Product Overview

"This wine shows a good density of color. The nose of this great wine is pure. The blackcurrant dominates the fruit and then come notes of the truffle, soft, ripe and delicate. In the mouth the attack is savoury. There is great harmony in this soft though tannic wine throughout the tasting right up to the finale. Tannic strength combines with the grand softness and unctuousness of the ripe fruit. Its pulp fills the mouth with pleasure. This is a very great bottle for this already legendary millesime." - The Winemaker

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 99
An extraordinary effort that gets better with each tasting, this dark, murky, garnet/purple-colored 1982 exhibits a fabulously complex nose of hot bricks, asphalt, black fruits, tar, roast beef, and truffles, colossal concentration, super-ripeness, an unctuous texture, and low acidity. While still exceptionally youthful, this wine is powerful, dense, large-scaled, and intense. It is evolving at a snail's pace, but should continue to improve for another 10-15 years, and last for another three decades. A candidate for perfection!-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

Slightly rustic, but firm and youthful. Dark ruby color. Beautiful aromas of berries and stones, with a hint of black truffles. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, spicy-stony finish.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Best from 2000 through 2010. -JS
