Firm and rich. Dark ruby. Mint, mineral and currant aromas. Full-bodied, with solid and fine tannins. Better with a bit more age? Perhaps not as opulent as expected.--Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
Consistently scoring between 98-100, the superb 1982 Margaux may be slightly bigger, bolder, and more masculine than vintages produced over the last 15-20 years. Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life.
A warm, rich and cuddly wine. Wonderful. Dark ruby-garnet. Very fresh cherry, berry and mineral aromas. Full-bodied and rich, with velvety tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. Drink now or hold. Second label of Château Margaux.--1982 Bordeaux hori... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Margaux, Pavillon Rouge du Chateau 750ml
...Boysenberry, cassis, toasty oak and bitter chocolate on the slightly dusty nose. Penetrating and powerful; quite dry but almost exotically ripe, with sappy berry flavors complicated by graphite and licorice notes. Finishes very tannic and very lon... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
This vintage heralded a new era of perhaps unprecendented prosperity for Bordeaux, thanks to a run of extraordinary vintages and the opening up of international makerts. The 1982 vintage can be considered as the first representative of a new generation of wines which are enjoyable to drink in their youth but which lose none of their ability to age a long time. Château Margaux 1982 is a very powerful, fleshy and complex wine. The bouquet is already outstandingly rich and dense. The impression on the palate is at once of great power, roundness and suppleness. Such a balance is rare. Undoubtedly, a very long-ageing wine, but which already possesses a lot of charm. We can start drinking it now, but there is really no hurry...
