Château Margaux 1982

Margaux, 1er Cru Classé

u. 3bn, 5vts, 1ts, 1t/hs, 1hs, excellent appearance, 2 capsules slightly wrinkled around collar, 1 corroded with cork slightly depressed, original lid missind and replaced with cardboard; Excellent aspect, 2 capsules légèrement froissées autour du col, 1 corrodée avec le bouchon légèrement enfoncé, couvercle d'origine manquant et remplacé par du carton

In 2018, this is tremendous, with the gap between it and the 1983 ever-widening. Multi-layered Cabernet complexity and depth at every turn, with all the richness of sumptuous black fruit on great terroir. The texture combines refinement with all-enveloping, wrap-around warmth, still full of life and vibrancy. First Growth 1982s reign supreme, as ever. In 2020 and from magnum, this has further expanded and gained in richness and spiciness to an amazing extent - a long-distance runner of immense class and presence. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
