The 1983 has consistently improved since bottling and is a far greater wine than I ever imagined after tasting it from cask. It exhibits the classic honeyed pineapple and spicy oakiness that makes Climens so profound. In the mouth this wine is opulent extremely rich with gobs of glycerin yet enough acidity to give it plenty of definition and crispness. It is a beautifully made even stunning Barsac that is eclipsed by the great 1986 and 1988. Anticipated maturity: Now-2009. Last tasted 11/9
