Château Margaux

A very powerful, full-bodied, complex and extraordinary wine. The bouquet is already exceptionally rich and intense. The impression on the palate is of much concentration, fullness and suppleness. Such a balance is rare. Long lasting but already charming

Wine Spectator

Firm and rich. Dark ruby. Mint, mineral and currant aromas. Full-bodied, with solid and fine tannins. Better with a bit more age? Perhaps not as opulent as expected.--Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

Score: 94. —James Suckling, June 30, 2001.

Wine Advocate

From my cellar, the 1982 Margaux exhibits a dark, murky ruby/purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge. Earthy, truffle, black fruit, underbrush, cedar, and spice aromas are followed by a ripe, full-bodied, chunky wine. This fleshy, powerful effort is somewhat disjointed and rustic at present. Interestingly, I have had bottles that merited nearly perfect scores, and others that were typical of this tasting. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2035.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, June 2000.
