Tasting Notes Vieux Ch. Certan 1982

96

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy's 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. This is the best bottle of VCC 1982 that I have encountered. The reason is that you can feel that three grape varieties all working together to create a multi-faceted Pomerol that is really coming into its own. It has a wondrous bouquet that is very savoury with meaty notes, Asian spice and a touch of bitter chocolate, all with outstanding definition. The palate follows suit with supremely expressive Cabernet Franc that lends the 1982 so much character, a part of its personality that was less pronounced a few years ago. There are lovely saddle-leather, animally notes infusing the dark berry fruit with a hint of sage and heather on the grainy finish. Maybe this VCC is improving as it enters its fourth decade? Tasted November 2012.

Not yet fully mature, this wine reveals some amber at the edge as well as a complex, intoxicating nose of cedar, licorice, spice box, black currants, and cherries. While medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, and beautiful concentration, it appears to me that more recent vintages are stronger and denser than the 1982. Nevertheless, it is a beauty that can be drunk now and over the next 15-16 years. Release price: ($175.00/case)
