1982 vintage guide for White Burgundy

drink soon

Bumper vintage with attractive, quite fast-maturing wines

Weather Conditions

Ideal conditions in spring saw an early and abundant flowering. Summer was dry and warm through until August, which saw some rainfall. Ripening took place in September in perfect weather: plenty of sunshine and high temperatures, and these conditions continued throughout the harvest period, which ended in the first week of October.

Best Appellations

Despite the size of the crop, as in 1979 there were some surprising elegant, plump and even virile 1982s, though all but the very best are now showing age. Consistent across the Côte de Beaune.

Best Producers

Bonneau du Martray, Carillon, Jacques Gagnard-Delagrange, François Jobard, Lafon, Latour, Leflaive, Pierre Morey, Ramonet, Sauzet.
