Reviews for 1982 Calon Segur Bordeaux Blend

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2009
Like Certan de May, I bought this in both half and 750 ml bottles. Only recently have the half bottles reached full maturity, and the 750 ml remains a massive, backward wine for long-term aging. A dense, opaque garnet... Like Certan de May, I bought this in both half and 750 ml bottles. Only recently have the half bottles reached full maturity, and the 750 ml remains a massive, backward wine for long-term aging. A dense, opaque garnet color is followed by notes of roasted meats, herbs, black currants, incense, and damp earth. Full-bodied, still extremely tannic (sweet but noticeable tannins), rich, and backward, where perfectly stored, this 1982 will last for another 50 years. The estate has always compared it to their 1947, which is still a vibrant wine, and the 1982 should be just as profound. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040. 94+ - Robert Parker

Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2002
Good medium red with a hint of amber at the rim. Very aromatic inviting nose of redcurrant leather and tobacco. Intensely flavored and gripping with a slightly raisiny singed plum character but also solid framing acidity... Good medium red with a hint of amber at the rim. Very aromatic inviting nose of redcurrant leather and tobacco. Intensely flavored and gripping with a slightly raisiny singed plum character but also solid framing acidity that gives the wine a juicy quality. Quite fat and full. Finishes with superb structure and grip. (A second rather different bottle of equal quality showed cherry currant licorice and menthol aromas; a dense backward palate impression; and lovely restrained sweetness and a note of spice cake on the youthfully firm finish.)

Very deep crimson with some evolution. Gentle, big, bloody start and then quite rustic fruit. Chewy finish. 17/20
