1985 Margaux, Margaux (lightly bin soiled)

SKU #1123964 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2003)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows mint and savory notes out front, with a very elegant structure weaving gently around the core of dried cherry, red currant and pomegranate fruit. The long sandalwood and singed cedar finish is very stylish. A bit outpaced by '88 and '86 in this flight, but as a standalone wine this is very confident in its old age. Non-blind Château Margaux vertical. (Web-2014) Inner quote mark

Decanter

Outer quote mark Deep red; supple nose, ripe, has charm, a lot of oak; rich, ripe, succulent, concentrated, lively, impeccable, fine balance and acidity, delicious and pure; good length. Inner quote mark (6/1998)
