Beautiful, with wonderful kir, currant and spice aromas and flavors and super-fine tannins. Built for aging.
A deep ruby/purple color with garnet in the middle is followed by fragrant aromas of roasted herbs, briny olives, saddle leather, and steak tartare. With a round, sweet entry, medium to full body, a supple, fat mid-palate, and a diffuse but glycerin-dominated, thick, juicy finish, this wine suggests full maturity, but is capable of lasting another 10-15 years.
Focused, minerally. Gorgeous, round and velvety textured yet with very convincing freshness. This was a stunning bottle. True. Great combination of St-Estèphe rigour and 1982's richness. Not heavy. Tasting it was like a brush on the cheek with a feather. Lovely! 19/20 points.
