Learn more about 1982 White Burgundy
1982 marked an early harvest (from 16th September) for Burgundy and a big crop which favoured white wines much more than reds. Once again, as in 1973 and 1979, the Chardonnay produced delicious wines from high yields, as it would do again in 1992.
1982 was the last vintage of René Lafon who finished his spell in style with some admirable Meursaults. I finished up whatever was in my cellar well before the millennium.
