Tasting Notes

Finally, the 1983 Lafite is beginning to shed its tannin. The wine exhibits a deep ruby/garnet color with only a slight lightening at the edge. The intoxicatingly perfumed nose of lead pencil, pain grille, red and black fruits, minerals, and roasted herbs is provocative. In the mouth, this wine displays considerable body for a Lafite, plenty of power, and a fleshy, rich, sweet mid-palate. Long, elegant, plump, and surprisingly fleshy, this outstanding example of Lafite seems largely forgotten given the number of high quality vintages during the golden decade of the eighties. Anticipated maturity: Now-2030.

Provenance

This collection is a small part of a 10,000+ bottle cellar that has been meticulously kept at perfect temperature and humidity. Iron Gate has personally known this client for 10 years and even assisted in originally setting up this cellar when it was originally built by one of the top wine cellar designers in Toronto. Inventory was managed with an eSommelier system and to say that ultimate, almost obsessive care was taken in storing these wines would be un understatement. The collector himself is well connected in the wine world and always purchased from top producers and/or futures. The sale is a result of a migration to Burgundy in his drinking habits.
