Turns out this is pretty damn good. No note. Just enjoyed the living crap out of this with my buddy @Nathaniel DiMaggio — 8 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

A bit light for an ‘82 but not surprising for a second growth. Still wonderful. No tannins. Raspberry and leather. Long finish. — a month ago

Château Croix de la Nauve

Saint Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Château Croix de la Nauve Saint Emilion 1982, Bordeaux, France

Time for
#MerlotThursday. Here is a gorgeous one from Bordeaux.

Dark brown in color with a wide copper rim.

Nose of cherries, blueberries, wood, licorice, spices, dark coffee, green tea, light barnyard, black pepper and tobacco.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, earth, wet leaves, leather, light vegetables, spices, tobacco leaf, black tea, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium finish with no tannins and cherries.

This Saint Emilion from a the great 1982 vintage is drinking very nicely now. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Smooth, soft and elegant.

Not very earthy, which surprised me, and easy drinking. Simpler on the nose than on the palate, and still holds lots of fruits.

Good right out of the bottle and didn't need much to open up.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

91 points.

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

One of my favorite vintages of GL that I have had many times over the last few years. This has been fully mature & still holding showing red & black fruits, cedar, leather, earth, tar, forest floor, licorice & tobacco. One of the reasons why I love older Bordeaux! — 15 days ago

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Dusty that I snagged on a whim at auction. Very thin with notes of olives on the finish. Definitely an old style Bordeaux, but certainly not the best expression. — a month ago

Château La Mondotte

Comtes de Neipperg Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Interesting how much of a vintage a smaller wine can carry. Lots of tertiary aromas, extraordinary viscosity and glycerin on the palate, almost oily, i find this very enjoyable if you are into aged claret. — a month ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

It cannot be 38 years old is all I could think when I popped the cork. I can only wish I was as youthful as this wine. Black fruit, chocolate, smoke/tobacco...elegant , structured. Delicious — 2 months ago
