90 points Wine Spectator: "This is right up with the major-league 1983s. It is extremely full and concentrated, with a massive fruit structure. Inky color, very concentrated black currant nose, full-bodied, with tons of tannin, velvety fruit flavors and a closed finish. Truly excellent. (JS, Web Only-1989)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My experience with this house is limited. One rarely sees this brand stateside. The 1983 is rich, full-bodied, well-colored, and complex." (01/1989)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still one of the best wines from this vintage, particularly in the Medoc, this wine shows notes of licorice, compost, saddle leather, and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and lush, with low acidity, ripe fruit, and an intriguing underlying smoky, herbaceous note... (RP)" (01/2003) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Sexy, almost decadent, featuring rich tobacco, chocolate, and wet earth aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very silky with a long rich finish. (JS)" (10/1994)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A superb achievement from a very underrated year. Deep dark ruby-purple, with rich floral and violet aromas, full-bodied, with masses of strawberry flavors, full tannins and a long finish. (JS, Web Only-1989)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than ...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.The 1983 is rich, concentrated, very fruity, and magnificently perfumed, suggesting that it is going to mature early, long before the 1977. (RP)" (01/1989) Jancis Robinson: "Mid crimson and slightly grey. Very sweet and round and slightly raisiny. Slight rustic edge but very ripe and round and lively with a certain freshness and punch. Long and powerful. Looking good for the future, A confident wine. ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wine...

1983 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)
Back In Stock!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This looks to be a good Suduiraut. A medium golden color, with a very honeyed, rich, floral bouquet... Sweet, with fine honeyed flavors, this is an elegant, graceful Suduiraut with plenty of character... (RP)" (01/1998) Wine Spectator: "Delicious and balanced, showing exciting earthy, white truffle flavors that add complexity to the honey and spice notes. Medium intensity. " (04/1995)
Price: $49.99


Bastor-Lamontagne is clean and richly fruited as a rule, sees very little oak, is consistently excellent in quality and flies firmly under the radar of Sauternes lovers everywhere . Never too expensive, this release is a great fois gras wine. Buy it when you can find it- this is an intelligent purchase for current consumption. Joe Zugelder

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1983 Vintage Port is up for a status check. It is in a pretty good place now. It's been as hard as nails over the years. Not anymore. With softened tannins and a medley of old Port flavors on the finish, this is both sensual and delicious, with velvety texture and an irresistible finish. It doesn't have that hard edge any more, but it does wake up and become more intense with some air. At least from this bottle, it comes together rather promptly and drinks well. It's lacking just a bit of firmness, but its co...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Extremely harmonious, so complex it keeps you going back for another sip in a vain attempt to pick out the fruit flavors. Medium gold, unabashedly lush and ripe, with complex sweet fruit, oak and tobacco. The finish echoes forever." (01/1988)

1983 Rieussec, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
94 points Wine Spectator: "Nectar-like if a bit on the sweet side, impressively complex, concentrated and focused. Deep gold, big, sweet and rich, with gobs of concentrated fig, brown sugar, butterscotch and oak flavor. A knockout. *Top Wines of 1988*" (01/1988) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Light golden with just the slightest tint of green, the 1983 Rieussec, from an excellent year for Sauternes, is certainly one of this property's greatest wines. Well structured with excellent acidity, and a deep, long, rich, full-bodied, viscous texture...

1983 Pichon Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
97 points Decanter: "Awesome, richly textured, powerful still with its ripe yet now-savoury red fruits on display, the sweetness edged out by truffles and spice. A great wine that remains full of life. One of the best Pauillacs in the vintage. 8% Petit Verdot finishes the blend (although in all likelihood this is the vineyard planting, not the specific blend that was being recorded). Harvesting began on October 1. (JA)" (06/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Bold pepper, savory and roasted cedar notes lead the way, with a core of steeped plum, macerated ...

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1983 Mayacamas Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92JG). John Gilman: "In notable contrast to the very highly praised Cabernet vintages of 1984 through 1987, virtually no one had anything nice to say about the difficult vintage of 1983, and yet the Mayacamas ’83 is excellent. At age twenty-four the bouquet is quite Pichon Lalande-like, as it offers up notes of sweet cassis, tobacco, coffee, bell pepper, earth and cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is medium-full, poised and complex, with lovely focus and purity and a long, tangy and highly polished finish. The ’83 Mayacamas Cabernet does not possess the same depth, power and dimension one is accustomed to in this fine bottling in more highly acclaimed vintages, but it lacks for nothing in its more understated and intensely flavored style. Clearly this approach has yielded one of the most remarkable examples of this very difficult Cabernet vintage. " (01/2008)
