  • I wasn't the biggest fan of this wine this evening. Difficult to say whether bottle condition or just the tough competition of the other '82s. Raspberry, honeysuckle, musty and sweet spice, light vanilla and white pepper. Palate has elements of the same with darker fruit and notes of black pepper but overall falls short with a slightly bitter back.

  • 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.

  • Det här vinet visar verkligen hur exceptionell årgång 1982 var i Bordeaux. Det har verkligen alla de egenskaper man känner igen från 1982. En helt underbar och mogen doft av söt mogen frukt, häststall, höstskog, läder, cigarrlåda, piptobak, svamp och en dammig, stenig mineralitet.
    Fortfarande en otrolig spänst och fräschör trots de mogna tonerna och en helt underbar balans och längd. Jag förstår inte hur Bordeaux kan anses omodernt av många. De har troligtvis inte haft förmånen att dricka riktigt bra och mogen Bordeaux. Detta är en excellent flaska som har förvarats perfekt alla år. Satan va gott!!! Och det håller många år ännu.

    This is a wine to have and just sit and sniff a little bit. Taste it and sniff. Brilliant this can hardly get any better.

  • 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.

    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.
