Deep dark tawny color. Opaque. Fragrant nose right off the bat which says "this will be better than any of the other half dozen 82 LBs you've had". Notes of forest redwood, cigar leaf, moist earth, menthol and dark dusty berries. So rich and smooth in the mouth. Great balance of fruit and structure. Yes, best 82 LB I've had. Drink if you want today, but I don't think well stored bottles like this are going to be in decline anytime soon.

Decanted and drank over 2 hours. So much evolution in the glass. Ripe, weighty mid palate. Couldn't really be any better.

Still showing strong, think it shows why this producer has such prestige, as I've had many an '82 that has let me down...

Had the '85 the other day, this is a beautiful bottle yes, but I think the '85 out performs it, there's a classic '82 richness to it, but the fruit is starting to fade away a little.

Epic! Right in the sweet spot! absolute textbook G.C.C. that is perfect proof the 1855 is a joke! I sincerely hope it never gains the Unesco status some privileged Bordelais estates are hoping for, if this is considered 'fifth league'. Champagne & Burgundy bravo however! Truly deserving of their hard-fought Unesco world heritage status.
