This shows wonderful finesse. Brick red in color, with a garnet edge. Lovely perfumed aromas of blackberry and chocolate, with a hint of raisin. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, sweet fruit finish. Drink now or hold. Wine Spectator

Fantastic to see this beauty still rocking along. Could have another 5-8 years but lucky to enjoy it with friends

About as perfect as middle-term, pedigreed Bordeaux gets. None of the overblown fruit problems that characterize the vintage here. Just 100% sexy old-school Bordeaux. Reliable, dependable, and still (kind of) affordable at $325 in a Times Square restaurant.

1982 Brane Cantenac. Fun, but couldn't stand up to the 84 from Spring Mountain.

A ridiculous amount of fruit remains intact here. A ton of secondary truffle & savory character shows. The vibrant nature is shocking in every good way. I modestly would say that I've been lucky enough to taste quite a few 82's and this is among the best ones.

With a rib eye. Took a while and old school, but delightful Christmas Eve

What an elegant wine. This #chateaubranecantenac had incredible complexity and balance. All the notes showed as a classic #grandcruclasse #bordeaux. The fruit was sweet, the structure was finessed, and the length was great. #medoc #margaux #cabernetsaugvinon #blend #ctbucklinwine

Could have been better given the vintage but still a well made wine with plenty of gas in the tank. I always find Margaux sweeter than must left banks and thus chateau is no exception.

O M G. This 1982 is showing beautifully. It's still got a little fruit, tannins, and a wonderful finish. Mahalo Carl!
