Chateau Margaux First Growth Cru Classe En 1859 1982
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...

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
In spring '08 from privately held 750ml bottle, was an excellent example of its vintage and the work building it at Chateau Margaux. THIS WAS A PAVILLON ROUGE WHEN I WROTE THE REVIEW. WTF HAPPENED FOR YOU TO CONVERT IT TO A CHATEAU MARGAUX???

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
The first truly great Château Margaux under the Mentzelopoulos regime; the '82 is sensational, with captivating vanilla, violet and fruit aromas and flavors and palate-caressing, silky tannins... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Margaux, 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
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
