Description:

Chateau Margaux 1982
Margaux, 1er Cru Classe
u: very top shoulder or better,

"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." R. Parker, 98 pts. 06/09
4 bottles
Estimate $2,800-4,000
