Tasting of 1/3/2010 ... Suffered slightly against a terrific 1982 Leoville Las Cases, but still a sensational Bordeaux. Softer and jammier than in the 2008 tasting, with super-ripe strawberry notes added onto the spicy cassis, plum, and tobacco undercarriage. Lots of cedar in this latest tasting, not quite as youthful and structured this time around. Rating: 92. Tasting of 1/5/2008 ... Our favorite among a recent tasting of 1982 Bordeaux. Very aromatic, forward, assertive nose of smoky, minty cassis and super-ripe fruit along with a boatload of spiciness. Fresh and delicious in the mouth, showing dark currants and plums with a hint of prunes. Memorable wine. Rating: 93.

Intense aromas of kirsch, currant and spice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is complex, changing on the nose and palate. Layered and structured. Will improve for many years to come.--N... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1982 Montrose 750ml

The 1982 is nowhere near the quality of some of the Montroses made afterwards (1989, 1990, 1996, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2008), but it has aged better than expected having developed more complexity and richness than barrel samples suggested. Sweet kirsch, black currant, crushed rock, and floral notes are followed by a full-bodied, opulent, fleshy wine displaying no hard edges. It still possesses beautifully pure fruit as well as good body, but it should be consumed over the next 5-8 years
