Strong carmine garnet, subtle ocher reflections, broad brightening of the edges. Multi-faceted bouquet, nuances of fresh dark berries, black cherries, a hint of nougat. Juicy, ripe cherries, fine extract sweetness, well integrated tannins, chocolatey touch, then a bit slimmer in the finish, blackberry and fresh, present tannins, salty minerality in the finish, chocolatey aftertaste.

The 1982 Chateau Margaux is a wine that I have tasted many times, constantly contrasted against the 1983 to see which is better. Frankly I found that it depends on the bottle, although maybe the 1983 edges it. But it is important to assess the 1982 on its own individual merits because it is a superb First Growth. This was a great bottle: fragrant and beautifully defined on the nose that on this occasion offered a more conspicuous graphite scent, which lent it a Pauillac-like personality. Allowing the wine to open and aerate, the traits one associates with the property emerge—wilted violets and rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and mineral-laden, that suggestion of candied orange peel on the entry segueing into layers of pure red and black fruit. There is always something effortless about this Chateau Margaux and the pixelation on the finish is up there with the very best. Is it the best 1982 First Growth? No, it's not quite up there with 1982 Latour or Mouton-Rothschild, however, it is a sublime evocation of the vineyard and it will continue to give pleasure for a couple of decades yet.

All of the great wine tasters have commented on this wine over time. Where it it today? The robe is very somber. The wine is thick and fat but it doesn't deliver itself easily. The nose is closed at the opening of the bottle, it needs time to aerate. You must wait a bit. Don't be impatient. The mouth is very rich, dense, fleshy, with black fruit and spicy aromas. Very good length. This wine leave you a bit knocked out. After 30 years in the bottle, it is today excellent with still a huge potenital to last many years. 95100 (03-2015) Tasted in 2012, we were curious to measure the evolution of this wine. This bottle was perfect. Slightly less closed than the last one. What richness! what strength ! What length ! This wine is really exceptional. One can drink it or wait, if you manage to wait.

Château Margaux

Château Margaux is one of the largest wine estates in Bordeaux. In AOC, Margaux appears in the first classified growths of the official classification of Médoc wines of 1855.

If it is a privilege to bear the name of its Margaux appellation, there is no doubt that Château Margaux does it great honor.

For several centuries, this Premier Cru Classé has expressed to the highest degree the exceptional qualities of terroirs patiently brought together by several generations of owners. Maintained and harvested exclusively by hand with extreme care, the 78 hectares of vines (75% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet-Franc and Petit-Verdot) draw their richness very deeply from the soil. clayey-gravelly, particularly dense and thick.

Fermentation in oak vats, after which the wine is strictly selected, is followed by 18 to 24 months of aging in new oak barrels. A masterpiece among the Bordeaux wines, the best according to some, Château Margaux reveals finesse and opulence, depth and complexity on tasting, and develops a bouquet of rare elegance of rose, violet, black fruits, under -taut by tight tannins that require patient aging before blossoming. The château also produces a second wine, Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux, and a dry white wine, Pavillon Blanc du Château Margaux (100% Sauvignon Blanc).

Best vintages of Château Margaux are : 1900, 1928, 1953, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1990
