Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
An extraordinary Margaux. Certainly the 1982 has a magnificent bouquet of creamy, toasty, smoky oak and ripe berries in addition to an exotic, almost oriental spice character to the perfume that gives it great individuality. In the mouth, the wine is fabulously concentrated, rich, and extremely soft, but at the same time very tannic, although the tannins are supple even silky. The wine has a finish that must last for several minutes. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025.

Wine Spectator
Deep ruby-red. Boysenberry, cassis, toasty oak and bitter chocolate on the slightly dusty nose. Penetrating and powerful; quite dry but almost exotically ripe, with sappy berry flavors complicated by graphite and licorice notes. Finishes very tannic and very long, with a strongly spicy character. 94(+?). Second bottle: Medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, violet and licorice. Pure silk in the mouth, with great sappy verve. Hugely concentrated and compellingly sweet. Utterly spherical wine, finishing with outstanding mounting fruit. Drink now to 2030.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Margaux
One of the great winegrowing regions of all time, this Bordeaux commune lies in the Médoc appellation, north of the town of Bordeaux. Margaux's claim to fame is its "white graves" soil, consisting of gravel brought by the river from the mountains. There are 18 Grands Crus Classés in Margaux, with Château Margaux producing the most highly regarded wines of the Médoc. Margaux wines are traditionally elegant with a full-flavored bouquet.

Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
