Reviews for 1983 Lafite-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

JS 96
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, March 2012
This is Lafite. Prune and spices, with a cedar and wet tobacco character on the nose. Even tea. Full and rich with a dark China tea and cedar character. Just a hint of chocolate. Opens in the glass like a genie. Amazing.

The wine exhibits a deep ruby/garnet color with only a slight lightening at the edge. The intoxicatingly perfumed nose of lead pencil pain grille red and black fruits minerals and roasted herbs is provocative. In the mouth this wine displays considerable body for a Lafite plenty of power and a fleshy rich sweet mid-palate. Long elegant plump and surprisingly fleshy this outstanding example of Lafite seems largely forgotten given the number of high quality vintages during the golden decade of the eighties. Anticipated maturity: Now-2030. Last tasted 3/97 -Bordeaux Book 3rd Edition

Another excellent vintage for Lafite. Extremely fresh with lovely blackberry and cassis character a medium body and full tannins. Needs time. Try after 1996.--The Bordeaux 50. -JS
