Faiveley Chambertin-Clos de Bèze 1983

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Fabulously elegant and graceful with fine balance. Luscious, focused and rich with a zesty acidity, from one of the greats of the region, indeed the world.

A classic example of Cheval Blanc's style, the 1983 continues to put on weight and develop favorably in the bottle. A saturated dark ruby color with some faint lightening at the edges exhibits less age than most right bank 1983s. The huge nose of mint, jammy black fruits, chocolate, and coffee is sensational, as well as surprisingly well-developed. The wine offers lusty, rich, unctuous fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, low acid, concentrated, rather hedonistic style. There are no hard edges to be found, but there is plenty of tannin in the lush finish. Gorgeous for drinking now, this is a great Cheval Blanc that should continue to drink well, and possibly improve for another 20 years. The 1983 is far superior to anything Cheval Blanc has subsequently produced. It remains somewhat undervalued for its quality.

A giant of a wine. The complex aromas and thickly textured flavors range from plum and raisin to coffee, minerals and mint. Not so elegant as a typical Cheval; more in the mold of the powerful '47 and legendary '21. Drink or hold.--Cheval-Blanc verti... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Cheval Blanc 750ml

Beautifully crafted, plump, very long and complex. Medium gold, lush and si lky, with lemon, fig, apricot, pear, and a particualrly elegant balance of acidity, fruit and wood. Power and finesse in the same package. Drink now through 2000. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Climens 750ml
