Classic, dried red fruits with toasted leather and spice. A clean, fresh, mouthfeel as the acidity is bright and lends a feminine grace as the tannin has relented. Superb and should be extremely versatile with cuisine. #ducru

Neither corked not oxidized, but probably just past its prime: most fruit gone, tannins still there, but not much to hold up to its own heat. If you are sitting on an '83, it's probably not getting any better so drink it up!

Oddly stored and essentially too fruity for where the wine should be
