Description

This lot contains two bottles of 1982 Château Margaux Premier Grand Cru Classe.

Château Margaux is ranked as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. It is a 78 hectare estate planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Described by many as being the most feminine of the First Growths, wine writer Stephen Brook notes instead its 'perfume and purity, a crystalline note of the exquisite that is rare even among the great growths of the Médoc.'

'Consistently scoring between 98-100, the superb 1982 Margaux may be slightly bigger, bolder, and more masculine than vintages produced over the last 15-20 years. Its dark plum/purple color is followed by notes of melted tar intermixed with sweet cassis and floral underpinnings. Very full-bodied and dense for a Chateau Margaux, with a slight rusticity to the tannins, it boasts blockbuster power, richness, and impressive aromatics. It appears set for another 30-40 years of life.' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, June 2009

This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where they have been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
