96(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2002

($395-$788) Deep ruby-red. Boysenberry, cassis, toasty oak and bitter chocolate on the slightly dusty nose. Penetrating and powerful; quite dry but almost exotically ripe, with sappy berry flavors complicated by graphite and licorice notes. Finishes very tannic and very long, with a strongly spicy character. 94(+?). Second bottle: Medium ruby. Vibrant aromas of boysenberry, violet and licorice. Pure silk in the mouth, with great sappy verve. Hugely concentrated and compellingly sweet. Utterly spherical wine, finishing with outstanding mounting fruit. Drink now to 2030.

My First bottle was Heaven..then I bought a case..
My First bottle was Heaven..just pure velvet in the mouth..then I bought a wasn't bad, just wasn't as good..who knows where it's been.. I want to try the 90 Chateau Margaux..I hear it is one of the best.. anyway, the 82 is *very* nice, if you get a good provenance.
Damaged bottle
by Wilfried
TN Margaux, Margaux, Bordeaux, France, 1982 (single blind): Brown ruby, bit cloudy, high viscosity. Soy sauce, lovage, cooking spices. Medium body, tartish fruit, bit chemical. Finish tartish mouth impregnating. Score: 50 + 2 for optic + 13 for bouquet + 15 for taste + 6 for overall = total score of 86. This was a damaged bottle of suspect origin. Must have been stored for years standing on a shelf in a kitchen at "room" temperature
