Wine Description

1983 is turning out to be a fine vintage for Mouton. Although not a big wine,
this medium-weight Mouton displays an attractive nose of blackcurrants,
black-cherries, olives, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable
tannin in the finish, as well as beautiful elegance and complexity, this wine
is close to reaching its plateau of maturity.
(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)

    Evolving in a positive fashion, 1983 is turning out to be a fine vintage for Mouton. Although not a big wine, this medium-weight Mouton displays an attractive nose of blackcurrants, black-cherries, olives, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin in the finish, as well as beautiful elegance and complexity, this wine is close to reaching its plateau of maturity. I have always thought it resembled this property’s 1966. It should last for another 20 years. Last tasted, 7/93.”
