It’s distinctive, and quite hard to describe. The palate is chewy and rich with a minerally, tarry, spicy character to the open dark fruits. Really lovely, earthy, spicy structure on the palate. A delicious thought-provoking wine. Very good/excellent.

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. A point. Drink now-2010.
