Showing some signs of maturity to the rim. The nose still seems to suggest restraint – though there is no denying the underlining richness. Typically for a 1983 this has a firm backbone, though fleshier fruit is overlaid. In the glass the wine is still remarkably assertive but with plenty of rich, broad spicy fruit to balance it out. There is no hurry to drink up – this example will run and run. Very fine and a vintage in our view underrated by the market.
