1983 Haut Brion - 750ml
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 91 Points
Tasted at lunch at La Trompette. I have always had a soft spot for the Haut-Brion 1983 as one of the 'friendliest' of the First Growths. Though not a top-tier Haut-Brion, the 1983 has developed a fine earthy, leathery bouquet that is similar to the ’86 but without the same vigour or complexity. The palate is very harmonious with a citrus-tinged entry, its lack of depth and length compensated by poise and tension. Sandalwood, cedar and a touch of truffle and smoke towards the finish. Lovely.
