Château Palmer Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

One of the superb wines of the vintage, the 1983 Palmer continues to display a saturated purple/garnet color, and an intense perfume of jammy black fruits, smoked meats, flowers, cedar, and Asian spices. Super-concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied, this huge, unctuously textured wine is approaching its plateau of maturity. Because of the high Merlot content it can easily be drunk now, yet promises to last for another 20-25 years. I remain convinced that the 1983 will be the most powerful Palmer since the compelling 1961. Robert Parker

A real treat. Unbelievably youthful for a wine as aged as it's owner but not as decrepit!

Really in a nice place. Lucky enough to have this vintage 2x in 3 months. Still youthful and doesn't want to give up its aromas. Drink now or hold

In a beautiful place. Youthful vibrant nose that evolves with every pour. Palate is a bit thin. The thought is this vintage peaked a couple years back. Last glass was cedar, lavender, tobacco and graphite

A great tasting today - the 1983 is rich, savoury and seamless. Aging distills these wines into their essential core.
