CHATEAU MARGAUX 1983
Château Margaux 1983
Margaux, 1er Cru Classé
u. 4bn, 3vts, 3ts, 1 label slightly soiled and slightly scuffed, 1 stained and scuffed, rest badly faded and discoloured, 3 also slightly damaged, 3 capsules slightly corroded, 1 corroded on top, 1 torn around collar

The first vintage of the late, great Paul Pontallier. In 2018, this has the exalted whiff of Margaux from the outset - I even guessed it! A scented concoction of high-toned cassis, Menier chocolate and cedarwood - pure fragrance. Very elegant and fine-textured on the palate - it has become increasingly 'filigree'. It does not have the depth of the 1982, but such lingering flavour and breedy charm. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
