Like Certan de May, I bought this in both half and 750 ml bottles. Only recently have the half bottles reached full maturity, and the 750 ml remains a massive, backward wine for long-term aging. A dense, opaque garnet color is followed by notes of roasted meats, herbs, black currants, incense, and damp earth. Full-bodied, still extremely tannic (sweet but noticeable tannins), rich, and backward, where perfectly stored, this 1982 will last for another 50 years. The estate has always compared it to their 1947, which is still a vibrant wine, and the 1982 should be just as profound. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040.

Not the most complex wine, but rich and youthful. Dark ruby in color, with a garnet edge. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins, cherry and wet earth aromas and a fruity, crisp finish.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1998



Very deep crimson with some evolution. Gentle, big, bloody start and then quite rustic fruit. Chewy finish.www.jancisrobinson.com, 15 Jul 2002
