1982 Bordeaux

Château Brane-Cantenac

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

A ridiculous amount of fruit remains intact here. A ton of secondary truffle & savory character shows. The vibrant nature is shocking in every good way. I modestly would say that I've been lucky enough to taste quite a few 82's and this is among the best ones. — 6 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Deliciously classic aged Bordeaux. This is exactly what I love about aged Bordeaux. Drinking beautifully tonight but still has a long life ahead of it. — 7 hours ago

Château Latour

Grand Vin de Château Latour Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

9.9

Deep ruby, nose of concentrated violet and fruit jam. Still youthful. Holding up in glass after four hours. Seems to have more potential than the 82 Lafite from the same night — 14 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

'82s were on fire. I'm saying the Mouton took WOTN but these all went quick and a second taste might have made a difference. I went and got the end of the Mouton during which time this one was finished. That good. — 7 days ago

Bought on release and perfect storage for the last 35 years--subterranean and temperature controlled cellar near the finger lakes. 1982 richness and beautiful aromatics. Perfectly mature but not yet on the downside. — 24 days ago

One of the most compelling examples from a vintage that is, in my opinion, not measuring up. — 14 days ago

One of my favorite drinking 82's. This GL is massively structured, rich & dense showing great aromatics with black fruits, smoked meats, mineral, graphite and a perfume of dried herbs , lavender & underbrush. — 21 days ago
