Vieux Château Certan Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 1982 (1500ml)

$865

...This is the best bottle of VCC 1982 that I have encountered. The reason is that you can feel that three grape varieties all working together to create a multi-faceted Pomerol that is really coming into its own. It has a wondrous bouquet that is very savoury with meaty notes, Asian spice and a touch of bitter chocolate, all with outstanding definition. The palate follows suit with supremely expressive Cabernet Franc that lends the 1982 so much character, a part of its personality that was less pronounced a few years ago. There are lovely saddle-leather, animally notes infusing the dark berry fruit with a hint of sage and heather on the grainy finish... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

One of the most unexpectedly moving bottles of my life. Was prepared for concentration, liquor-like extraction, Parkerized glycerol & nonsense—“great” wine in quotation marks. Instead? I got a ballet dancer. Smoky, haunting, perfumed, & one of the more wonder-inducing bottles of Bordueax I've ever tasted.

Youthful 82 love the vinegar and I love pomerol. Makes a great combination for me to appreciate this wine. Lots of acid and fruit. Amazing color for a 34 year old
