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-2008)" (02/2008) 90 points 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 recent War...

1985 Domaine de Baraillon 38 Year Old K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Top Pick!
If there were ever a romantic ideal for French countryside distillation, the Baraillons are it. Out in the middle of nowhere, there's nothing glossed over or touristic about their operation - they are farmers, pure and simple. David and I absolutely fell in love with this father/daughter team even though they hardly said a word to us the entire time we tasted (they let their booze speak for itself). This single barrel 1985 brandy is one of the finest spirits we tasted on the entire trip. A mix of Ugni Blanc and Baco, the nose is absolutely hypnotizing - ...

97 points Decanter: "Probably the best wine from a good, ripe though rather variable vintage: still deep at the centre with a thin tawny rim; lovely ripe plummy aromas, open but still brooding with more to reveal; ripe and fleshy on the palate with glorious plum and cherry fruit backed by firm ripe tannins leading to a powerful finish. Ready to drink now and will keep and develop in bottle for another thirty years at least! (RM)" (09/2021) 96 points Wine Advocate: "Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. Yes, it is made in ...

93 points Wine Advocate: "The 1985 Fonseca is still youthful in appearance with hardly any ageing on the rim. The nose offers kirsch, sloes and Christmas cake. With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The palate is medium-bodied and beautifully balanced on the supple, rounded entry. It is not quite as complex as the aromatics, with dates and dried fig, the finish mellow and refined. It is very elegant for a Fonseca, weighty but supremely well focused. This is a fabulous Fonseca that is ready ...

Wine Advocate: "One rarely sees this brand stateside. The 1985 is one of the surprises of the vintage. It has an intense nose of chocolate, berry fruit, and tar. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied with layers of fruit. It finishes sweeter than some of the other ports with a great deal of tannin. (RP)" (01/1989)

90 points Vinous: "Picked between 25 September and 9 October, it is mature in color with some bricking on the rim. The palate is a little rustic with red berries intermingling with bacon fat, singed leather, bay leaf and a slither of dried orange peel. The palate is very well balanced, fleshy in keeping with the style of the vintage, not as complex or as structured as the 1986, but certainly superior to the 1982 Montrose, with an effortless, nonchalant finish that beckons you back for another sip. Just a delicious Saint Estèphe that is à point. Drink 201...

1985 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (slightly pushed cork, lightly scuffed label)
New!
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...

91 points John Gilman: "I adored Poujeaux back in the decade of the 1980s, when it was one of the greatest steals to be found on the Left Bank, and the 1985 showed beautifully at our big tasting of the vintage here in New York in October. The bouquet is deep, complex and utterly classic for this fine Moulis property, wafting from the glass in a mix of cassis, cigar ash, incipient notes of chipotle peppers, a touch of coffee and a topnote of graphite. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, complex and beautifully tangy, with a fine core of fruit, meltin...

Domaine de Maucaillou is just 2.3 hectares of vineyard situated in the heart of Margaux, managed by the two sisters that own the property. 1985 is largely considered an outstanding vintage in Bordeaux, and this fully mature wine lives up to the hype.

Wine Spectator: "Elegant and refined with cedar, plum, spice and tobacco flavors hung on a fleshy framework. Finishes with good length." (06/1988)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (97DC, 95VN, 95WS, 94RP, 94ST). Decanter: "It is tough to put into words how much I love this wine, alongside its slightly more concentrated cousin, Leoville Las Cases from the same vintage. They are both classic examples of what the very best of Bordeaux should be. The Lynch Bages is loaded with everything you want from mature Pauillac: cedar, cigar box, menthol, a touch of red fruit and the kind of feeling that you are finally home. There is no outlying tannin but is slightly lighter in style than both the 1982 and 1986. In the two dozen or so times that I have drunk this wine it has never been anything short of spectacular. Textbook. There is no benefit from waiting, but there is also no rush. (GB)" (02/2023)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1985 Trefethen "Hillside Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in original wood. Wine Spectator: "An herbal-styled Cabernet, with adequate depth and concentration and enough tannins to warrant cellaring through 1993 before beginning to drink...." (11/1990)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien (90RP). Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium brick-brown colored, the 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou slowly unfurls to reveal notes of Christmas pudding, dried cranberries and bouquet garni with nuances of cast iron pan, dusty soil and woodsmoke. Medium-bodied, the palate has a firm, chewy backbone and oodles of freshness with a core of dried herbs and stewed tea and a slightly rustic finish. (LPB)" (08/2020)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Langtry Road" Spring Mountain Claret and 1-bottle of 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Wine Creek Road" Sonoma County Zinfandel. Of the 1985 Ridge Vineyards "Langtry Road" Spring Mountain Claret, Not your usual "claret": this wine is 57% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignan. From a 100-year-old vineyard in Napa, only 22 barrels produced. . . .The winemaking for Ridge combines old-school techniques using native yeasts and avoiding filtration. While Ridge is best known for its Cabernet, they are also well known for their range of Zinfandel wines and Zinfandel-based blends. Praise for Ridge's cellar classics from the 1980s by Antonio Galloni writes: "It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity to revisit some of the reference point wines that have emerged from Ridge over the last few years."

