About this Item

Margaux, 1981
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
Named after Charles Palmer who purchased the property in the early 1800s. Classically styled and yet powerfully structured, this is a glorious vintage by one of Bordeaux's greatest Château.

Critics Ratings

‘Stunning violet, cassis nose soars from the glass like a 1982! Well-balanced palate, acidic but with ample sweet black fruits with green pepper finish. Harmonious. The palate does not quite match the nose, with some stalky notes in the background, but this is a wonderful 1981.’ - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 90-92/100 (Jan 2002)
