1982 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac
Top Pick!
100 points James Suckling: "What an amazing red. It's so very youthful with toasted oak, light vanilla, and dark berries such as currants and blueberries. Then it turns to mint. This is so fresh and intensely fruity. It lasts for minutes on your palate with each sip. It is so powerful yet elegant. It will improve for hundreds of years. I would still leave it in my cellar for five or ten years. If you need to drink it, decant it three to four hours in advance." (11/2010) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine remains one of the legends of ...

100 points Decanter: "May Eliane de Lencquesaing had been at Pichon since 1978, so four years by the time the 1982 rolled around. The Merlot levels are a little higher than they are today (it was a favourite grape of her father's), but this flamboyant, fleshy style is exotic in all the right places. In fact it jumps out of the glass, with its caramel-edged sweet black fruits. The aromatics are still full-on wow, the fruits and tannins melded perfectly together. It's been two years since I last tasted this wine, and it was every bit as good back then. Har...

This sought-after rosé Champagne is from a fine vintage has had many fine showings in recent years. Fine bottles like this are so rarely are given the opportunity to age to full maturity when 30 years of celebrations have repeatedly place them in peril.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 1982 is still displaying a beautiful deep ruby/purple hue as well as a stunning set of aromatics consisting of blue and black fruits, loamy earth, flowers, licorice, and spice box. The wine is medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a silky finish. It appears to have hit full maturity, but it can easily be held in a cold cellar for another 10+ years. (RP)" (06/2009) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Built for aging. Very dark ruby in color, with a garnet rim. Dried flower ...

95 points James Suckling: "This shows intense aromas of mint, lead pencil and currants that follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a finish with tension and freshness. " (10/2012) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This vintage was a modern benchmark for the estate. Intense aromas and flavors of berry, currant, mint and light toasty oak. Full, round and refined, with a long, long finish. Gorgeous. Drinking beautifully. (JS, Web Only-2007)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautifully mature with sweet, sun-drenched black currant, fig...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A massive wine that is clearly of first-growth quality in this vintage, the 1982 Gruaud Larose remains a youngster. A broodingly dense, thick, unctuously textured, inky/plum/garnet/purple color offers up scents of beef blood, steak tartare, cassis, herbs, tobacco, and underbrush. One of the most concentrated wines of the vintage (as well as one of the most concentrated Bordeaux’s I have ever tasted), it is a huge, full-bodied, weighty, rich wine whose tannins are getting silkier and silkier. It appears set for an...

96 points Decanter: "Again, the iron filings and bloody flesh of an older Cabernet. This has a little more force but a little less grace than some others in the line-up. It is a beautiful wine with stunning concentration, but I miss some lift through the body. Still incredible integrity of colour, these wines have got decades left in them. Wild strawberries, ripe figs and damsons on the palate, the tannins do soften with coaxing in the glass, revealing some cigar box and leather aromatics. (JA)" 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This huge wine i...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish. Although clo...

96 points John Gilman: "The bouquet is unmistakably Cheval, with scents of black cherries, bell pepper, dark chocolate, menthol, tobacco, herbs, espresso and vanillin oak wafting from the glass. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep, black fruity, and totally dense at the center, with excellent structure and delineation, great length and grip, and a fair bit of ripe, well-integrated tannin framing the finish. This is very elegant and only medium-full on the palate today (in notable contrast to its thick, luxurious and voluptuous youth), with great ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have had perfect bottles of this cuvee, but, perplexingly, the bottles from my cellar tend to be broodingly backward and require plenty of coaxing. This huge wine is, in many ways, just as massive as Leoville Barton, but it possesses a greater degree of elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil, cassis, kirsch, cedar, and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there, and, at least from my cellar, this 1982 does not appear to have ch...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...Medium ruby, with an attractive bouquet of vanillin oakiness and ripe, herb-scented, berry fruit, this medium-bodied wine has a forward, precocious, rich, supple fruitiness that caresses the palate. (RP)" (01/1998) Wine Spectator: "Medium-red in color, with a garnet hue. Cherry, fresh mushroom and leaves on the nose. Medium-bodied." (11/1998)
Price: $199.99

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Latour-à-Pomerol vertical in London. The 1982 Latour-à-Pomerol has been a great wine for many years and this might well be the best that I have ever encountered. It has an exceptional bouquet that here is surprisingly youthful. It comes armed with black fruit, bay leaf, cedar and gravel, almost Left Bank in character. Further investigation yields an intriguing marine-like, seaweed scent that expands upon its engaging personality. The palate is medium-bodied with wonderful balance and fine tannin. It...

91 points Wine Spectator: "A concentrated, delicious wine. Ruby-colored, with an amber hue. Plenty of chocolate, ripe fruit and seashells on the nose. Full-bodied and very ripe, with velvety tannins and lots of chocolate, berry and tobacco flavors. Long finish." (11/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Very, very deep crimson. Low-key nose. Thick. Stern. Dry. Mass rather than charm, but a stout effort and a slow developer. Drink 2005-2015." (09/2005)
