Tasting Notes Margaux 1982

98

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. Release price: ($360.00/case)

What a youthful ruby color. And it's fresh and young on the nose with currants, plums, mints, and flowers. A full-bodied red, with slightly tight and firm tannins, it opens to a long and satisfying finish. What freshness. Leave it five years, or decant three or four hours in advance before serving.

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. The Chateau Margaux 1982 is perhaps a little variable from bottle to bottle these days, occasionally cowed by the First Growths and at other times challenging the supremacy of the more consistent 1983. Still, this is a very fine Margaux. It has a fragrant, complex bouquet with wild strawberry, a touch of violets, hints of truffle and pot pourri. The palate has a sweet supple entry with candied orange peel infusing the pretty red fruit. It is very svelte in texture with fine, lace-like tannins – almost a vitamin-like purity here with a sublime mineral-rich finish. Tasted November 2012.
