"This amazing cru bourgeois estate produced a 1982 that remains young and vibrant with little sign of evolution. Even from half bottles, the wine exhibits a saturated dark purple color with no lightening at the edge. The nose could be that of a 1990, revealing exuberant, pure, ripe blackcurrant aromas intermixed with scents of minerals and spices. Full-bodied, with high extraction, copious quantities of glycerin, and huge tannin, this is a young, backward, impressively-endowed Sociando-Mallet that may prove to be one of the slowest agers of the vintage. Give this classic wine another 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it through the first two decades of the next century. Tasted 15 times since bottling with consistent notes." RP 92
