Very mineral, dark and somehow desnse...with such characteristic aroma of crush/wet stones, mineral and undercover black fruits....this is still very young considering is a '82 and could lasts 10-15 years more easily. This is a style of wine very unique specially for a right bank Bordeaux due to its high C.S. % but have a lot of fans of such unique style and aristocracy.

Let breathe for 2 hours. Nose of cedar, smoke, leather, dried herbs, dark fruit and spice. In the mouth, it has extraordinary complexity, elegance and balance. Rich fruit and leather combined perfectly. We love this wine. show no sign of age
