Wine Description

(1982 Vintage) This has always been one of the wines of the vintage. Harmonious and beautifully structured. Brilliant ruby color, with a hint of garnet. A bounty of cherry, tobacco and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and tannic, with velvety texture and medium finish.

    Rating: 92(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 78, May/June 1998 Ruby-red, not quite as deep as the '96. Exotic, sweet aromas of currant, lead pencil, spice and woodsmoke. A huge wine that conveys a sense of sheer power, but not quite as delineated or stylish as the '96. This really explodes on the aftertaste, but the '96 is more subtle. Clearly first-growth size, but less fine than the '96.
