Château Beau-Site Haut-Vignoble

St. Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1982

A bunch of friends came over last night. A few wine bums and one guy who knew nothing about wine, so I asked him to pull bottles out of my cellar and serve them to us blind (my best bottles are in cabinets). This was really tasty, with pencil shavings and cherries on the nose, and racy acidity (in a good way). So much so that I thought it was Portuguese:-& Steve pinned it as an ‘82 Cru Bourgeois from St Estephe or Pauillac, which was quite something given how atypical it was. — 10 months ago
