Tasting Notes Palmer 1982

90

Other than Chateau Margaux, the 1982 Palmer is the strongest wine from what was the weakest appellation of the vintage, Margaux. Keep in mind that today, the classified-growth Margaux estates are all making fine wines (Brane-Cantenac, Malescot St.-Exupery, d'Issan, etc.), but when the 1982 was conceived, most of these properties made mediocre wines. Palmer, which seemed very loosely structured, and lacking concentration as well as tannin when it was first tasted, has firmed up, put on some weight, and reveals a slightly rustic edge. It possesses a deep garnet color to the rim along with plenty of sweet black fruit, charcoal, herb, and licorice characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, flavorful, and surprisingly well-endowed, it should drink nicely for another 10-15 years. Release price: ($275.00/case)

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy's 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. At thirty years of age, the Palmer 1982 still remains in the shadow of the 1983, although this is one of the best bottles that I have encountered. Yes, it remains a little fatigued on the nose but it is harmonious and nicely defined with that tincture of brine amongst the undergrowth. The palate is medium bodied and missing a little cohesion with age. But there is a pleasant sweet decayed core with a simple but fresh finish that would benefit from more vigour and persistency. Tasted November 2012.
