    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    An extraordinary Margaux. Certainly the 1982 has a magnificent bouquet of creamy, toasty, smoky oak and ripe berries in addition to an exotic, almost oriental spice character to the perfume that gives it great individuality. In the mouth, the wine is fabulously concentrated, rich, and extremely soft, but at the same time very tannic, although the tannins are supple even silky. The wine has a finish that must last for several minutes. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025.

    Wine Spectator

    Deep ruby-red. Boysenberry, cassis, toasty oak and bitter chocolate on the slightly dusty nose. Penetrating and powerful; quite dry but almost exotically ripe, with sappy berry flavors complicated by graphite and licorice notes. Finishes very tannic and very long, with a strongly spicy character. 94(+?). Second bottle: Medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, violet and licorice. Pure silk in the mouth, with great sappy verve. Hugely concentrated and compellingly sweet. Utterly spherical wine, finishing with outstanding mounting fruit. Drink now to 2030.
