1983 CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1983

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.

Wine Spectator

(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.

(04-2022) Drinking at peak, once again, I am having a hard time picking a favorite between the 82 and the 83. But today, both are great. So here, you find a violet-infused, cherry, plum, tobacco leaf and cigar wrapper core. Full-bodied, rich, supple, fresh and elegant, the earthy, red-toned finish is long, refined and supple.

(08-2018) Bright ruby, no trace of orange tones. Extremely fragrant and deep nose, what a drug, it's not wine, it's perfume. In addition to dark and red cherries, a hint of cassis, violets, a touch of old leather saddle, that's exactly how Bordeaux should smell. On the palate with a soft attack, extremely delicate with a medium body, the wine still seems fresh and very crisp, delicately spicy, the delicate red fruit is supported by a perfectly integrated acidity and largely melted, very finely woven tannins. The precision and elegance is impressive, everything is in its place, the wine vibrates, shows drinking flow and an incredible tension. Excellent and in my eyes now at its peak. Open your wallet, close your eyes and enjoyment is guaranteed.

(12-2023) One of the wines I opened to celebrate the end of harvest in Burgundy this year was a bottle of the 1983 Château Margaux, and I was blessed with a perfect cork, something that isn't a given with this vintage. Offering up beautiful aromas of sweet cassis, cigar box, petroleum jelly and violets, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, melted tannins and a long, aromatic finish. Fully mature today, now is a great time to open bottles.

Falstaff

(01-2010) Strong ruby garnet, delicately under-ochered, wide water rim. Delicately smoky and spicy dark berry confit, fine dried plum aroma, balsamic spice. Full-bodied, sweet berry fruit, striking tannins that seem slightly rough, red berry nuances, currant, lemony, delicate caramel finish, elegant accompaniment to food with further aging potential. Shows everything that the Palmer completely missed this time, a Bordeaux icon and definitely a, if not the wine of the 1983 vintage.

Jean-Marc Quarin

(02-2005) red color. Evolved. On the nose, touches of blackcurrant. Intense. Smoke. Creamy. Very fruity and fresh. Soft, smooth, dense and delicious, this wine tasted alongside the already very good Certan de May de Certan presents a smooth, subtle and deep touch. The wine finishes creamy and tasty on the finish. Totally ready and melting. A delight.

(04-2016) There are the hallmark violets and dried red rose petals but the palate is bit dull rather than lifted and fresh. A muted version of 83 Margaux from a case that is ex-chateau.

(12-2022) An even deeper mature garnet than the Ch Léoville Las Cases 1983 served alongside and with more flesh and nuance. Really rather glorious, even voluptuous, though clearly subtle rather than a blockbuster.

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
