First group of wines from the second flight of the 1982 #Bordeaux tasting. The two wines from #StEmilion were charming and still drinking well, but didn’t achieve the highs of the wines from #Pomerol. The 1982 Figeac showed off an advanced color and equally mature aromas. It had a distinct sweet scuppernong aroma, to go along with plum, truffle, cigar, and old library book. With a medium elegant weight on the palate, this wine appeared to be past its peak a bit. The 1982 Canon seemed younger and more likely. Though it lacked the charming mature aromas of the Figeac, it had brighter fruit and a fresh, floral nose. Very enjoyable overall and no obvious signs of tiring. The 1982 Margaux was one of my favorites of the evening. Incredibly floral and perfumed, toasty, and with lots of pencil shavings. Very young, very complex, and so well balanced. Whenever I drink the 82 Margaux, I am always struck by how much younger the 82 seems than the 83 right now. Still, I prefer the style and current drinking state of the 1983 right now, if I had to choose.
