1982 was not only a sensational vintage for the wines of Bordeaux, one might easily say it was historic. The quality of the wines—and the feverish excitement with which they were received—set the stage for the modern age of Bordeaux wines. The hot, dry growing season yielded rich, opulent vintages which redefined the perception of the region. Coming into their full maturity now, thirty-five years later, the 1982 Bordeaux are a treat for the senses.
