1982 Bordeaux

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Comment dire... j’ai bu beaucoup de vieux bordeaux mais je pense que celui-ci est le meilleur que j’ai goûté de ma vie, Je les aimes avec de l’age et celui-ci était définitivement le plus abouti. Bouteille parfaite, bu à mon sens à son peak. Des couches de saveurs, une complexité hors norme, le fruit est encore bien présent accompagné de sous-bois, de fumée, de boite à cigare, de terre. Mais surtout une persistance en bouche que j’ai rarement vu. J’en rêve encore. Grand vin — 12 days ago

A gift from a colleague some 15 years ago who retired this past Friday. Like him, this wine is still terrific. Happy Retirement, Bill! — 2 months ago

Château Pavie

Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

One of the last great vintages from Jean Paul Valette - deep purple color with a tawny rim, fresh nose of cedar and cassis with wonderful fruit soft tannin and along finish. Perfect now. — 17 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, opaque and regal in the glass. Notes of currants, black cherry, pencil lead, chopped walnuts and some dark soil. My deductive powers take me immediately to 82 Bordeaux. But which one? I guess 82 Latour. This is maybe the best Ducru I’ve had. — 2 months ago

Château Gloria

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Drink up! I liked the 1st glass better than the 2nd which says this wine needs to be consumed showing sweet red & black fruits on the palate with notes of cedar, leather, carob, forest floor & tobacco. — 16 days ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

From magnum. Opened and decanted 4 hrs before serving. Reddish tawny, regal color with lighter rims. Great old Bordeaux bouquet. Notes of dried cherries, tobacco leaf, cola, some rhubarb, forest floor and some old cherry wood. Well balanced and suave in the mouth. Paired well with steaks, and a great contrast to the younger Napa cabs. — a month ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Crushed seashell/ocean and pencil on the nose. Very secondary decomposing earthy palate with little fruit beyond blackberry seed. My daughter highlighted Soy Sauce on the nose as well...the padawan learns quick. — a month ago
