The best-sealed bottle of the 3 I purchased (The second was a dud.) A sleeping beauty with initial notes of chocolate, fig and date soon woke up (last 2 glasses of the bottle, thankfully with my friend born in 1983). Silky cherry and dark red fruit, with notes of root-beer and caramel. A generous building, long-lasting finish with bing cherry and plum. An odd material clinging to the cork - not the typical tartrate crystals I would expect - light yellowish blobs that felt sandy to the touch. Sulfur? I'm curious...

Decanted around 2.5 hours, crimson color with a brown hue, currant and chocolate nose, lively notes of black raspberry and more chocolate on the palette, long red raspberry finish with notes of watermelon and licorice. Very velvety once it aired out, and looking forward to drinking this wine again the in the near future -- perhaps at its peak now, or on its way out.

We were surprised to see that the wine was still quite tannic. Unfortunately there was not the fruit to back it up so the overall effect was a little disappointing.

The first wine made under the direction of the new owners, the 1983 La Mission-Haut-Brion has taken on some amber to its dark garnet color. It offers a big, spicy nose of roasted herbs, black fruits,... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

The1983 is the first La Mission-Haut-Brion produced under Jean Delmas and his staff. The wine offers sweet asphalt, smoked meat, and animal scents in its provocative bouquet. It is dark garnet-colore... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml

Concentrated and polished, this wine shows a deep color and intense aromas and flavors of cherry, mint, plum and lead pencil. Full-bodied and reserved with excellent tannins. Better after 1998.--The Bordeaux 50. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1983 Mission Haut Brion, La 750ml
