There is no question that Leoville Poyferre was not making wines at the level of quality they have since 1990. That said, the 1982 is a great wine, no doubt because of the vintage rather than the winemaking at that time. A brilliant effort, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a sweet, flowery bouquet revealing plenty of creme de cassis, plum, and cherry notes, stunning concentration, a boatload of power, sweet tannins (the sweetest and easiest to taste among the St.-Juliens), and a long finish. Although close to full maturity, it has at least 20-25 years of life remaining. Robert Parker

1982 vintage. Lighter, Burgundian body at this point. Exhibiting that mature, leathery earthy Bordeaux nose. A little raspberry and cherry still in the flavor profile that softens a medium-length finish. Subtle and pretty.
