Wine Description

The color is deep gold, with a fine and delicate mousse. An aromatic explosion of lemon, lime, and spices amidst very floral notes greets the nose and gives a freshness to the bouquet. The taste is structured, with an ever-present but not aggressive acidity, which will allow it to age far over twenty years. This wine melds seemingly impossible contradictions – ample yet delicate, creamy acidity, dense yet elegant.

    (1983 Vintage) Maturing aromas of toffee, honey and Tokaj like damp earth. Quite concentrated and complex, with mineral and apple flavors approaching full maturity. Rather penetrating acidity gives the wine a firm structural underpinning but clashes with the older flavors. Finishes with a slight phenolic edge. Will this come into better harmony, or is this wine beginning its downward slope?
