  • Stall, skog, rökig väldigt balancerad doft. Även läder och ceder- Doften är extremt bra balancerad och jag skulle nästan vilja säga att doften är perfekt.

    Smaken är så härlig, med tobak, blommor, cigarrlåda, höstskog, vädligt djup balancerad och faktiskt helt perfekt. Detta är ett vin som jag tycker är helt fantasistkt bra. En ynnest att få dricka.

  • Wonderful mature left bank nose rises from the glass.
    Talk about fine claret.
    Lovely stable, dust, pencil lead and shavings, cedar wood, cigar box, leather, animal, smoke, forest floor, mushrooms, graphite, wet gravel and fine red cassis with some blackberries.
    Palate is developed and silky, with good length, and excellent balance.
    Acid and wonderful ripe cassis, dust and tobacco leafs with a touch of herbs.
    Ripe and fine, with a long and complex layered finish.
    Will easily be a vigorous wine for at least another decade, since the material in this fine wine is still very much alive.

  • Aromas of dirt and crushed rose petals. Tannins have all softened. Smooth all the way through, low acidity. Wine has lost a bit of its power and tasted slightly flat, but not to a fault. Medium bodied, but an abundance of flavor still there, long finish. Complex, a mixture of dark fruit and earth, very slight spice of cinnamon. A very good bottle. Have one left, will have to drink soon.

    1982 Bordeaux Retrospective at Age 25, 5/20/2007 95 points

    (Lynch Bages) The 1982 Lynch Bages (sourced from Chateau) was classic Lynch all the way. I think it caused Australian John to whisper ‘oy oy oy’ under is breath! The wine was big, dark and almost medieval with a dungeon-like complexity. Beef and minerals dominated the nose, with supporting nominations to soy, salt and animal. Its earthy palate was salty and spiny with that indoor cleaner, fresh edge that reminded me of the 1989. Australian John commented how this flight was ‘a step up’

    (Lynch Bages) This showed fantastically. Just pedal to the medal old-school Bordeaux love in a bottle. Great freshness and delineations. Loads of pencil lead, tobacco and wild flowers. Tremendous minerality and precision. Very well made wine.
