  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 85

    Bright medium red. Aromatic nose of plum, redcurrant, spice cake and coffee. Smooth and silky, with good texture and concentration but a slightly intrusive green edge. Not bad.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Rich and delicious. Dark ruby-garnet color, with an amber rim. Loads of crushed berry character, with hints of new wood. Full-bodied and very chewy, with masses of fruit and a long, long finish. Drink now or hold.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal.

    Sweet, but quite light. Definitely nearing the end of its active life.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 79

    The last several times I tasted this wine it exhibited considerable dilution, seemed disjointed, and perhaps heat damaged. None of it came from my cellar. In the most recent tasting, the wine appeared at the end of its useful life. The color revealed considerable amber. The nose offered roasted herb notes but very little fruit. Perhaps this was not the finest example available, but earlier tastings have consistently revealed a light-bodied, uninspiring wine.

  • 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.
