90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 1985 Château Palmer was clearly a favourite amongst the participants in the tasting, although here I actually concur with Robert Parker - it's a pleasant Margaux, but not the most complex wine of the vintage. You get the feeling that it doesn't fire on all cylinders. It has an appealing bacon fact and savory bouquet - a little smudged, but full of charm. The palate is fleshy on the entry, perhaps here with a touch of brettanomyces, the acidity nicely judged wit...

1985 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien
Back In Stock!
94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Ripe aromas of plum, currant, lead pencil and milk chocolate. Sweet but penetrating and gripping, with lovely clarity of flavor and terrific thrust. Classic claret, with lovely fruit and a very long, ripely tannic finish. A compelling example from this very elegantly styled vintage. (ST)" (07/2002) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 is a gorgeous example that may well represent a more modern-day clone of the splendid 1953. Dark ruby/garnet with an open-knit, complex, ripe ...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in a sweeter style than the other ports, but it is a fabulous wine because of a dazzling level of black-cherry fruit, an enormous structure, and staggering depth, dimension, and length. (RP)" (01/1989) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Dark color, with intense aromas of blackberry, licorice and hints of flowers. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with superrefined tannins. Long and caressing. Very youthful. Will improve for a long time. This...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fine, classic Dow nose with notes of cloves, raisin and a touch of fig. Not incredibly complex but refined and inviting. The palate is sweet and fleshy, again cloves, red-berried fruit, a touch of spice and dates towards the finish. Moderate weight, certainly not an imposing, alcoholic Dow, but refined with great elegance and refinement. (NM)" (09/2007) K&L Notes: 5 stars from Michael Broadbent: "Very sweet, intense, and powerful. Very tannic. Very flavoury." Praise from Robert Parker: "This is an extraordina...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Shows an abundance of thick, rich fruit and plenty of backbone. Very inky, dense color, with a rich, floral nose of berries and cherries. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with massive anise and cherry flavors and extremely well integrated tannins and acidity. (Web-1989)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house tends to produce quite full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, spirited vintage ports that never have a great deal of complexity or finesse but offer meaty, chocolaty, spicy, full-bodied, alcoholic flavors at the expense of elegance....

88 points Robert Parker: "A new house, Churchill's 1985 showed extremely well in my tastings. Dark ruby/purple with a projected full-intensity bouquet of ripe plums, licorice, and fruitcake, full bodied, seductively soft, rich, and concentrated, this overly fruity wine seems precocious and only 5-7 years away from maturity. It is deep, delectable and delicious." (01/89)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Groth turned in a superb performance with its 1985 regular cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers beautiful, sweet, ripe, flashy, black-cherry and cassis fruit, toasty oak, and a subtle, herbaceous note. (RP)" (04/1995) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely perfumed, floral and cherry-berry aromas belie its age. Supple and graceful, this is a delicate wine that has shed most of its tannins yet retained a tasty core of fruit. Best soon, as the plum, floral and berry flavors are tasty. (JL, Web Only-2005)"

93 points John Gilman: "I have had this wine a number of times out of half bottle over the last few years, and it is a lovely drink in the smaller-sized format. However, in 750 ml. it is not even remotely near ready. The nose is deep and still rather reticent in this size, reluctantly offering up a fine mix of cassis, black cherry, tobacco, a bit of tar, violets, smoke and spicy wood. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and very well-delineated, with a rock solid core of fruit currently buttoned up tight behind a wall of ripe tannin. The finish is long...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Spain's most consistently great winery continues to turn out exciting wines. There are four Unico Reservas currently in the market. The 1985 Unico Reserva is already revealing considerable complexity and low acid, plump, round, rich flavors. There is no amber to be found in the wine's deep ruby/purple color. The nose offers tobacco, smoke, tar, and gobs of sweet black cherry fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with a layered, nuanced character, high glycerin (hence the sweetness in the flavors), and a lush, round, generou...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Greatness in subtlety. Clearly focused black cherry and vanilla character. It's full-bodied with medium tannins and a juicy, fruity finish. (JS)" (10/1994) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Palmer vertical in London, the 1985 Château Palmer was clearly a favourite amongst the participants in the tasting, although here I actually concur with Robert Parker - it's a pleasant Margaux, but not the most complex wine of the vintage.

94 points Wine Spectator: " *Spectator Selection* Dense, rich and complex, this wine keeps unfolding with every sip, offering coffee, cherry, nutmeg, plum, and then herb and currant flavors and a velvety texture." (08/1990) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has been consistently outstanding on every occasion I have tasted it. It is a rich, deeply colored wine with an attractive, complex, spicy, cedary, cassis-scented nose, medium to full body, rich flavors, considerable youthfulness to its personality, and a long, rich, moderately ta...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Leroy Ruchottes-Chambertin is a classic example of a grand cru from the Gevrey-Chambertin appellation. The color is still very dark ruby, and the bouquet has just begun to release secondary aromas of grilled meats, leather, and baked red and black fruits. The high tannin levels may cause some to think the wine is rustic and rough-edged, but there is sensational concentration of fruit, a deep mid-palate, and a spectacular, long, opulent, tannic finish. (RP)" (12/1992)

1985 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion
Back In Stock!
95 points John Gilman: "The 1985 Cheval Blanc is a beautiful bottle of young wine that still needs several years of cellaring to fully reach its apogee and start to show all of its multi-layered complexity. The bouquet is deep and clearly destined for profundity, but still a tad primary in its mélange of dark berries, menthol, tobacco leaf, gravelly soil tones, smoke and a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite tight, with a great core of pure fruit, impeccable focus and balance, ripe tannins and great length and g...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 is a gorgeous example that may well represent a more modern-day clone of the splendid 1953. Dark ruby/garnet with an open-knit, complex, ripe nose of sweet red as well as black currants, vanilla, fruitcake, tobacco, cedar, and earth, the wine is medium-bodied with exceptional sweetness, soft tannin, and a supple, very nicely layered finish. (RP)" (12/2002) Jancis Robinson: "Anthony Barton's first vintage in solo charge very kindly served by him at a lunch at Langoa. This has always been a lovely wine. ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful L’Evangile and one of the vintage’s top successes, the color still retains a very dense ruby/purple with only a bit of lightening at the edge. A classic nose of liquid intermixed with black raspberries., blackberries, licorice, and a hint of truffle jumps from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, well-balanced, sweet, authoritatively powerful yet at the same time elegant wine. It has reached full maturity , where it should rest for some time to come. (RP)" (01/2003) 93 points ...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ruby-colored, with grape, dark chocolate and plum. Full and chewy. Tannins are still there and need to mellow. Medium-sweet and grapey. A little one-dimensional still, but impressive. (JS, Web Only-2008)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop … they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style. The 1985 is the sweetest and richest of the...

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fresh, lively notes of spice box, roasted herbs, black currants and plums are followed by a dark, broodingly backward wine with impressive richness, full body and a long finish displaying light to moderate tannins. The acidity is more vibrant and noticeable than in other vintages, but the wine has more than sufficient lushness and extravagance of fruit and glycerin to balance out the structural components. This beauty should continue to drink well for another 15-20+ years. (RP)" (11/2013)
