CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2001 (2) 94 WA


CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 2001 MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ 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. TASTED MAY 2016. DRINK: 2018-2045 94 WA 2 BTS. PER LOT $900 - $1,000




Price Realised: $1824
