Paul Jaboulet Aine Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Thalabert, 1983

My son, who was born in 1983, has had this 1983 Thalabert at least eight or nine times as his birthday wine, and he still enjoys it almost as much as I do. Even after 38 years, it still seems to get better each year.

The color has lightened considerably with some brickish garnet tones. Beautiful mature scents of dried cranberry, truffles, leather and olives.Equally intense flavors that dance on the tongue and blend beautifully with food (pork tenderloin braised in milk). Finish that lasts forever. This 1983 and the 1990 Thalabert Crozes are as good as any Hermitage I have had.
