Château Lafite-Rothschild - Vintage 1982
 
 Pauillac, Premier Cru Classé 
 
 Excellent Appearance, owc.
 
“The 1982 Lafite possesses a dark, dense ruby/purplecolor with only a subtle lightening at the rim. Spectacular aromatics offer jammy cherry and black fruits intertwinedwith lead pencil, mineral, and smoky wood scents.Powerful for a Lafite, this wine unfolds to revealextraordinary richness, purity, and overall symmetry inaddition to stunning flavor depth and persistence. Thefinish lasts for nearly a minute. An amazingachievement!” 100 points, RMP.

One label is nicked, owc.
 
“The phenomenally rich, well-endowed 1990 Pétrus has been magical from the first time I tasted it in cask. Thecolor is a dense, jammy plum/purple. The wine possessesa knock-out nose of black fruits intertwined with aromasof toasty new oak, caramel, and flowers. Massively richand full-bodied, with slightly lower acidity and sweeter tannin than its older sibling, the 1989, the 1990 is anextraordinarily rich, seamless wine with layers of flavor,and a finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds100 Points,RMP.

“It has a deep ruby color and a ripe, oaky, curranty bouquet with a trace of herbaceousness. On the palate, thewine is rich, elegant, supple, and not unlike the style of either the 1979 or 1981. It is a lovely wine.”90 points,RMP.

Château Cheval Blanc - Vintage 1964
 
St.-Emilion, Premier Grand Cru Classé (A)
 
 Level is high shoulder. Label is bin soiled. Capsule is slightly corroded. Cork is slightly depressed.
 
“The 1964 is a wonderfully rich, thick, powerful, andconcentrated wine that is the most authoritative ChevalBlanc produced since the monumental wines made by thischateau in 1947, 1948, and 1949. Opaque dark ruby, withonly some amber, and a powerful, yet restrained bouquetof roasted ripe fruit, cedar, herbs, and gravelly, mineralscents, the wine remains amazingly young and tannic,with layer upon layer of ripe fruit. This is a heavyweight,old-style Cheval Blanc that should be pure nectar for atleast another 10-15 years. It continues to evolve at asnail’s pace.” 95 points, RMP.

447 Château Lynch-Bages - Vintage 1990
 
 Pauillac, Cinquième Cru Classé 
 
Six labels are lightly bin soiled.
 
“This wine has provided terrific drinking since it was bottled. It may turn out to be a vintage such as 1982,which never shut down. The dark plum/purple color reveals some lightening at the edge. A big, sweet, plum,licorice, beef blood, and jammy cassis-scented bouquetwith smoked herbs and new wood in the background soarsfrom the glass. Enjoyable and accessible, this low acid,concentrated, velvety-textured wine continues to offer sumptuous drinking.” 94 points, RMP.

Château Mouton-Rothschild - Vintage 1996
 
 Pauillac, Premier Cru Classé 
 
Twelve labels are wrinkled.
 
“The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothschild offersimpressive aromas of black currants, framboise, coffee,and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, ripe, rich,concentrated, superbly balanced wine is paradoxical in thesense that the aromatics suggest a far more evolved winethan the flavors reveal.” 99 points, RMP.

Château Palmer - Vintage 1970
 
Margaux, Troisième Cru Classé 
 
 Level is high-mid shoulder.
 
“Not yet fully mature, the 1970 Palmer is one of the greatwines of the vintage. It exhibits a dark, opaque garnetcolor, and an emerging, fabulously complex, exotic noseof licorice, over-ripe plums and blackcurrants, soy, cedar,and minerals. Rich and concentrated, with medium to full body, a sweet inner-core of fruit, firm but silky tannin, anda long, rich finish, this remains a youthful, potentiallysuperb Palmer.” 95 points, RMP.

 Level is low shoulder. Label is lightly bin soiled. Capsuleis slightly corroded.
 
“The 1975 Pétrus reveals a youthful, rustic, brutally powerful style, with an opaque garnet/ruby/purple color,and an emerging nose of over-ripe black-cherries,mocha/chocolate, and truffles. It is potentially a 50 year wine, with exquisite concentration and intensity.”98 points, RMP.
