1983 Hospices de Beaune Beaune 1er Cru Cuvée Guigone de Salins - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru (7/2/2012)
Dark red color, slight dimming on the edge. Great looking wine for a 29 year old 1er from a not so great vintage!
Nose: Sois bois, Saddleleather, bit of candied cherry
Palate: Cinnamon, dark cherry, tar and flint. Finish of worn leather that melds slowly to leafy, forest floor. 20 second finish. Still has fruit and acidity. Nice surprise.
Last sips showed abit of menthol. B+
