1982 Bordeaux

Château Fourcas Hosten

Listrac-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Vintage 1982 | I love nature wines and this is an excellent example that shows the greatness of 1982. Colour: Italian rooftiles. Cedar, spices, tobacco. Warm taste. Good balance. A treat! — 12 hours ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Just spectacular. Still full of vitality and smooth as silk. Dusty books, leather and tobacco with just the right amount of dark fruit to balance it out. The nose is super classic BDX. My only criticism of this wine is that the finish isn’t as long as I hoped, but that is a minor point. Had to go all out for wife’s pre-birthday celebration with some Aussie lamb for a classic pairing. — a month ago

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Crushed seashell/ocean and pencil on the nose. Very secondary decomposing earthy palate with little fruit beyond blackberry seed. My daughter highlighted Soy Sauce on the nose as well...the padawan learns quick. — 5 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, opaque and regal in the glass. Notes of currants, black cherry, pencil lead, chopped walnuts and some dark soil. My deductive powers take me immediately to 82 Bordeaux. But which one? I guess 82 Latour. This is maybe the best Ducru I’ve had. — a month ago

Château Sociando-Mallet

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

On first taste after decant seem to have a lot going on and showing a little age but all together. Our younger son is stranded with us and also helping us during the COVID-19 quarantine. He was born in 1982 so this wine for him. Big change from rustic to elegant 2 hours later with dinner. Would have not thought this wine was 38 years old. A lot of deep fruits, a bit of tar and some smoky wood on the nose. Taste was very interesting with a nice long finish. Don’t tell him it was only $18.49 back in the day — 2 months ago

A gift from a colleague some 15 years ago who retired this past Friday. Like him, this wine is still terrific. Happy Retirement, Bill! — 20 days ago

The color in the glass is a dead giveaway of the age of this sticky. Hints of charred oak and tobacco on the nose and palate, but overall, this is singing. Not overly sweet, but still presents a uncommon structure and density. — a month ago

@Ron R Yes Ron - Lakes Folly was legendary particularly when Dr Max Lake was making it. Such a good site even for the current winemaker I’m sure they still make great wine even though Max has passed. I met him once. He made a speech about pheromones in wine. A funny old bugger.
