1st Growth at 30 - A Full Case of Château Margaux 1983 (12 btls)
Château Margaux, 1983 (excellent condition overall, from OWC)
Château Margaux 1983 was heralded by Michael Broadbent MW as: "Unquestionably the wine of the vintage..."
"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." Robert Parker
