Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982 Bordeaux Pauillac

Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1982 Bordeaux Pauillac

Another once in a lifetime wine!


Wine Advocate, Robert Parker, 97+Pts, Jun. 2009:

"This is a denser version of the 1990 that stylistically reminds me of what the young 1959 probably tasted like. Still backward with a deep ruby/plum color revealing only a touch of lightening at the edge, the wine offers up an extraordinary nose of caramelized herbs, smoke, cedar, pen ink, black currants, and earth. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, plump, rich, fleshy wine with low acidity. With 6-8 hours decanting in a closed decanter, it will offer beautiful drinking, but it needs another 5-8 years to reach full maturity. It is capable of lasting 50-60 years. This classic Lafite is not as fat and concentrated as the 1982 Latour, nor as complex or concentrated as the 1982 Mouton Rothschild, but it is a winner all the same."


All our vintage wines are sold as-is. While we provide a guarantee that the wines we resell were taken out of temperature controlled cellar and have been kept in our temperature controlled cellar since we acquired them, we cannot guarantee anything else and you are buying at your own risk.
