1982 Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol

SKU #950420

96 points Robert Parker: "The few critics that Michel Rolland still has need to taste this wine to understand a wine that was fabulous to drink young, yet at age 27 continues to perform incredibly well. A classic Pomerol, it boasts a dark garnet color with only slight lightening at the edge as well as sensational aromas of creme brulee, chocolate-covered black cherries and currants, figs, and plums, full-bodied, powerful, rich flavors, and tremendous purity, opulence, and length. I thought this 1982 would be in its grave a decade ago, but it continues to show just what great balance and length can mean in Bordeaux. It should drink well for another 10 years." (06/09) 91 points Stephen Tanzer: "Full, deep red. Inviting aromas of plum, brown sugar, roasted game, caramel, nutmeg and burnished oak. Sweet, lush and smooth, with the chewy, opulent texture of the vintage best examples. Offers an almost candied ripeness but maintains its shape. A large-scaled Pomerol that finishes with substantial but thoroughly ripe tannins." (Jul/Aug 02)

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
