux
Chateau Margaux , 1855 1st classified growth produced in the Margaux appellation, sits on a predominately gravel-based terroir. This wine comes from a meticuously assembled blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The 2001 Chateau Margaux vintage is an elegant one, and is actually quite simular to 1999, being both very fine and having soft, round tannins. This wine is pleasurable to drink in its youth since it is already balanced with perfectly ripe grapes that give fresh, pure fruit; and as it ages, it develops a more refined bouquet. This Château Margaux 2001 is a truly pleasurable and balanced wine with splendid aging potential.
