92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2011

(75% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 8% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot; ph 3.61; IPT 53; 12.1% alcohol; 90% new oak):  Deep, saturated ruby-red with a hint of garnet at the rim.  Floral nose offers aromas of red cherry, orange rind, cedar and aromatic herbs.  Big, dense and concentrated, with ripe red cherry and plum flavors complemented by underbrush, sweet pipe tobacco and mint.  Finishes long, sweet and saline, with a very classic, refined mouth feel.  A very underrated vintage for Mouton, the 1983 has had to live under the shadow of the much more famous 1982.  My latest sample was devoid of the green notes that some previous bottles of the '83 have shown.

Ripened Fruit, Flora, Medium Body. Decanted for 1 hr but the aroma and palate can last for another 2 hrs. This is great wine.
