I have had perfect bottles of this cuvee but perplexingly the bottles from my cellar tend to be broodingly backward and require plenty of coaxing. This huge wine is in many ways just as massive as Leoville Barton but it possesses a greater degree of elegance as well as unreal concentration. Classic lead pencil cassis kirsch cedar and spice characteristics are abundant in both the nose and full-bodied flavors. The tannins are still there and at least from my cellar this 1982 does not appear to have changed much in the last 10-12 years. One wonders how much patience admirers of this brilliant St.-Julien will continue to exhibit. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050. 95+

Thick sweet and deep; still young but in a gentler lower-acid style than either the '86 or '96. Still this boasts sneaky intensity and wonderful persistence. Tannins are substantial but thoroughly ripe. Drink 2004 through 2025.
