1985 Baraillon 33 Year Old K&L Exclusive Vintage Bas-Armagnac (750ml) Top Pick!
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 - ...Read More »

1985 Fonseca Vintage Port

96 points Decanter: "A troublesome vintage for many shippers, but Fonseca 1985 never fails to impress: tight-knit, dense and minty with a core of concentration and pure berry fruit. Succulent, wonderfully fresh and vibrant at 30 years old. Peacock’s tail of a finish. A real ‘wow’ of a wine that promises to last a lifetime. (RM)" (11/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's 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 drie ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

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 ...Read More »

1985 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "This estate produces classy, fine wines and the 1985 is no different. Cherry, tobacco and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very firm, with wonderful tannins and a long, voluptuous finish. (JS)" (10/1994) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience vertical in London. This example is better than the one Veronique Sanders poured for lunch in 2007 (sorry Mrs. V.) This has a mature nose, ripe fleshy fruits, certainly rather decayed with cooked meats, mint, a touch of burnt sugar that turns mo ...Read More »

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.

1985 Moët & Chandon "Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne Nicked Foil-Nicked Label

96 points John Gilman: "The 1985 Dom Pérignon is still several years away from its peak of drinkability, and while it is certainly quite approachable at this stage in its evolution, this wine will continue to improve with further bottle age. 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, fi ...Read More »

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)
