1982 Bordeaux

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

This is all kinds of sexy. Subtle velvety fruit with real texture and luxurious soft cherry fruit. Wonderful balance and clarity and a beautiful long finish. Great stuff. — 15 days ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

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

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Amazing showing for this Cos at 37 yrs old that kept building its aromatic flavors with time in the glass displaying notes of dark cherry, berry, plum, earth, licorice, spice box, tobacco. Rich & full bodied that seems to be aging slowly. — 19 days ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

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

Château de Sales

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

9.1

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

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

I can’t think of another vintage of GL that rivals the 82 including the 59, 61 & 45. Rich & full bodied showing red & black fruits, cassis, earth, cedar, leather, tobacco & dried herbs. This wine is still youthful & should have a long life. — 2 months ago

Awesome., had a 1918 magnum with revana, sobel, and schwartz at berns a couple years back, $695 off the list, was legendary, GL makes exceptional wines in exceptional vintages for a bargain —-

Agree Bryan I am a big fan of the older GL’s. Never tried the 1918 but from mag it must have been very special
