Château Beychevelle Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

$395

...has been consistently scoring in the 94-96 point range. Beautifully sweet, slightly herbaceous black currant, licorice, and earthy notes emerge from this nearly opaque, dark ruby/purple-tinged 1982. Compared to the more elegant, feminine-styled wine often produced here, it is a beast. Dense, thick, rich, concentrated, and impressive, it can be drunk now and over the next two decades.

This is special. Roasted green pepper to roasted poblano with some tobacco and wet earth.

Crushed seashell/ocean and pencil on the nose. Very secondary decomposing earthy palate with little fruit beyond blackberry seed. My daughter highlighted Soy Sauce on the nose as well...the padawan learns quick.
