Château Brane-Cantenac

Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Exceptional. Red fruits on the nose blood and iron on the finish. Great weight and mouthfeel. More complex current, cassis and anise notes came out with air. — a month ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Tasted blind. Reddish scarlet color. Odd nose with notes like roseste and asian tea that led me to think this was Italian. Rustic with chicory notes that come on. Good wine, but the lowest performer of the 45/59/61/82/86 Moutons we were treated to tonight. — 20 days ago

Château Rouget

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

This second bottle from case was excellent. Needed masses of air. Initially mute & stalky on the nose. With an hour started to wake and at three was singing. Definitely an older style— less precise even at forty years than modern vintages but you could also see where this was heading. Should evolve and improve flavor definition further & further while at plateau for next 10-15 (very youthful). For me characteristic Rouget “iron” terroir note coming through beautifully in mid-palate. Excellent value — 15 days ago
