Tasted 7 Times After Bottling With Consistent NotesAusone's 1983 is a powerful rich full-bodied wine with a higher alcohol content than normal. Medium ruby rich and jammy with low acidity but great concentration as well as that glorious perfume of minerals and Asian spices this wine should last 15-20 years but provide fine drinking early on - a rarity for Ausone. Anticipated maturity: now-2010.

Vinous minerally and penetrating with a suggestion of liqueur-like ripeness. Firm bright and classy with excellent grip. Finishes fairly tannic but long and sweet. A somewhat exotically styled Ausone that nonetheless displays considerable class. Drink now through 2015. 92 points

Wine Spectator, October 1994
Big fruity Bordeaux with loads of raspberry and jam character. Full-bodied and tannic but round and medium in finish. Needs time; only beginning to come out. Try after 1997.--The Bordeaux 50. –JS
