u.6bn or level into neck, 4vts, 1ts, 1h/ms, slightly damp-stained labels, 5 slightly torn capsules, scuffed capsules, ex Zachys with Christie's

Label Artist: John Huston

In 2019, this is as great as ever, perfect now in bottle, but try and wait a bit in magnum.  Deep black fruit characterises the bouquet, cigar-rich and opulent. In the mouth, there is dense, welcoming texture plus ripe, yet still fresh, flavour that just swarms over the palate. Huge and enveloping, exciting and satisfying. This is classic Mouton from a vintage that miraculously combined fabulous quality with quantity.

WA 100[TASTER:PARKER]This wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. Ithas... developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. Thecreme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power,extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minuteare a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine isstill amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable ofremaining fruity and vibrant in 2082!... on occasion, one doesunderstand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see thecomplexity and brilliance of this first-growth.
