1982 Bordeaux

Château Calon-Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Less forward than the last bottle about 18 mos back. Still lovely. Cedary, minerally, mature St. Estephe. Red fruit very much an echo now. Excellent length and decades left if well stored. To seek out in magnum. — 15 days ago

One of my favourite wines ever the ‘82 Margaux. If not the best, certainly in the top 3.

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Too much evolution in this bottle but still alive and interesting. — 2 months ago

i’ve had one bottle of this and it was a 10.0 in my book. (pre delectable)

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Scarlet, with a deep dark center and clear rims. Great nose with notes of black fruit, gravel, spice, pencil lead, earth and old cedar desk wood. Mellow and silky in the mouth. High quality juice with decades of enjoyment still in front of it. — 20 days ago

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Slightly deeper garnet , narrower garnet rim . More spicy red and dark fruits , floral touches , wood smoke , quite elegant almost Burgundian in elegance . Sweeter on the palate , sous bois strawberry , cassis and red currant with more tannin , long and well balanced . Starting to drink well , at peak though this will still go for a further 10 years or so in this format — a month ago

Thank you for the comprehensive notes. Just picked up three bottles of the ‘82.

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

This is wonderful. Soft black cherry, plush damson and violets, a hint of graphite. Great texture. So harmonious and complete. Enchanting. As good as bordeaux gets. Wow — 2 months ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Dark rubi robe with a slight brick color on the rim. One would never say its over 40 years old. Cedar notes intertwined with dark cherries, tobacco, pencil lead, and secondary aromas. Dense, rich, but balanced and fresh, its a bold Pauillac ready to drink but absolutely no rush. Great bottle and one of the best 82s we tasted. — 25 days ago

Château La Lagune

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Slightly hazy (poor reflection on my impatient decanting ) but quite deep garnet, wide terracotta rim . Slightly high toned , quite meaty dried mushroom nose, red currant , degraded blackberry and earthy notes. Just a bit rustic and lacks a bit of definition and interest to be honest . On the palate shows better with good poise and roundness, finely judged acidity with , ripe and quite vivid mix of red and dark fruit. Touch of sous bois and grafite , seems younger on the palate than the nose or appearance would indicate. Good persistence too , with rounded still noticeable tannins . Overall an ok showing , and only started deteriorating after 3 hours in decanter , especially considering the upper shoulder ullage, there will be better bottles out there . Drink now and over the next 5 -7 years . — a month ago
