1983 began with a mild winter, favourable to early bud break in the second half of March, followed by a rather rainy early spring, then a warm and dry weather until September but punctuated by large thunderstorms which nevertheless maintained a moisture conducive to the development of diseases. The good, warm and dry weather, which set in from mid-September stopped this development, and allowed for the harvest under a radiant sun, and an abundant harvest on this vintage.
Alcohol content at bottling:
Date of distillation:
Colour: dark amber and mahogany.
The nose is warm, very complex, and exudes aromas of undergrowth, strawberry cooked in cauldron, Christmas jam.
The mouth is very ample, generous, and keeps a certain freshness on the spices -with clove in the finish- and cedar wood.
