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.
In Burgundy, the vineyards were not spared by the climatic conditions: cold, storms in August... The result is moderately good wines. Fortunately, the Domaine de la Romanée Conti 1984 was able to stand out and produce an exceptional grand cru.
The wines of the Rhône Valley are not of real interest in this vintage due to the difficult climatic conditions, yet the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation is doing quite well.
This year the Champagnes are to be avoided, devastated by rot, the vineyard is experiencing a low yield of modest quality. However, thanks to its principle of assembly, Champagne will still be able to offer bottles of honorable quality.
For 1984 Burgundy wines, look instead to the whites, which are better than the reds this year.
