1985 Graham's Vintage Port

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 ...

1985 Baraillon 33 Year Old K&L Exclusive Vintage Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

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 - ...

1985 Taylor Vintage Port

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 ...

1985 René Collard "Cuvée Speciale" Brut Rosé Champagne

René Collard was born in 1921 in the heart of the Marne Valley. At 22, his father (who was a grower) saw his dedication to the family vineyards and gave him a little less than a hectare of vines in the village of Reuil. Since that time he has been making a tiny amount of the most unique Champagne in the world. He has slowly added to his estate, buying up choice vineyards in the villages of Reuil and Damery. His estate is just less than 7 hectares (17.5 acres) planted to about 90% Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. He has the good fortune of having an amazing ce ...

1985 Salon "Le Mesnil" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (scuffed label)

99 points Decanter: "This is the absolute epitome of elegance, pleasure and sophistication. The balance, complexity and length here leave me awestruck. Its polished butteriness, flinty minerality and wonderfully sleek and clear lime notes are totally compelling and seductive. Is this the greatest ever? (RJ) 99.5" (02/2017) 97 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given. " (12/2000) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "An enormously complex and rich wine that almost defies description. Golden apples, raisins and pears; bread, cream, vanilla, honey and nuts. ...

1985 Joseph Phelps "Backus" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (3L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "A distinct chocolate mint note dominates the black cherry and currant flavors. It's rich and fairly tannic, requiring a few years' cellaring. The finish displays the concentration and structure that bodes well for aging. " (12/1988)

1985 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

93 points John Gilman: "The decade of the 1980s was a remarkable stretch for Château Haut-Bailly and the 1985 is another outstanding wine from this stunning string of wines. The superb and very perfumed nose offers up an expressive blend of black cherries, red plums, menthol, a touch of citrus, cigar ash, a lovely base of gravelly soil tones, black truffles and a bit of nutty new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly suave on the attack, with a fine core of fruit, perfect focus and balance and a very long, complex and softly tannic ...

1985 Warre's Vintage Port

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. '77/'85/'97 blind Port retrospective. (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 1 ...

1985 Léoville-Barton, St-Julien

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 ...

1985 Margaux, Margaux (signs of past seepage, stained label)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Approaching full maturity, this beautifully sweet Chateau Margaux has a dense plum/purple color and a huge, sweet nose of black currants intermixed with licorice, toast, underbrush, and flowers. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannin and a fleshy, juicy, very succulent and multi-layered mid-palate, this expansive, velvety wine has entered its plateau of maturity, where it should remain (assuming good storage) for at least another 10-15 years. A very delicious, seductive, and opulent Chateau Margaux to drink ove ...

1985 Inglenook "Reserve Cask" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and polished, with intense cherry, currant, mint and herb aromas and flavors framed by hints of cedar. A bit tannic, but balanced, and almost elegant right through the finish. A youthful wine that can use until 1996 or '97 to buff the edges. *Cellar Selection* " (02/1991) K&L Notes: 95 points James Laube: "Beautifully balanced, with layers of rich, elegant, concentrated plum, cherry, currant and spice flavors supported by firm, lean yet structured tannins. Promises to be long-lived Cabernet in the finest Cask traditi ...

1985 Poujeaux, Moulis-en-Medoc

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 ...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (94JD, 93JG, 91RP, 91WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing a youthful red color with some slight lightening at the edges, the 1985 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape has a beautiful Beaucastel funk nose with ripe raspberries, earth, leather, mushroom and sauvage notes. Perfumed, nuanced and complex, this held up wonderfully over the course of dinner and even gained intensity with air. The palate is medium bodied with a silky, almost seamless texture, nice balance and a medium length finish. Everything is perfectly integrated and this was drinking amazingly well. An awesome wine."

1985 Noël Verset Cornas
Bid on this bottle of 1985 Noël Verset Cornas (95JG, 95VN, 91RP). Vinous: "If you're lucky enough to get your hands on a bottle of the Verset 1985 Cornas, and can afford the tariff, absolutely do not miss it. The wine displays powerful aromas of dried cherries, pungent flowers, cured tobacco and underbrush, with a hint of raw beef in the background - it really smells a lot like a mature, traditionally made, high-class Burgundy to me. Silky and alluringly sweet, it shows intense, palate-coating raspberry and cherry compote flavors that are lifted and sharpened by gentle acidity and a peppery nuance. The floral quality comes back strong on the tannin-free finish, which hangs on with outstanding tenacity and focus. It's fully mature, no question, but I'd continue to hold onto my bottles of this wine, if I were lucky enough to have any, for at least another ten years, with full confidence. (JR)" (01/2015)

1985 Auguste Clape Cornas
Bid on this bottle of 1985 Auguste Clape Cornas (93JG, 90RP). John Gilman: "A few years ago I opened on my lone bottle of the beautiful 1991 Clape Cornas, which was a more refined wine than this very good bottle of 1985. I suppose it is not too surprising that the ’85 Clape is still a bit on the adolescent side of its developmental arc, as it offers up a bouquet of black raspberries, medicinal syrah tones, hung game, pepper, stony soil tones, a touch of walnut, fresh herbs and lovely spice elements in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and seemingly more evolved than on the nose, with a good core, still a bit of firm tannin to soften up and excellent length and grip on the complex and slightly rustic finish. This is a very, very good bottle of Cornas that still has many years of life ahead of it, and though today, it is not quite as complete as the 1991 Clape, it still has many years ago and may one day match that wine. (Drink between 2013-2040)" (
