Description:

Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 1982
Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe
u: all bottom neck or better, five labels unattached, four partially unattached, all with bin soil and label discoloration

"This is a tour de force, and one of the all-time great Grand-Puy-Lacostes ever produced, as I hope the 2000 and 2005 will become. This is an inky/purple, beefy, broad, super-rich Pauillac revealing classic creme de cassis notes intermixed with hints of spring flowers and crushed rocks. Full-bodied with sweet tannin, shocking concentration, and layers of fruit, this irresistible 1982 is still an adolescent in terms of its evolution. Anticipated maturity: now-2035." R. Parker, 96 pts. 06/09
12 bottles
