Château Palmer

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, almost opaque. Big shoulders in the nose. Complex. Notes of briary brush, raspberry, hickory, pepper and tobacco leaf. Mellow in the mouth, especially when compared to the big nose. Sweeter fruit finish. Took some deductive time with my guess... 82 Margaux which freaked out my friend who brought the bottle. This is in a good place, not sure if it will improve with more age. But it’s in no danger of declining anytime soon. — 3 months ago

Château Clerc Milon

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

An elegant wine - from a homerun vintage. Surprisingly dark colour for its age. Spice and tobacco on the nose. Elegant and smooth. Still nice structure and a long finish. What a treat to be able to drink!! — 2 months ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Ken's bday! What a treat! Like no other wines I've tasted, beyond elegant, earthy mushroom, plums and blackberries. Past it's prime but still had a strong sense of what it was at its peak. — a month ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Réserve Nicolas Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Last night I was fortunate enough to enjoy a bottle of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothchild that was stored with perfect provenance. Right out of the gate the core of dark fruits and exotic spices really impressed, as leather, pipe tobacco, red rose petal and forest floor tones also rounded out this evocative bouquet. The palate was utterly seamless, effortlessly gliding throughout. Silky, with a soft, pillowy texture, the wine unveiled blackberry compote, damp soil, Earl Grey tea and tobacco leaf flavors alongside a great level of tension. The length and viscosity of the wine was truly amazing. Gorgeous to enjoy at this stage, nearly in its 40th year, the 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothchild still has decades of life ahead of it.
