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. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2030. Robert Parker

From a high fill bottle with perfect provenance. Truly deserving of a spot in Decanter wine legends. Violets, menthol, cedar and a beautiful core of dried red fruits & herbs w/ an unbelievably long, seductive & silky finish. Top 2 if not best bottle of Bordeaux I have ever tasted. Truly an honour. Thank you Jim!

One of the top wines of the vintage from the word go...a densely concentrated mouthful of very ripe Cabernet & Merlot fruit yet not at all alcoholic or over-bearing. Rather soft and silky at the age 31 and very nicely balanced.

Amazing concentrating and finesse. Started earthy with aromas mushrooms, then developed into fresh red fruits, vibrant cassis, touch of mint and herbs. Stunning length and still showing so much promise!
