1983 Domaine de Chevalier, Graves
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This beautiful, fully mature 1983 exhibits a dark garnet color in addition to gorgeous aromas of smoked herbs, earth, licorice, black fruits, and minerals. The elegant, complex perfume is followed by equally compelling, medium-bodied, expansive, savory flavors. It is a model of opulence, elegance, and finesse. Anticipated maturity: now-2006. Last tasted, 1/03.
Beautiful and elegant with ripe aromas and flavors of cherry and vanilla. Medium-bodied and firm with a fresh finish. Drinkable now.--The Bordeaux 50.
