1984 Vintage wine

Our opinion on the 1984 vintage: a vintage hit by hurricane Hortense

1984 is definitely a small vintage in Bordeaux. Late flowering and a winter marked by cyclone Hortense. The consequences were terrible for the winegrowers: ruined harvests and the inability to harvest the Merlot, which altered the quality of the wines. Even Pétrus only produced 20% of his usual harvest. It is not catastrophic, but the 1984 vintage remains very average in Bordeaux. On the other hand, in Sauternes the wines are rather successful, pleasant and still good. Witness the Château d‘Yquem 1984.
