CHATEAU CHEVAL BLANC 1982
Château Cheval Blanc 1982
St. Emilion, 1er Grand Cru Classé (A)
u. 5bn, 2vts, excellent color and clarity, 2 very slightly scuffed capsules otherwise good general appearance for its age

Vintage from 20 September to 2 October. An astonishing 54 hl/hectare made - 160,000 bottles of 1982 were produced when the average is 90-100 ,000. And this in a drought year! The crop was so healthy that no sorting was necessary. 12.8% alcohol - somewhat surprising in today's context. In 2011, quite a meaty nose, spices and soy sauce. Really big tannic structure on the palate, with leather and coffee and a rich, liqueur finish. Great with pork buns! In 2013, a bit closed, just thinking about its very long future life!
