Tasting Notes

Though having tasted the Haut-Brion 1982 on numerous occasions, it is still a divine Pessac-Léognan to cherish. Here at The Glasshouse restaurant, it has that lovely warm gravel on a summer's day bouquet, brown autumn leaves, bay leaf and here= a slightly more conspicuous note of black olive than I have noticed in the past. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, again a little more diffuse than its fellow 1982 First Growths, but with just as much charm. If anything, it feels a little tighter and more backward than previous examples, perhaps suggesting that bottles of excellent provenance will last many years. It is a wonderful 1982 First Growth, not a pinnacle of the vintage, but disarmingly and utterly charming. Tasted July 2014.

Provenance

This collection comes to us from Montreal where it has been meticulously built up since about 2003 when the couple decided to start collecting wine.Ê The purchases occurred primarily from the LCBO (Ontario government store) and the SAQ (Quebec government store) on release whenever possible.Ê It was always intended to purchase the best wines possible and the inventory will show that commitment.Ê The cellar itself had proper cooling and humidification systems and was indeed a showpiece in the home.Ê A family situation has caused it to come to us for sale
