Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Great aged appearance and well bricked with a very interesting nose upon immediate opening. Minerals, slight rotting veg, blackberry and rhubarb. The fruit is now slightly on the wane however, it is a very distinguished drink that shows its age in a classic Bordeaux way. Smooth, mouth filling and silky but still with fruit on the finish. Very excellent. — a month ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Réserve Nicolas Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Smells like aged Bordeaux. Tar, cedar, tobacco, wet mulch. Starting it’s downward slope. This bottle not showing a lot. Tanins still grip but weak on fruit. Length is good but no real power or finesse here. She’s a bit over the hill. But she’s still got class. — a month ago

Baron Philippe de Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Really intense, perfumed nose but this bottle lacks the intensity I’ve had from other old Bordeaux. Did not think it lived up to my expectations — a month ago
