    February 18, 2020 - The weakest showing for an 82 Pichon Comtesse yet, we followed this bottle for about 2 hours (in the glass) after uncorking. As usual, I liked the cassis and pencil composition, but it didn't hit the highs that 82 PCL usually does.

    February 3, 2020 - This too, along with the Cheval Blanc, is beginning to show signs of advanced age, but this is quite a bit more lively than the Cheval. Fruit still good, finish long, but its not the same wine as the last bottle was, or the other 22 from my stash. One bottle left, and hope it shows well.

    February 2, 2020 - This remains a ridiculously attractive wine. It envelopes your taste buds like a cloak, smothers you with love, thick rich ripe fruit, produce of an incredibly rich summer. Its there to please and please. What a wonderful wine this is. Its past its peak, as youth is fading but its still today nothing short of amazing.

    February 2, 2020 - If you have the disposable income or are lucky enough to have friends sitting on a bottle or two of this elixir, pop a cork. This is what mature Bordeaux at its best is all about. Elegant sensuous, balanced, complex, refined, regal, full, rich and deep, the fruit keeps on coming, building, expanding and pushing you to take another sip. But take your time as wine does not get much better than this.

    January 20, 2020 - Bordeaux 1982: not quite 40 years on (Chez Konstantina): Paired with the 1st growth of Château Margaux, this wine gave it more than just a good run. Such intensity of aromas, such depth and elegance on the palate, such length. I have enjoyed this wine before, luckily, and was expecting something special and last evening did not disappoint. The sheer pleasing complexity of oranges, Clafoutis baked cherry, Cuban cigar, hints of leather and floral aspects just kept leaping out of the glass and purring on the palate. Superb! Interestingly enough, prices for this wine are matching prices for the 1982 Margaux, tasted alongside, with a wonderful d'affinois cheese aux truffes ...

    (Pichon Lalande) A completely tertiary nose of grilled nuts and lots of truffles (white and black). Just crazy. There were also earth and mineral but those truffles were amazing. Great wine.
