The 1982 Leoville-Poyferre possesses great concentration, full body as well as considerable structure. A dense purple/plum color reveals some lightening at the rim. Terrific concentration hits the palate with mouth-searing levels of tannin. Full-bodied, thick, structured, muscular, and loaded with potential, this 1982 requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It should age effortlessly for another 25-30 years. Patience is required.

There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker awards this fine wine 95 points and writes: "There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish. Although close to full maturity, it has at least 20-25 years of life remaining."
