Tasted 7 Times After Bottling With Consistent NotesAusone's 1983 is a powerful, rich, full-bodied wine with a higher alcohol content than normal. Medium ruby, rich, and jammy, with low acidity but great concentration as well as that glorious perfume of minerals and Asian spices, this wine should last 15-20 years, but provide fine drinking early on - a rarity for Ausone. Anticipated maturity: now-2010. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 95



Big fruity Bordeaux with loads of raspberry and jam character. Full-bodied and tannic, but round and medium in finish. Needs time. only beginning to come out. Try after 1997.--The Bordeaux 50. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1994



Healthy ruby with definite brick rim. Low-key and rather simple nose. Lots of acidity. Rather ungainly and awkward. Chewy and very dry. Much less sweet than 1. Quite stern.www.jancisrobinson.com, 28 Jun 2002
