1982 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux - 100 pts!
I have had this wine a half-dozen times over the last eleven months and have rated it either 98 99 or 100 on every occasion. It is a fully mature sumptuous gloriously perfumed luxuriously rich Pauillac the likes of which are rarely encountered. The color is a dark plum/ruby with amber at the edge. Spectacular aromatics offer up cedar smoke jammy black and red fruits minerals licorice and toast. Unctuously-textured and full-bodied with low acidity fabulously sweet rich fruit surprising definition for a wine of such lushness and intensity this is one of the vintage's most compelling and profound efforts. It has been delicious since birth but absolutely stupendous over the last decade. How much longer can it hold onto its magic? My guess is that it should be consumed over the next 5-7 years. RP
