1982 Bordeaux

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982


Still plenty of tannins. Full of flavour and nose, even if it’s supposedly past it’s drinking window. Demi-size. — 7 days ago

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1982

This had a perfumed nose with cassis, berry fruit, graphite, spice, mineral, cedar, earth, floral & cigar box. On the palate this had a soft, layered & silky texture that is just hitting its stride. — a month ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982


Great balance, depth and complexity. Perhaps near its peak. Not falling apart yet but it seems the fruit may be beginning to fade. So elegant and complex. — a month ago

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Delectable Wine

This bottle of 1982 Gruaud-Larose came direct from the château cellars. It is just pure joy on the nose with fabulous scents of black fruit, hung game (less so than previous bottles), clove and a faint aroma of a stately home. It manages to offer both ample fruit and life-affirming complexity. The palate has aged little since I last tasted it; there's more red fruit here, with freshly rolled tobacco, cedar and a touch more spiciness on the finish than previous tastings, with a sweet yet structured finish. This may well represent the finest bottle that I have encountered. (Neal Martin, Vinous, January 2023) — a day ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

The 1982 vintage of Château La Mission Haut Brion is one of my all-time favourites from this estate. Medium to deep garnet in colour, the nose offers a mesmerizing array of dried roses and black fruits, cigar box, bay leaf, leather, earth and a dash of blackcurrant pastilles. The dense and powerful palate knocks it out of the park with a full body, delicate savoury notes, spices and a core of very concentrated dried black fruits. The long and persistent finish confirms an outstanding wine, flirting with perfection. Drink now — 3 months ago
