This year, the conditions were excellent for flowering. Until the end of the harvest, very nice sunny weather set in, which allowed the grapes to reach an excellent level of maturity.
Today, the 1983 is certainly one of the most classic Margaux of the last forty years. Château Margaux 1983 is a very great wine, powerful, balanced and fresh.
CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1983
DOMAINE DE LA ROMANEE CONTI 1983
CHÂTEAU DUCRU BEAUCAILLOU 1983
(10-1994) Wine of the vintage. Massive, with exuberant aromas of cassis, lead pencil and fruit which follow through on the palate. Full-bodied and incredibly velvety. Long, long finish.
(01-1998) The 1983 Margaux is a breathtaking wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes achieved perfect maturity in 1983, and the result is an astonishingly rich, concentrated, atypically powerful and tannic Margaux. The color is dark ruby, the aromas exude ripe cassis fruit, violets, and vanillin oakiness, and the flavors are extremely deep and long on the palate with a clean, incredibly long finish. This full-bodied, powerful wine remains stubbornly backward and at least 5-6 years away from maturity. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2030.
