1981 Beychevelle

RP 83 / WS 81

The 1981 is significantly lighter than either the 1982 or 1983. Forward, quite fruity, with a straightforward, oaky, fruity bouquet, medium bodied, with a healthy color, this is a supple, soft, charming wine that already provides pleasant drinking. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 1/88.
