1982 was a fabulous vintage in Bordeaux, and this is now at the peak of glorious maturity for current drinking.
Parker said in 2009:
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.

consistent with previous note. this is still lively and remains in a near perfect state of balance and harmony. each sip is a pleasure and for me it epitomizes the greatness of this vintage at a price point i can afford.

Not that strong as Haut Brion 1990 and 95. in the same flight with Montrose 1982 a hint weaker, but nice drinkable at the moment, reached his peak, classical left bak Bordeaux, 91
