Bahans Haut Brion 1982
Superb weather conditions produced a great wine form a very large crop. The colour is still deep and youthful and the nose is almost baked or grilled as a consequence of the intense heat at vintage time. It is sweet and supple on the palate with fabulously ripe tannins, which will keep the wine for another for another 20 years.
thoroughly blissful experience is drinking this wine, as can be expected of most bordeaux of this caliber and depth of aging. deep, dense, dark fruits and herbs. smoky, oaky, and complex. bold in its power, yet long and balanced in its delivery, this was the highlight of the holiday fare thus far this year.
