"Destined to forever be in the shadow of the impeccable 1961 Palmer, the 1961 Chateau Margaux remains an attractive wine, if not one that reached its full potential. Now at 55 years of age, it has developed a dark mahogany core. The nose is attractive, but as I have noticed with respect to previous bottles, it does lack expected vivacity and intensity, yet pleasure can still be found in the vestiges of black fruit, cedar and cigar box; perhaps this bottle a little more Burgundy-like than I remember. The palate is nicely structured, straight-laced and correct, though there is plenty of freshness. It is quite a masculine wine with hints of dried blood emerging towards the foursquare finish. It will probably last a few years, but spare its blushes by not serving it against the 1961 Palmer. Tasted May 2016." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Oct 28, 2016).