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Maison Leroy Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru "Clos des Argillières". Robert Parker for Wine Advocate: "Much has been written about the dynamic Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. Some of it has been malicious and motivated strictly by insidious jealousy. From time to time I have complained of her pricing structure. Yet there should never be any criticism of her philosophy of what burgundy should be. Her wines are among the noblest and purest expressions of Pinot Noir in Burgundy. They are treated with the care of a pampered child, never filtered, and bottled barrel by barrel." (12/1989)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1985 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92VN). Vinous: "Good full medium red, with faint amber at the edge. Pungent scents of raspberry, spices, cedar and eucalyptus. A distinctly penetrating, high-acid style with noteworthy clarity and energy to its floral flavors of berries, dark cherry and loam complicated by a touch of molasses and an obvious oak component. This soil-driven midweight, the product of a long, cool growing season, finishes with a sneaky building whiplash of flavor, with a slight dry edge suggesting energetic extraction. Classic older-style Georges de Latour. (ST)" (04/2019)

Bid on this 3 liter of 1985 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (3L). Wine Spectator: "Clean and pure, this is at a nice stage of development, reflective of the best from this celebrated vintage. Complex and focused, with aromas of currant, dried herb, anise and cherry offering more complexity.—Robert Mondavi vertical (December 2015). *#38, Top-100 Wines of 1989* (JL)" (06/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Le Pin, Pomerol (94RP, 94WS). Wine Advocate: "A sexy tart of a wine, this open-knit, expensive, fleshy wine offers up sumptuous notes of smoked herbs, melted caramel, espresso, jammy black currant and cherry fruit, and plenty of licorice. (RP)" (12/2002)
Current Bid: $1,840.00

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Moët & Chandon "Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (96JG, 95BH, 95RP). John Gilman: "The bouquet is deep, complex and still a tad adolescent, as it offers up scents of tart apples, pink grapefruit, gentle herbal tones, a touch of limepeel, stony minerality and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and still quite young, with a rock solid core of fruit, bright acids, fine focus and balance, tiny bubbles and superb length and grip on the racy finish. While some tasters around the table thought this wine was drinking beautifully, for my palate it remains still a bit bound up in its minerally adolescence and will offer up significantly more opulence and toasty charm with another five to ten years of bottle age. . . an absolutely classic vintage" (05/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Maison Leroy Beaune 1er Cru "La Mignotte" (90RP). Wine Advocate: "Much has been written about the dynamic Madame Lalou Bize-Leroy. Some of it has been malicious and motivated strictly by insidious jealousy. From time to time I have complained of her pricing structure. Yet there should never be any criticism of her philosophy of what burgundy should be. Her wines are among the noblest and purest expressions of Pinot Noir in Burgundy. They are treated with the care of a pampered child, never filtered, and bottled barrel by barrel. Given the size of her wines and their power and structure, in a cool damp cellar they will last 20 to 25 years. Bize-Leroy thinks 1985 is one of the two best burgundy vintages in the last twenty years, the other being 1978. Given the range of wines I tasted, 44 in all, 16 were exceptional, 21 very good to excellent." (12/1998)
Current Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96JG, 94RP). John Gilman: "The wine is flat out brilliant, as it soars from the glass in a mélange of black cherries, saddle leather, a great base of soil tones, eucalyptus, smoke, incipient notes of petroleum jelly and a very gentle framing of new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and powerful, with a rock solid core of fruit, great complexity, moderate tannins and a very long, perfectly balanced, tangy and palate-staining finish. This is a very intense vintage of Martha’s that is decidedly younger than the 1987 for instance, and still demands plenty of cellaring time. It will clearly prove to be a legendary vintage of Martha’s and certainly has earned its special label. (JG) 96+" (04/2021)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95JA). Jane Anson: "1985 was a great vintage for Napa Valley in general, and Opus retains a ruby red colour, with tawny edging. Well structured, great quality, clear texture through the heart of the wine, a little less freshness than vintages such as the 1979 but bursting with velvety, perfectly placed tannins. Tiptoes through the palate barely putting a foot wrong. Not a blockbuster, still in the European sensibility as it slides effortlessly towards tertiary character, with so much still to give. The first vintage where Patrick Léon of Mouton was winemaker alongside Tim Mondavi, at the tipping point towards a more modern style. 21 days skin contact." (06/2022)

Bid on this bottle of 1985 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96VN). Vinous: "The 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon S.L.V. is simply enchanting. Mulberry, roasted chestnut, raisin, fresh fig and iodine soar from the glass, fresh as the day it was born (I expect). The palate is beautifully balanced with melted tannins that frame the fleshy red fruit that segue into dark plum and blackcurrant mixed with tar and cedar on the harmonious finish. Fabulous.
