The spectacular success of the Margaux appellation in this vintage remains in part an enigma, which illustrates how our knowledge of success factors is still limited… It seems that the stormy rains in August were less abundant in the region of Margaux than in the other regions of Bordeaux. Château Margaux 1983 is a very great wine, which some tasters find better than the 1982 vintage. Since their birth, we have followed this pair of vintages with curiosity and gluttony without passing a final judgment on their respective quality; over time, one tasted better than the other and then the other way around… Today, the 1983 is certainly one of the most classic Margaux of the last twenty years; the bouquet has developed well, it has become rich, complex, ripe. The impression on the palate remains very powerful with still firm tannins but without harshness. We can start drinking it, but its potential for growth and improvement is still very important. (Castle notes, October 2008)
Since the XNUMXth century, Margaux has shone without rival in the south of the Médoc thanks to a magnificent terroir formed by a very thick layer of siliceous gravel. Château Margaux was the property of King Edward III of England, in the middle of the XNUMXth century it belonged to Monsieur de Fumel, military commander of Bordeaux, who worked hard for its reputation. Over the generations, over the centuries, the skill of some, the innovations of others, gradually make Chateau Margaux wine a wine of excellence, in particular thanks to the talent and progress made by Berlon, manager at the very beginning. from the XNUMXth century. It was in fact he who had the idea of separating the white grapes from the red grapes for winemaking. He knew the land very well and knew how to exploit it. He is at the origin with his men, of the creation of a true art and a know-how.

Classified as a second growth in 1855, Chateau Lascombes, located in the Margaux appellation, owes its name to its first owner, Chevalier Antoine de Lascombes, born in 1625.
