1983 Lafite - Wine Advocate # 88 - Aug 1993: The 1983 Lafite has come out of its dumb, monolithic stage and has begun to reveal the classic mineral, lead pencil, cedary perfume it is renowned for possessing. A forceful wine for Lafite, it offers medium to full body and good underlying structure, particularly for a 1983. Deeper and more compelling at age ten than it has been in the past, it should prove to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage. This terrific effort should reach its peak by the turn of the century and last at least 25-30 years. Last tasted, 6/93.
