    September 19, 2019 - This was my last bottle, and unfortunately it couldn't quite shift a slight whiff of the cork. It is still a very special wine, and on a good day probably only behind the 2003 in its quality. However, bottle variance has become a real issue with 1982 wines. I have given this a 97 the last 3 times out, but irrelevant of provenance, this has become a bit of a lottery.

    August 30, 2019 - The wine was served after a 1968 Giacosa Barbaresco which almost killed it with its agressive acidity. After 30 minutes these notes: Deep and classic Saint Estéphe aromas with leather, graphite, minerals etc. Massive mouth feeling, but mature and well rounded off.

    June 28, 2019 - Great aged appearance and well bricked with a very interesting nose upon immediate opening. Minerals, slight rotting veg, blackberry and rhubarb. The fruit is now slightly on the wane however, it is a very distinguished drink that shows its age in a classic Bordeaux way. Smooth, mouth filling and silky but still with fruit on the finish. Very excellent.
