Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 points

Unquestionably the greatest La Lagune until the 2005 was conceived, the 1982 exhibits a dense ruby/purple-tinged color along with a big, sweet bouquet of black cherries, licorice, smoky toast, and forest floor, a plush, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and sweet tannin. It is close to full maturity, and should keep for another decade. Release price: ($65.00/case)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 91 points

Good red-ruby color. Expressive, slightly funky, Burgundian aromas of red raspberry, redcurrant, cherry, smoked meat, coffee and earth. At once dense and penetrating rich but uncompromisingly dry, with lovely clarity of flavor. Long, resounding finish offers excellent grip. A superb vintage for this chateau. (A second sample showed somewhat more candied aromas of cherry, red fruits, leather and smoked meat a lush, sweet palate, and considerable inner-mouth flavor nicely framed by ripe acids. I gave this very likable bottle the same score of 91.) Drink now to 2015.

Very dark garnet-red, with an inky center. Ripe berry and tobacco aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with tobacco, raspberry and light toasted oak flavors. Silky finish. Outstanding, if not quite as impressive as I anticipated.--1982 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. ?JS
