1983 PAVILLON BLANC du Château Margaux 1983

This year, the spring was very rainy and the summer was hot and dry, creating excellent conditions 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.
These exceptional conditions made it possible to make a great white vintage, with a quality comparable to that of the 1982 vintage. The 1983 vintage once again demonstrates the excellent potential for improvement in bottles of the Pavillon Blanc 1982 du Château Margaux. This second wine is still today admirable in terms of freshness and complexity.

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
