2013 Lafon Volnay Clos des Chenes

Closed with a Diam 30 which had a slippery, shiny coating of possibly silicone. Dark color and seemingly extracted a bit, with an equally dark nose of blue fruits; fairly accessible with no secondary flavors at this point. Smooth on the palate with good length. Keep for more maturity but worth tryin...

Re: How would we rate 1982 Bordeaux if they were released today?

I bought 82s on release and sold a bottle of Cheval Blanc to Mark Golodetz a few years ago. He can attest to the attributes a pristine bottle has. Mouton, Lafite, Cheval, Margaux, and others have all been in great shape over the years and I still have a few assorted cases to taste.

I read wine articles to find out more about wine. I even balk at most of my musician friends recommending music to me, so I'd rather not hear any thoughts on someone's musical opinions. Music may even be more of a personal preference than wine.

Interesting note - "Lives up to the hype, and then some. On par with the brilliant 2008 Dom Perignon and Cristal". I've had the 08 Dom a few times and the Cristal twice and I'd certainly give them more than the 93 points you did, unless that is for current tasting and not future potential.
