This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

MNSC Dinner - 1982 Super-Seconds

MNSC Dinner at Golden Leaf.  Theme was 1982 Bordeaux Super-Seconds.

1982 Ducru-Beaucaillou - this was just like the last few bottles I had - relatively flat and unexciting.  Nose of sweet grass, medium-bodied.  After a long time, it opened up and was a bit better, more fruit in the nose.

1982 Léoville-Las Cases - this was much better and my favorite of the night.  Nose of jammy plum, coconut, with a hint of straw, and smoke/tobacco.  Full-bodied.  Very nice, but none of us felt that this deserved 100 points.

1982 Cos d'Estournel - this wasn't bad and well-received.  Nose of sweet berries, moss, pepper, smoke and veggies.  Pretty good but not as good as what we had at the Cos dinner.

1982 Pichon-Lalande - this was a bit acidic at first, especially when drunk with food, producing a sour after palate.  After a bit of time, became very fruity, also a bit of mint in the nose.  Pretty good, but again, not worth of "100".

1982 Gruaud-Larose - this was OK, but bad.  Nose of Chinese medicine, leather and smoked meats dominate.
