($112-$130) Bright medium ruby. Refined, floral aromas of black- and redcurrant, minerals and graphite; at once very ripe and subdued. Juicy, precise and penetrating; not hugely fleshy but stylish and elegant. Finishes with lovely grip and clarity. Nicely understated for the vintage.

Restrained on the nose, then becoming more exotic. Ripeness and freshness embrace. Utterly smooth and still going strong. Surprisingly dense but also has charm and elegance. Wonderful. (JH)

The 1982 Leoville-Poyferre possesses great concentration, full body as well as considerable structure. A dense purple/plum color reveals some lightening at the rim. Terrific concentration hits the palate with mouth-searing levels of tannin. Full-bodied, thick, structured, muscular, and loaded with potential, this 1982 requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It should age effortlessly for another 25-30 years. Patience is required.

A gorgeous wine, and still holding back. A beautiful, perfumed red, with cherry, floral aromas. Full-bodied, very velvety, with a lot of fruit and a lovely structure. Will improve.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal.

Part of a blind tasting of Leoville Poyferre, Barton and Las Cases, 1982, 1990, 1996 and 2000 with Acker. This was the least exciting wine of the flight. Ripe, bit not powerful, stylish but not full bodied
