The 1982 Chateau Léoville-Barton red wine is a stunning bottling from this famed vintage in Bordeaux. Generously shared by some friends, and needing very little time in the decanter to evolve, the 1982 Léoville-Barton opens with a captivating nose of sour red cherry, cigar box with shades of white truffle and a striking herbaceousness. There is a wonderful, seamless quality to this wine that evokes a harmonious balance on the mid-palate. A bright saline streak dashes through this incredible wine. Showing a wonderfully soft mouthfeel, the wine slowly unveils layers of sour red fruits, exotic spices, red bell pepper, anise and hints of wild blackberry that all marvelously combine with the toasty oak. While absolutely delightful now, this stunning wine will has more than a decade of life left. Drink 2019-2035- 95

Purchased from an original owner. Top shoulder fill. Cork came out in one piece, soaked 3/4 through. Not much fruit here, basically all tertiary, but enjoyable for those that appreciate dried tobacco and cigar box. — 2 months ago

1982. Medium-smoky nose; a little reduced at first. Decanted sediment, breathed for an hour with delicious results. Cedar, dark red fruit, leather and a tinge of remnant tannins made for a very satisfying experience. Worth the wait! — 2 months ago
