1982 is one of the best Bordeaux vintages on record. A huge crop of the most concentrated and profound offerings since the outstanding 1961 vintage.
All but the bigger-styled wines of the vintage have been mature since the mid-1990s. Most of the classified growths have reached maturity, but the heavyweights from Pomerol, Saint-Émilion, Saint Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe are evolving at such a slow rate that they should be drinking at their peak now with the scope for a little further cellaring.
