Opened this 1983 Corton for my tasting group tonight. 馃嵎馃拃This wine was on life support, so I pulled the cork on it to celebrate it's life with a few wine friends路 The nose was quite oxidized showing dried leaves, earth, dried red fruits, and balsamic notes. However, there was still some life left on the palate. Showing sour cherry, dried cranberry, tobacco, cedar, dried spices, and earth. The wine had very chalky fine-grained tannins. Good length, but hard to get past the nose for more than a glass路 馃敂 As with all aged wine storage is above all else路 馃嵎 The wine glass is the Zieher Selection Balanced Glass @zieher _selection
