Château Margaux 1983 Margaux, 1er Cru Classéu. 9bn, 3vts, slightly corroded capsulesThe 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.
