Classic Pauillac estate and a tremendous example of '82 Bordeaux. Still with youthful color and pure black fruits on the nose. Black berries, cassis and rocky earth are all entrenched with firm but velvety tannins finishing this ace.. #KorpiStrikesAgain

1947 and 1982 Grand Puy Lacoste! 47 had huge fruit for its age but a little ripe and tawny; 82 hit on all strides with cedar, cassis, and dark berries

2015 is the perfect drinking window for this 1982 Fifth Growth. One of the best wines ever made at this Chateau. Tonight the aromatics were incredible, lavender, pencil lead, leather, dark fruit. On the palate, incredible balance and delicious dark berry fruit, elegant and long lived. 90 sec finish. Wow!
