CHATEAU MARGAUX 1983
Château Margaux 1983
Margaux, 1er Cru Classé
u. 3bn, 1vts, 4 labels slightly damp stained and peeling, 2 of which slightly damaged, rest lightly soiled and detached

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
