Fully mature since it was released, the 1983 Haut-Marbuzet continues to offer that decadent, flashy style that admirers of this estate's wines enjoy. The huge nose of jammy black-raspberry fruit, coffee, smoky oak, and herbs leaps from the glass. Medium to full-bodied and voluptuous, this soft, fat, viscously textured wine is still alarmingly low in acidity, yet it shows no sign of decline. The color exhibits some amber at the edge, but, wow, what an explosive, ripe, intense mouthfeel this wine provides! It should drink well until the end of this decade. Last tasted, 5/93.
