    ($85) Moderately saturated medium red. Aromatic nose of leather, coffee grounds and current leaf, with a distinct green component. Then firm but a bit hollow, with a sour quality and a green edge on the end. Avoids hardness but gives little pleasure.

    Healthy, bright crimson. Very fresh and beguiling. Absolutely fresh-scrubbed; no make-up. Lovely delicacy. Complete nose. All bases covered. Is this the 1978? Not an attention grabber but absolutely perfect Dom de Chev. Quite long. This wine perfectly expresses the place. Interesting that, unusually, it didn't sing out 1982.although this was always an unusual wine, frost-shrunk.

    Medium ruby with amber at the edge, this wine offers up vegetal, green aromas intertwined with scents of minerals, toasty new oak, and washed-out red currant fruit. Thin, sharp, attenuated, and drying out, Domaine de Chevalier's 1982 is a failure for the vintage.

    Slightly rustic, but with a good concentration of ripe fruit. Brick-red color, with a ruby center. Medium- to full-bodied, with ripe berry and tobacco aromas, rather coarse yet velvety tannins and a slightly funky aftertaste.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal.

    Bright red to the rim, looking youthful with no browning. Nose of berries and earth. Entry of intense berries slight graves earth. Good lift and fine tannins, although not harsh or very noticable. Taste like a young wine with moderate finish, slightly jammy. The product of whole cluster firmentation, has the character of a young wine. fine.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
