    Description

    Chateau Margaux 1981
    Margaux
    2hs, 1htms, 3hbsl, 1wisl
    Bottle (4)


    "In weight and texture, the 1981 Margaux is closest in style to the 1979. It is an outstanding wine, even in the company of the monumental wines of 1982, 1983, and 1986, although it does not have the power and weight of these vintages. It is still very dark ruby/purple-colored. The aromatics suggest ripe cassis fruit, spicy vanillin oakiness, and violets. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, concentrated, tannic, and extremely long. It is just beginning to open and evolve." (91 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed., Jan. 1998)


    Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
