1982 Saint Pierre, St-Julien
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full ruby-red. Slightly gamey, sweet aromas of cassis, leather, minerals and bitter chocolate; shows a faintly candied quality. Full, silky and a bit roasted; offers classic 1982 breadth, opulence and sweetness but could use a bit more delineation and elegance. Still, an impressive showing.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Fully mature, the 1982 has a dark garnet color with some amber creeping in at the edge. The wine offers up a big, smoky nose with licorice, cigar box, cedar, and sweet cherry and black currant fruit. The wine is lush, medium to full-bodied, low in acidity, and very expansive and user-friendly. (RP-Bordeaux Book)
A very ripe wine. Dark ruby-garnet color, with an inky center. Floral and berry character and a long, slightly raisiny finish. Drink now or hold.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal.
