Vintage description 1982 Bordeaux

An extraordinary vintage both in quality and quantity. Almost perfect weather conditions resulted in an overabundant harvest with extraordinarily ripe grapes. The majority of the châteaux produced perfect yields and incredibly complex, rich and concentrated and wines. Comparable to 1961, 1945 and 1929, the 1982 vintage is truly a legendary Bordeaux vintage. Slightly inferior in their early years, the sweet wines now reveal an extraordinary richness.
