1982 Bordeaux Dinner at Wingtip

It’s not everyday that we have an opportunity to experience a snapshot of history in a glass, with a particular focus on one of the most legendary vintages of our lifetime. Hailed as a vintage that changed everything, 1982 was stellar in Bordeaux, with praise coming from all angles, particularly from wine critic, Robert Parker. This vintage has perhaps done more to stir hype in the market, drastically affect prices, and influence a stylistic shift in winemaking that still resonates. Why do people still talk about this as one of the finest vintages of Bordeaux ever? Come find out as we taste through a well-curated lineup of stellar producers from the legendary vintage, including two 100 point wines and 3 of the 5 First Growths.

Matthew Goldfarb of The Cellar Manager put together this parcel from the cellar of a legendary collector in the Los Angeles area. All wines were purchased on release or through trusted auction and retail sources and stored in temperature and humidity control.
