1982 Bordeaux

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Deep, dark blackberry fruit with menthol, graphite, spice, cedar, mineral & tobacco notes. This seems to be fully mature that will hold for many years — 10 days ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Cigar box, black currants, cassis, lovely, somewhat mature fruit, still shows a somewhat firm structure, seems close to fully mature, very long finish, but I’d bet will still hold another decade in a cool cellar, one of the great bargains of the 1982 vintage on release!! — a month ago

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Delectable Wine

The 1982 Léoville Poyferré is a vintage that I have not seen for a while. This bottle is splendid. It is Ferrous on the nose and offers wilted rose petals, asphalt and pencil shavings, now firmly into its secondary aromatic phase yet maintaining impressive delineation and freshness. Maybe a little rustic compared to recent vintages, yet charming. The palate is very well balanced, and there is a touch of Brettanomyces that would be understandable given the warmth of the growing season. Cedar and graphite flourish toward the finish. This is at a peak now, and as I averred before, I would drink these sooner unless you have larger formats on your hands. Tasted at Burns & German's dinner to celebrate The Complete Bordeaux Vintage Guide book at Medlar. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2023)

Château Gruaud Larose

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

A wine that I have had many times that never disappoints. This had a nose you could smell all night. Lots of black fruits, sweet & savory with spice box, cedar, leather, game, lead pencil & cigar ash. This was still fresh, almost youthful with many years left. — a month ago
