1983 Chateau Margaux Bordeaux - 99 pts!!
Since the 17th Century, the first wine of Château Margaux has been recognized as being one of the greatest wines in the entire world.  

It owes its unique qualities to the genius of its terroir as well as to the passionate work of a succession of generations. It’s a remarkable wine that comes from a combination of characteristics that are only rarely found: finesse, elegance, complexity, density, intensity, length and freshness. Although its tannic concentration may be exceptional, it’s rare to detect astringency.

The great vintages are distinguished by their formidable ability to move us. The lesser vintages give pleasure to wise enthusiasts. They offer the advantage of evolving very rapidly and, reveal, after a few years, instead of power, this subtlety that is the prerogative of great terroirs.

Château Margaux has an extraordinary ability to evolve. Over the years, it has developed a finesse, an aromatic complexity and a remarkable presence on the palate.

Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator RP 99 - Recently re-rated by Parker!!! 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. RP 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.--The Bordeaux 50. WS
