The 1983 Margaux is a breathtaking wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes achieved perfect maturity in 1983, and the result is an astonishingly rich, concentrated, atypically powerful and tannic Margaux. The color is dark ruby, the aromas exude ripe cassis fruit, violets, and vanillin oakiness, and the flavors are extremely deep and long on the palate with a clean, incredibly long finish. This full-bodied, powerful wine remains stubbornly backward and at least 5-6 years away from maturity.

Deep ruby-red. Exotic aromas of cassis meat and smoke plus a whiff of funky wood. Then remarkably sweet lush and suave with a flavor of raw berries. Pure Margaux silkiness allied to firm structure. Finishes very long with rich sweet tannins. Remarkable wine particularly considering that the bottle was not perfect. Pristine bottles of this wine are just now embarking on their period of peak drinkability which should last another 20 years or more. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Wine of the vintage. Massive, with exuberant aromas of cassis, lead pencil and fruit which follow through on the palate. Full-bodied and incredibly velvety. Long, long finish. Try after 1998 Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
