Don’t understand this wine. Dinner of 10, no one was impressed. Don’t think this is a bottle with decades ahead.

This was a solid one, not much fruit left, but the aromatics were extremely lifted & high toned.

This was one of the 82 Bdx that we had vs. the 78 Napa's. Honestly, and I'm a little shocked to be saying this, but it didn't hold a candle to any of the Napa wines. Not sure if the bottle underperformed or what, and it was double decanted and allowed to open, but just stayed lean and sharp. Lacking of fruit.

Gorgeous example of this wine. Wonderfully expressive and aromatic. Perfectly mature but on the plateau with no signs of falling off of it.

Just stupid perfect in every way. Potentially the best wine I've ever tasted.

1982 Lafite living up to its reputation. Elegance amid concentrated fruit, with the requisite tobacco, cedar, and lead pencil notes everyone said are supposed to be there. The real deal, benchmark Bordeaux, benchmark wine...

Pretty, elegant, flashy - perfection? No. Delicious anyway.
