A spectacular nose of kirsch liqueur, minerals, flowers, and blackberries jumps from the glass of this thick, dark ruby-colored Lafleur. Over-ripeness, a characteristic of many 1982s (I say that in a positive, not pejorative sense), is apparent in this jammy, unctuously-textured, massive wine. Somewhat of a paradox to taste, it offers notes of maturity, richness, and succulence contrasted with massive structure, muscle, and density. Thrilling to drink, despite its youthful, tannic grip, the 1975 and 1979 Lafleurs come closest to this wine's massiveness and formidable intensity. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030.
