Lot #3. Palmer 1983

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"This wine goes from strength to strength, and is certainly a candidate for “wine of the vintage.” It has surpassed even Chateau Margaux in recent tastings. The color is an opaque plum/purple. The wine has a fabulously complex nose of smoked duck, white flowers, cedar, Asian spice, creme de cassis, melted licorice, and espresso. Super-concentrated, very powerful, full-bodied, and huge, this is undeniably, one of the biggest, most concentrated, and powerful Palmers made in the last 40 years. The wines has thrown off the rugged tannins that were so prominent during its first 10-15 years of life and has become increasingly seamless and compelling. Potentially this wine remains the most extraordinary Palmer after the 1961." Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition, Jan 2003
Notes: Base neck, oxidized capsule, scuffed label, slightly recessed cork, sign of slight past seepage.
