2001 Margaux, Margaux

SKU #1011570 97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 'For me, this vintage is what makes Margaux special,' says Margaux winemaker Paul Pontallier. He is right: With its denseness, spice, flavors of black currants layered with dryness and fresh acidity, this is a huge and impressive wine that never forgets that it is Margaux. It is still young, and the dry tannic aftertaste, which lasts for many minutes, shows this. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2005)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Suave from the start, with beguiling tea, singed sandalwood and lilac notes backed by alluring, gently steeped red and black currant fruit. The long finish has an alder edge that stays in lockstep with the fruit, ending with a minerally echo. Drink now through 2030. (JM, Web-2018) Inner quote mark

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001 Chateau Margaux continues to evolve in impressive fashion. The nose feels sensual, veering towards red rather than black fruit, with disarming purity and perhaps showing more floral/violet character than the 1999. Both display tremendous precision and delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, edgy and tensile with crisp acidity, so fresh and vital in the mouth. Tasted next to the 1996 Château Margaux, it is clear to see that the 2001 is several steps behind, yet the way it fans out with such confidence and brio on the finish assures that this has a prosperous future.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid ruby. Great depth and richness and complexity – and yet this manages to be racy and delicate too. Real lift and freshness - thoroughbred stuff. The hedonistic fruit cunningly disguises what is still a heavy charge of tannin. Great persistence. A haunting wine. 18.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

K&L Notes

Reserved nose with some sage nuances. Sweet and dense on the palate. Not as big as Latour or Lafite, but very elegant. Pure with finesse and elegance. Great Petit Verdot this year that was picked before the Cabernet. Lovely wine in the classic Margaux style.
