Description:

*Chateau Beychevelle1982
St. Julien, 4eme Cru Classe u. excellent levels, one slight label smudge
"This is the finest Beychevelle produced over the last forty years. It reveals the estate's tell-tale elegance in addition to a level of density, muscle, and richness that is rarely found in more recent vintages. A dense ruby/garnet color is followed by a classy nose of black fruits, licorice, minerals, and toast. Ripe, sweet, and thick, with low acidity, medium to full body, impressive richness, light to moderate tannin, and a long finish, this wine is just entering its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for 12-15 years." R. Parker, 92 pts. 06/02 2 bottles
Estimate $250-350
