Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 l'Arrosée, St-Emilion (92JG). John Gilman: "I have loved the 1985 Château l'Arrosée since very early on in the wine’s lifetime, and it continues to drink with style and grace as it passes by its thirtieth birthday. The bouquet shows a bit more toasty new oak than one would like when the wine is first poured, but once the wine settles down in the glass, all the beautiful fruit tones come up and absorb most of the new wood, with the bouquet eventually delivering a complex mélange of red and black cherries, cigar smoke, coffee, a lovely base of soil and toasty oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely plush on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip and a long, mature and velvety finish. Lovely juice. " (01/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 L'Eglise-Clinet, Pomerol (95RP, 94WS, 92VN, 91JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A superstar of the vintage … This wine still has a very saturated opaque ruby/purple color that is far less evolved than almost any other 1985. The wine has sweet cranberry, black cherry, and blackberry fruit notes intermixed with mineral, cold steel, and a hint of cedar. Rich, full-bodied, with fabulous purity, a very well-delineated feel in the mouth, enormous richness, and a long finish that goes on for nearly 45 seconds, the wine seems to grow incrementally in the glass with increasing amounts of air, and is certainly a 1985 that has evolved at a snail’s pace compared to most wines of this vintage.

Bid on this 1-half-bottle lot of 1985 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (375ml) (99JS, 94JG, 93DC, 93RP). James Suckling: What an awe-inspiring nose of currants, shaved lead pencil, white truffles and earth. It's full-bodied and enveloped by silky tannins that lead to an earthy, long finish. Old, traditional Bordeaux with soul and remarkable complexity. Sensational. (10/2015)

Bid on this magnum of 1985 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (97DC). Decanter: "Patrick Leon's first year as winemaker alongside Tim Mondavi, as Lucien Sionneau retired. This is a superb vintage (in fact the entire trio of 1984, 1985 and 1986 are a wonderful balance of Napa and Bordeaux). Dark flesh with an anise, saline edge to the finish, luscious quality to the brambled fruits, with a sweetness that gives away their age but a ton of minerality that keeps things skipping along. 21 days skin contact (note that they start to nudge this figure upwards at this point). Widely seen as one of the best vintages of the 1980s, with an early budbreak, a long moderate growing season and warm dry harvest, and this is still going strong. (JA)" (09/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (93JG, 92WS). John Gilman: "While I have been a big fan of the 1985 vintage in Bordeaux for many years and have written quite a bit about these wines in recent times, I had not tasted a bottle of the 1985 Pichon-Lalande since I cannot remember when. I sold this wine right out of the blocks in my merchant days and always liked it well enough, but in my formative years, I found it a bit too “weedy” and did not end up cellaring it for my own collection. I think this was the only vintage of Pichon-Lalande I did not buy for my cellar in that era, as I started laying in the wines with the 1981 vintage and bought them every year (even the 1984 and 1987) up through the 1989, before my buying habits (and my more limited cellar budget in those days) turned towards Burgundy. But, I skipped the 1985 and that was too bad, as the wine has aged quite beautifully and is now drinking with great style and grace. ! " (09/2019)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 d'Issan, Margaux (90JG). John Gilman: "I cannot recall having ever tasted the 1985 d’Issan previously, but the wine turned out to be one of the great positive surprises of our October tasting. This is one of the lowest octane wines of the vintage, coming in at 11.5% alcohol, but it has turned out to be a lovely and very stylish middleweight of very impressive complexity and breed. The wine wafts from the glass in a classy blend of cassis, dark berries, singed tobacco, dark soil tones, a touch of clam shell and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is medium-full, low fat and very complex, with a good core, fine focus and balance, modest tannins and excellent length and grip on the classic finish. This wine is fully into its apogee of peak drinkability, but will continue to cruise along for many decades to come. A lovely wine of the old school. 90+" (09/2014)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Canon, St-Émilion (95JS, 94JG, 90RP). James Suckling: "I drank this in Bangkok last week and it was drinking beautifully like many 1985 Right Bank wines. I heard it is a favorite with aristocrats in Thailand. I love the balance of fruit with spice, light coffee bean and dried plum character with hints of chocolate and walnut shell. It is full-bodied with superfine tannins that go on for minutes. Wonderful balance now." (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $220.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (94JG). John Gilman: "The 1985 Château La Lagune is a beautiful bottle of wine that has now reached its apogee of peak drinkability and offers up superb complexity and elegance. The refined bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of dark berries, cigar smoke, a complex base of La Lagune’s dark soil tones, a touch of chipotle pepper and a discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and absolutely perfect in its balance, with excellent mid-palate depth, fine focus and grip, fleeting tannins and lovely length on the stylish and classy finish. This is a great, classic vintage for La Lagune that still has decades of life ahead of it." (09/2014)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Fieuzal, Pessac-Léognan (90WS). Wine Spectator: "The first in a string of outstanding wines from this estate. Still not giving much but has plenty on reserve to assure a long and excellent maturation. Shows fruity, chocolate, toasted oak aromas and flavors and super-firm fruit and tannins. (JS)" (10/1994)
