    Chateau Branaire Ducru 1982
    St. Estephe
    4bn, 5lbsl, 3wisl, 1sos, owc
    Bottle (12)
    "The 1982 is still 5-8 years away from full maturity, but it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/garnet color to the rim as well as a sweet perfume of forest floor, spice box, cedar, and copious quantities of black fruits. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully pure with sweet tannins, this wine has aged more slowly than I initially expected. " (96pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)

    "A strong effort for this estate, the 1982 exhibits sweet aromas of plums, licorice, earth, and flowers. The tannins are slightly rustic, but the sweetness of the fruit, the broad expansive mouthfeel, and the wine’s full maturity represent a classic Bordeaux at the top of its game." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)
