"This was one of the best showings yet for this wine, which, to my palate and mind, has never lived up to its early potential. In this tasting, the 1982 revealed a healthy dark ruby color with lightening at the edge. Intense, persistent aromas of saddle leather, roasted herbs, scorched earth, and sweet black currant fruit were followed by complex flavors of minerals, spice box, and cedar. Although this medium-bodied, fleshy, ripe, concentrated wine is not a blockbuster, as it unfolds, it reveals layers of flavor in addition to this vineyard's tell-tale complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2020." Robert Parker 94, June 2000

"How can you escape from the brilliance of this Haut-Brion? Even amongst esteemed company the quality of this wine shone through and represents probably my finest encounter with this wine. A stunning nose of black olive, tobacco, tar and fig with awe-inspiring freshness and delineation. The palate is beautifully balance, much less conservative than I recall with a supremely well-focused finish of tobacco infused blackberry, smoke and cigar box. Very long and simply delicious to consume and then reflect upon. Tasted February 2008." Neal Martin 97, February, 2008
