Very ripe, sweet black fruit and black pepper. A little thin and superficial, but pleasant nonetheless.

While the prior bottle exhibited all sorts of nuances, this was exceptionally fresh and primary. Parker has it right, this will last forever if properly stored.

Great spice and vibrant red fruit. Nice depth, not too long of a finish and the alcohol was present but wonderful flavors.

Very primary and forward red and black fruit. Some earth. The alcohol pierced the fruit and while this was fresh and vibrant it didn't have much depth.

This struck me much differently tonight. Outstanding ripe red fruit, spice and a nice mineral component. Forward, fresh, up front but the spice is really what did it. No need to wait, drink now.

Better than the last bottle. No funk, just great silky herbal notes. A real treat from a 'lesser' vintage.

Dark fruit, smoke, gravel, graphite on the nose. Carried through to the palate. This was excellent, but next to the 1990, this seemed a touch more angular and not as full in the mouth.

1982 Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/24/2015 - johnh1001 wrote: 95 points

From an absolutely perfect bottle. Decanted for 1 hour and drank over 2. Very reserved nose of sweet red and black fruit, some cinnamon, coffee and violet. Brilliant on the palate with more sweet fruit, which came out with time in the glass, superb balance and an a wonderful silkiness that can only come with age. Medium++ on the finish and after hour 3, this fell off only slightly.
