1982 Bordeaux

Château Mouton Rothschild

Réserve Nicolas Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Last night I was fortunate enough to enjoy a bottle of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothchild that was stored with perfect provenance. Right out of the gate the core of dark fruits and exotic spices really impressed, as leather, pipe tobacco, red rose petal and forest floor tones also rounded out this evocative bouquet. The palate was utterly seamless, effortlessly gliding throughout. Silky, with a soft, pillowy texture, the wine unveiled blackberry compote, damp soil, Earl Grey tea and tobacco leaf flavors alongside a great level of tension. The length and viscosity of the wine was truly amazing. Gorgeous to enjoy at this stage, nearly in its 40th year, the 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothchild still has decades of life ahead of it.

Drink up! I liked the 1st glass better than the 2nd which says this wine needs to be consumed showing sweet red & black fruits on the palate with notes of cedar, leather, carob, forest floor & tobacco. — a month ago

Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, almost opaque. Big shoulders in the nose. Complex. Notes of briary brush, raspberry, hickory, pepper and tobacco leaf. Mellow in the mouth, especially when compared to the big nose. Sweeter fruit finish. Took some deductive time with my guess... 82 Margaux which freaked out my friend who brought the bottle. This is in a good place, not sure if it will improve with more age. But it’s in no danger of declining anytime soon. — 25 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Comment dire... j’ai bu beaucoup de vieux bordeaux mais je pense que celui-ci est le meilleur que j’ai goûté de ma vie, Je les aimes avec de l’age et celui-ci était définitivement le plus abouti. Bouteille parfaite, bu à mon sens à son peak. Des couches de saveurs, une complexité hors norme, le fruit est encore bien présent accompagné de sous-bois, de fumée, de boite à cigare, de terre. Mais surtout une persistance en bouche que j’ai rarement vu. J’en rêve encore. Grand vin — a month ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Absolutely love this wine. Tight upon opening. Gained texture and fruit after an hour decant. The nose is highly aromatic and stupidly complex. Began to deteriorate after five hours in a decanter. — a month ago

Château Pavie

Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

One of the last great vintages from Jean Paul Valette - deep purple color with a tawny rim, fresh nose of cedar and cassis with wonderful fruit soft tannin and along finish. Perfect now. — a month ago
