1982 Bordeaux

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Pretty ripe redfruits still both aromatically and on the palate, nicely balanced, a tad too straightforward, lacking some complexity, but in great condition, long finish. — 13 days ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

This is a tough one to rate. A 1982 and it drinks beautifully. Not on the decline at all, but happy I opened it for a nice post Xmas meal. The dark berries, leather and tobacco flavors blended and mellowed into a nicely rounded balanced flavor burst that comes out after an hour plus in the decanter. A truly great wine. — 2 months ago

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

We decanted and let her warm up from the cellar. Phenomenal as she warmed up and still felt tight and spicy and continued to develop. Reached a massive peak of fullness and complexity faster than expected about 90 minutes after decanting and started to flatten and loose something from there. Final glass to end the evening a full 3 hours later and there was still something there but next time, I would not decant. Rated based on the best drinking period. — 2 months ago

Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

Saint Guirons Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Merry Christmas all. Stepping back in time to 1982 is always a treat for Bordeaux and this Grand Puy Lacoste was the whole package. Tobacco, leather and dark fruits on the nose are replicated perfectly in the palate with a long finish. Felt like we stepped into a time machine. Just fantastic stuff. — 2 months ago
