"Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The 1983 was the opening of a new chapter at Guiraud since it was the first vintage under proprietor Xavier Planty. Now at three decades of age it has certainly held up well. It has a slightly dusty bouquet with light mango and beeswax scents all with moderate definition, perhaps unable to disguise the rusticity of the wine prevalent under its previous owner. The palate actually delivers more than the nose promises. The acidity is crisp and cuts through the honeyed fruit with a pleasant, slightly oxidative, nutty finish. This is drinking perfectly now, but the acidity should see it age for another decade at least. Drink now-2023. Tasted April 2013." - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com #207 (Jun 2013)
