In 2018, this is tremendous, with the gap between it and the 1983 ever-widening. Multi-layered Cabernet complexity and depth at every turn, with all the richness of sumptuous black fruit on great terroir. The texture combines refinement with all-enveloping, wrap-around warmth, still full of life and vibrancy. First Growth 1982s reign supreme, as ever. In 2020 and from magnum, this has further expanded and gained in richness and spiciness to an amazing extent - a long-distance runner of immense class and presence. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
