Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker

This is a beautifully made wine, and certainly one of the two finest made at this estate during the eighties. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple. A classic nose of overripe black currants, plums, and sweet vanillin is followed by a wine with considerable opulence, and a seductive, fleshy mouthfeel. The wine's low acidity and gorgeously pure, rich fruit with copious quantities of glycerin make for a beautiful tasting experience. Although the 1983 has reached full maturity, it exhibits no signs of drying out.

colour: garnet with light tawny rim. nose: dusty oak. cedar. classic old claret. very muted red fruit. taste: smooth on the entry but with little weight or depth of flavour. nicely made but in decline. I have had better bottles of this before so feel that this bottle is not representative. grape skin on the finish. a bit backward. disappointing. REVIEW TEXT. this wine was much improved after 3 hours in the decanter. I have re-scored higher to reflect this improvement.
