International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 103

($160-$275) Full medium red. Spicy aromas of redcurrant, strawberry and plum. Ripe, lush and gentle, with a mineral character contributing to the wine impression of structure and leavening the wine's sweetness. Very long, ripely tannic finish shows slightly elevated alcohol but comes across as firm nonetheless. (A second sample showed aromas of currant, tobacco, coconut and menthol and seemed tighter, even a bit harder, in the middle palate, with a similarly firm structure; I scored this sample 93(+?))

Magnum. Pretty dark ruby. Very heady perfumed and complex on the nose. Some graphite. But very lifted too. Something a little Lafite-like. Lovely mellow perfectly mature gentle stuff. Very fine boned and complete. Classic claret. Lovely finish. Not a hint of tannin, nothing out of place. Dry but not drying finish. Unusually 'feminine' for a Cos. For me the wine that was the most delightful of all to drink now.

A spectacular performance for this wine, Cos d'Estournel's 1982 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color with light pink at the rim. Sweet aromas of jammy black fruits intermixed with roasted espresso and vanillin jump from the glass of this young, concentrated, full-bodied, succulent effort. An opulent texture, low acidity, and splendidly pure, concentrated, blackberry and cassis fruit suggest this 1982 can be drunk now, or cellared for another 15-20 years. An awesome wine!

Built for aging. Very dark ruby in color, with a garnet rim. Dried flower and berry aromas. Full-bodied and very solid, with masses of fruit and tannins. Still has plenty of time to go.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal.

Intensely dark with a murky dull reflection. The nose is powerful, intense aromas of over-ripe fruit, plum compote, rhubarb jam and black cherry. Magnificent purity, huge fruit character, mild tannin and refreshing acidity. Beautiful, opulent mouthfeel with loads of glycerol leading into a long finish. This wine is drinking like its ten years old. This will continue to improve for many years to come.

Decanted for 2 hours, rinsed out bottle, refilled and brought to dinner. Would not believe this wine is 31 years old. A fabulous clean nose of beautiful fresh berries, wonderful mouthfeel with beautiful soft well integrated tannins and a long smooth and delicious finish. Will drink well for many years to come. Unfortunately it is my last bottle. Fabulous wine.
