Description

One of the most flamboyant, sensual wines of the vintage, it offers up a sweet bouquet of blackcurrants and blackberries mingled with notions of orange rind, violets, licorice and pipe tobacco. Full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with melting tannins, ripe acids and a long, cedar-inflected finish, it continues to deliver magical drinking. This may not prove to be the very longest-lived wine of the vintage, but its star certainly did burn bright! WA 100 pts.

Critic tasting note: "This is one of those "WOW" wines that if the bottle has been well-stored, never ceases to amaze me. Texturally, it is refined hedonism in the glass. Concentrated, lush, balanced, fresh, and intense, one sip, and you are hooked! The finish owns the day. Clocking in at over 60 seconds, the seamless display of black and red currants, plums, spice, tobacco, herbs, and mint leaf with its silky tannins and sensuality is what great Bordeaux is all about. Drink from 2022-2037." - 99/100, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider

100 Parker Points!

Wine Advocate # 183 Jun 2009 100 points
One of the monumental wines of the last century is the 1982 Pichon Lalande. Since bottling, it has flirted with perfection, and was a sprinter out of the gate, which gave rise to questions about how quickly it would begin its decline. However, at age 27, it retains all its glossy, rich, flamboyant cassis fruit, chocolaty, berry jam-like notes, and plenty of earthy, foresty flavors. This is a full-bodied, extravagantly rich Pichon Lalande seemingly devoid of acidity and tannin, but the wine is incredibly well-balanced and pure. It is an amazing effort!
