Better than I anticipated. A sleek and racy wine.Ruby-amber color. Aromas of cedar, cigar box,tobacco, mint and mushrooms, with hints of redfruits, follow though to a medium body with finetannins and a long, silky finish. Excellent now... Wine Spectator

Guessed 89 left bank. Incredibly alive. Classic claret with acid, tannin still there, primary fruit . Wow.

Out of magnum. A bit disjointed, especially when we first opened it. It improved after about an hour. No need to hold on to it any longer.

This still has a lot of life in it. It was built to last, still really fresh and alive.

Really fun this one, brought in by a guest, wasn't expecting much, didn't decant, but it showed itself really well, dried dark berry fruit, quite indicative of Latour, really shows how amazing that terroir is, as the '82 is still the best of the 1st growths.
