Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The few critics that Michel Rolland still has need to taste this wine to understand a wine that was fabulous to drink young, yet at age 27 continues to perform incredibly well. A classic Pomerol, it boasts a dark garnet color with only slight lightening at the edge as well as sensational aromas of creme brulee, chocolate-covered black cherries and currants, figs, and plums, full-bodied, powerful, rich flavors, and tremendous purity, opulence, and length. I thought this 1982 would be in its grave a decade ago, but it continues to show just what great balance and length can mean in Bordeaux. It should drink well for another 10 years. Release price: ($85.00/case). Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 183



This slightly bad bottle tastes much fresher than it looks. Fresh blueberries have a hint of bark and fresh mushroom. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a ripe fruit and chocolate aftertaste.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 1998
