Bahans Haut Brion 1982

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

In the case of Haut-Brion, under the great stewardship of the Pontac family the wine's reputation was for years represented by the name of this enlightened and well respected family-- Pontac wine. Eventually as its renown grew, the name of the Estate came to replace that of its owners. The notion of a Great Growth was born! We find the first written mention of the wine in the Diaries of Samuel Pepys. While visiting the Royal Oak Tavern in London on April 10, 1663 Pepys wrote "There I drank a sort of French wine called Ho-Bryan (sic) which hath a good and most particular taste which I never before encountered....."

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.
