Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 93 A strong effort for this estate, the 1982 exhibits sweet aromas of plums, licorice, earth, and flowers. The tannins are slightly rustic, but the sweetness of the fruit, the broad expansive mouthfeel, and the wines full maturity represent a classic Bordeaux at the top of its game. Enjoy it over the next 5-8 years. (Wine Advocate # 183 Jun 2009)
