1982 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

SKU #950278 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Red-ruby. Highly aromatic nose of raspberry, redcurrant, graphite, licorice and cedar. Leanish, dry and classic, with firm acidity but less flesh than the '96. Lovely traditionally made claret, with terrific finesse and grip. Still evolving. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (8/2002)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With massive, huge concentration, excruciating tannin, this earthy, meaty St.-Julien has everything, but it needs to be forgotten for at least 10-15 years. At this tasting, it did not appear to have budged since the last time I had it, and it did not taste terribly different than it did at age five. While it is remarkably concentrated, it is hard to rate it any higher because it may take another 25 years to reach maturity. Even with this level of concentration, one can never be sure if the fruit will hold. Nevertheless, I have plenty of confidence in it. (RP) 90+ Inner quote mark (6/2009)

K&L Notes

91 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. This vintage of Leoville Barton can be a little variable from bottle to bottle, although this is definitely one of the better examples that I have encountered. It has a very elegant, very 'classic' bouquet with leafy black autumnal fruit, sandalwood, tobacco and a citric edge. The palate is vibrant and not overly complex with superb tension. This is so fresh and pretty, perhaps cutting away a little too swiftly on the finish, but you are satisfied by then." (01/2013)
