1982 Haut-Médoc: when Allan Cheesman was in his pomp!

 1982 Château Barreyres, Haut-Médoc, Sainsbury's Vintage Selection

Opened on Thursday night and enjoyed with a pot roasted chicken this bottle of 1982 Château Barreyres, Haut-Médoc bought in Sainsbury's in Forest Hill, London SE23 for around £3 if I remember correctly. Showing well still with sweet, well textured fruit from the days when Allan Cheesman, in charge of wine at Sainsbury's then was his pomp!

I drank a lot of that back in the days when Sainsbury's stocked wine worth drinking. It's selection is dismal now.

Ah the days when Sainsbury's stocked wine worth drinking. Their selection is dismal now.
