DescriptionChateau Margaux 1961
2htms, 1mtls, 1nl, 1hwasl, 3cc
Provenance: Property of a Florida lady. Wines stored in a wine refrigerator.
"The palate is nicely structured, straight-laced and correct, though there is plenty of freshness. It is quite a masculine wine with hints of dried blood emerging towards the foursquare finish." (89 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #227, Oct. 2016)
“Mature. smooth and finely textured, showing a beautiful bottle bouquet, ample fruity, meaty flavors and firm but integrated tannins. Elegant compared to some of the vintage's blockbusters, and a joy to drink.” (92 pts. Wine Spectator, Apr. 1996)
"An intense bouquet filled with the scents of ripe plums, flowers, toasted walnuts, and oak is divine. This expansive wine is silky, rich, very generously flavored, long, and full bodied on the palate. It is fully mature, but there is little chance of this wine falling apart for at least another decade. I have high hopes that the 1982, 1983, and 1986 will ultimately surpass this vintage of Margaux. The 1961 is a top-flight wine and unquestionably the last great Margaux until the Mentzelopoulos era began its remarkable string of great Margaux in 1978." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)
