1982 Bordeaux

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

I can’t think of another vintage of GL that rivals the 82 including the 59, 61 & 45. Rich & full bodied showing red & black fruits, cassis, earth, cedar, leather, tobacco & dried herbs. This wine is still youthful & should have a long life. — 8 days ago

Awesome., had a 1918 magnum with revana, sobel, and schwartz at berns a couple years back, $695 off the list, was legendary, GL makes exceptional wines in exceptional vintages for a bargain —-

Agree Bryan I am a big fan of the older GL’s. Never tried the 1918 but from mag it must have been very special

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Leather, cedar, dirt, barnyard, horse sweat, pencil shavings, old car leather, musty. Sweet on the palate. Long length, fruit still youngish, light body. — a month ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Very opaque, still a big nose of black currants and cassis. No need to hold any longer. A joy to have now. — 2 months ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Amazing. This is the perfect example of a perfect bottle. I would be generous in guessing 1990 but really is more like a 1996 in freshness. Might be my wine of the year! — 14 days ago
