Château La Tour Figeac, Saint-Émilion 1983

1982 Bordeaux is a vintage that savvy sommeliers sell; 1983 is the vintage that savvy sommeliers drink. The ‘82s started out opulent but many have started to fade, as if their fruit has been scorched by all the limelight. The ‘83s, however, are smoky, floral and, well– fabulous, showing off the kind of ripe fruit and warming spice for which the finest Bordeaux is known.

Here's what you should know about it:
  • Saint-Émilion is one of Bordeaux’s best villages. Their wines tend to be cab franc heavy.
  • This is what’s known as “Right Bank” Bordeaux in ‘somm speak.’
  • La Tour Figeac’s vineyards are right across the street from Cheval Blanc’s. That’s a good neighbor.
Things we actually said...

"A Grand Cru Bordeaux from a great vintage that’s been aged for more than a quarter century shouldn't cost less than $100. Today it does. Bordeaux just makes sense in the winter time, and a bottle like 1983 La Tour Figeac like this turns any takeout into a white tablecloth experience."
