One 750ml Bottle of the Excellent and Very Rare 1981 Vintage of Château Margaux. Château Margaux is the Famous First Growth Estate with the Most Seductive and Fabulously Perfumed Bouquet in all of its Great Vintages, which are Frequent. This Rare 1981 Vintage was an Excellent one- The 1981 Vintage was an Excellent one for all of Bordeaux , but unfortunately it was Overshadowed by the Outstanding 1982 and 1983  Vintages which succeeded it. This 1981 Château Margaux has been rated a Very High 95 Points by The Wine Spectator Magazine.  Here is their Review , '  95  out of   100   .........................................   The other Wine of the Vintage. Seriously Powerful with Fabulous Color and Mint, cassis and Berry Aromas and Flavors. Has a Full Body and is Tannic ; still needs time to come around. Better after 2007.-- The Bordeaux 50. –  '   Additional Information : Château Margaux, a 1er Cru Classé property, has been owned by the Mentzelopoulos family since 1978 - since then it has consistently produced the Finest Wines in the Médoc. The large 90 hectare property produces over 30,000 cases per year and is located in the centre of the Margaux Appellation. The vineyards (Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 20%, Cabernet Franc 2%, Petit Verdot 3%) lie on a sandy-stone topsoil, beneath which is to be found gravel and then clay. The Wine is Fermented in a mixture of stainless steel vats and oak casks and is matured for 18 months in 100% new Oak Barriques. These are Sublime and Immaculately Crafted Clarets which display Extraordinary Fragrance, Refinement and a Ravishingly Seductive Perfume. In the past, the Wine was described as Feminine in character but in the last twenty years Château Margaux has Displayed more Weight and Concentration and today Represents the Perfect Balance between Finesse and Power. This Rare Bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thanks for looking.
