1982 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: 1982 was a good Port Vintage, with elegant and aromatic wines. Declared by a few houses, but most made Quinta wines.

 
Italian: 1982 was a tremendous wine vintage for big, rich and fruity Barolo and Barbaresco. The grapes were in superb condition for an early harvest and, thanks to the wonderful summer, the crop was large as well as very healthy. Wines from Tuscany(Chianti and Brunello) were also in fine form producing ripe, flavoursome, well-balanced wines.
 
Bordeaux: The 1982 wine vintage was an outstanding one that produced some of the most complex profound wines since 1961. Great weather made this vintage a successful one. Harvests were boosted by a September heat-wave, the result of which was super-ripe grapes, both in respect of sugar content and physiology. The lesser wines from the St Emillion, Graves, Pomerol and Margaux regions are now fully mature. The heavyweight wines from these regions and St Julien, Pauillac are evolving slowly and will continue to do so.

 
Champagne: 1982 is an exceptionally fine, rich vintage for Champagne. Ideal weather conditions in 1982 led to a good vintage, a relief after a disappointing run. A cold and frosty winter gave way to a coolish spring, but temperatures picked up later in the season. The flowering conditions in June were ideal, and summer was sunny and dry. The grapes were ripe by relatively early on in September, and showers mid-month helped them achieve near-perfection. The crop was one of the largest on record.

Chateau Malescot St-Exupery, 1982

Margaux 3me Cru Classe

Deep garnet hue turning mahogany. A ripe nose: raspberry, cooked meat and leather. Quite intense though it tails off in the glass. The palate is better than expected. Medium-bodied, nice balance though lacking any Margaux typicity (this more like a Saint Julien.) Irony. Pretty yet simple. Clean finish though herbaceous. To my great surprise, the wine improved the following day, becoming more harmonious and cohesive. Perhaps decanting and letting this wine rest is advisable. Fine, but drink now.

Chateau Pichon-Longueville, Baron, 1982

Pauillac, 2me Cru Classe

** 92/100 Parker **

"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" Parker, Wine Advocate, 2009.

The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

Dom Perignon, 1982

Champagne

*** 96 Points Robert Parker ***

"Dark gold in color with a slow stream (I don't know if I would even characterize it as a stream) of tiny bubbles. Aromas of brioche, caramel, honey and flowers. Rich and round on the palate with caramel, rye bread and baked apple notes, but with very nice acidity to keep it elegantly balanced. Wonderful length -- quite a pleasure overall."

Nebbiolo, 1982

Poderi Scanavino

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

Offley Vintage Port, 1982

Vintage Port

90 Points fortheloveofport.com

Reviews
1982 was a year that saw a few producers choosing to declare instead of 1983. Decanted almost 9 hours, what started out as a very sweet VP has slowly changed to a drier profile with lots of leather, no shortage of violets, light tannins still peaking through, and dried cherries on the finish. The palate is showing far more mature than the dark ruby color, this is quite the enjoyable

Quinta da Eira Velha, 1982

Vintage Port

Usually excellent - as with this '82… Fairly deep, plummy, trying to make a start at maturing; very good, rich, intense, rather high-toned, figgy, raisiny nose; a big sweet wine, with a very attractive, slightly raisiny flavour, touch of leanniness, otherwise excellent balance. Four stars, almost a five star future. Score: 4 Stars Broadbent, 1992
