1984 is definitely a small vintage in Bordeaux. A late flowering and a winter marked by cyclone Hortense. The consequences were terrible for the winegrowers: a devastated harvest and the inability to harvest the Merlot, which altered the quality of the wines. Even Pétrus only produced 20% of his usual harvest. It's not catastrophic, but the 1984 vintage remains very average in the Bordeaux region. The greastest wines are the Château Cheval Blanc 1984, Château Haut Brion 1984 and Château Cos d'Estournel 1984.
In Sauternes the wines are rather successful, light and interesting such as Château d'Yquem 1984. Then, in Burgundy, the vineyards were not spared by the climatic conditions: cold, storms in August… The result is moderately good wines. But, the Domaine de la Romanée Conti 1984 is wonderful.
