Tasting Notes Pichon Baron 1982

92

This wine turned out much better than I expected. At a young age, it was somewhat disjointed and seemingly lacked acidity, but there is no doubting its level of concentration. It has firmed up and lost some of its baby fat, and now reveals plenty of sweet, smoky, leathery black currant fruit, a plush, opulent mouthfeel, and has reached full maturity. The color is starting to brick at the edge of the glass. This complex, rich 1982 is best consumed over the next 5-8 years. Release price: ($105.00/case)

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy's 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. For various reasons I have never been totally convinced by this Pichon Baron although I have to give credit where it is due, for this is the best bottle I have met. It has a mature, slightly leathery bouquet with touches of earth and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied, certainly not nearly as complex as its peers when examined side-by-side, whilst there is just a touch of VA towards the finish. I would be drinking bottles now. Tasted November 2012.
