1983 from magnum. Not the most complex or explosive, but well-scaled, balanced and fresh.

Just had this in Bordeaux a few weeks ago. Like most wines of this vintage it took a bit of imagination to fully appreciate. It is clearly time to drink this wine, it may be on the downhill side of life. Overall a good experience for what was not noted as a premium vintage, but is a very solid wine.

Still life ahead, but absolutely in a beautiful place right now. Black Currants and cloves coat the palate with some herbal notes hitting the nose. Brilliant stuff, a real treat.
