Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1985

Saint Estephe, 2me Cru Classe

***94 Points, Jeanie Cho Lee***
***95 Parker Points ***

"A fully mature Cos at its prime; delicious to drink with seamless texture and velvety tannins. Several different bottles opened in one evening prove this is a solid Cos that is the epitome of its 'old style' when subtlety was prized more than power."
* Jeannie Cho Lee, 2014*


"The 1985 from cask could have been a lighter version of the 1982 and 1953 vintages. Forward, with a fabulously scented bouquet of pain grille and concentrated red and black fruits (especially black cherries), it is rich, lush, long, and medium to full-bodied.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, 1985

St Julien, 2eme Growth Classification

An outstanding wine scoring 92 Parker points. Reviews: "For sheer elegance, charm, and finesse, the 1985 Ducru-Beaucaillou has it all. The wine is close to full maturity, yet retains a vibrancy and youthfulness that is unusual for a 1985. The generous flavors are soft, but not flabby. The wine possesses outstanding concentration yet is elegant and refreshing. This is a beautifully knit, harmonious Ducru. " Parker Bordeaux 3rd Edition

Chateau Figeac, 1985

St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe A

1985 Chateau Figeac reviews

Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. It has been a number of years since I last tasted the 1985 Figeac. It is forward on the nose, laden with Provençal herbs, autumn leaves and cloves, certainly more forward than the 1985 Cheval Blanc, as one example. There is a fine definition and linearity on the entry, hints of dried blood percolating through the mass of dried herbs with a slight bitterness towards the finish. On this occasion, against my expectations and indeed against form, it is the 1986 that I prefer, whereas the 1985 appears to be in graceful decline.

Chateau La Lagune, 1985

Haut Medoc, 3rd Growth Classification

Fully mature, the 1985 La Lagune has a dark plum color and a sweet nose of plums, cherries, and licorice intermixed with some toasty new oak. Always open-knit, somewhat too obvious, but tasty, in a medium-bodied, moderately weighty style, this soft, supple-textured wine

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1985

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe, Level vts, label damage

94 points Wine Journal

Reviews: " it remains a sublime Claret. The nose here has more graphite/pencil box signature, wonderful definition, the cigar box aromas then intensifying with aeration with red-berried fruit, bergamot and redcurrant. The palate is imbued with wonderful poise and elegance, not a powerful or tannic Mouton like the ’86, but still very harmonious and exuding freshness from start until finish with hints of tobacco and a hint of Lapsang Souchong lacing aftertaste.

Graham's Port, 1985

Vintage Port

An exceptional Port scoring 96/100 Parker Points

Graham is a great port house, producing one of the deepest-coloured and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. Graham is the undisputed star and kingpin of the 1985 vintage ports. 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.

Hooper's Port, 1985

Vintage Port

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Surprisingly opaque and purple, this port has a tightly knit but compact structure, fine depth of fruit, full body, yet seems to tail off in the finish. One of the more tannic and closed ports of this otherwise charming, precocious vintage. (1/1989)

Wine Spectator
Medium purple-ruby with fresh raspberry and chocolate aromas, full-bodied with plenty of raspberry flavors, silky medium tannins and a fresh finish. (12/1989)

Quinta Do Infantado, 1985

Vintage Port

Deep, almost opaque, ruby in colour, with ripe cherries, plums and dark chocolate perfumes on the nose. On the palate the wine is rich and sweet, but beautifully balanced by well-integrated tannins and a chocolate, plum and savoury cherry fruit. The finish is clean and smooth, with fine, delicate perfumes of warm, ripe fruit.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 1985

Sale

Vintage Port
Special Offer | Was 89.95 | now £64.95

"Sandeman is one of the biggest and most conspicuous of the port houses, with extensive interests in the sherry business as well. They advertise significantly and their products are well-represented in virtually every American marketplace. The quality is quite good given the quantity of wine produced...The 1985 has less of a deep-ruby/purple color, but it does offer a spice-box, fruitcake sort of aroma, mildly sweet, medium- to full-bodied flavors, and a ripe, tasty finish. Not a heavyweight, this wine represents a lighter style of vintage port. (1/ 1989) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Wine Spectator
Elegant and balanced, but a little short on concentration.

Taylor's Port, 1985

Vintage Port

"Typical for Taylor's. Notes of woodspice and pepper, very slightly spirity. Nevertheless, a delicious texture on entry, supple and stylish, although with a very firm weight, firm tannins and good acids. Again this is fine to drink now, although it still holds some potential now. Very good indeed, bordering on excellent. From a Port Styles tasting." 17.5+/20 (November 2007), Wine Doctor (online).

Reviews: "Lovely orange skins nose, together with nuts and figs. On the palate, it has finesse, elegance and such a sweet kickback. Massively enchanting and, now it is over the magic 20 years, perfection to drink."
Serena Sutcliffe , Cuisine & Wine Asia 2008

Very very dark. Sweet, spicy, liquorice nose. Very broad start to the palate and then dried fruits on the finish. Lots of firm tannins still. Still relatively embryonic. Heat on the finish. Lovely spice on the finish. Not the most stereotypically feminine Warre style of wine. Powerful finish. Almost brawny with some wild fruit and flower flavours on the nose.

Very rich, toffee, honey, treacle and poached pears and apricots. Very ripe but with sufficient acidity to hold it all together. Complex and multi-layered.

Barros Port, 1983

Vintage Port - in own presentation box

The Barros 1983 Vintage Port is a beautifully mature port ready for drinking now.

The Barros 1983 Vintage Port is a ruby coloured port wine with some tawny at the edges. On the nose it reveals an intense aroma with notes of wild berries, chocolate and figs. A traditional style of port, a little drier than most, it is full-bodied port with some heat from the alcohol making it a little angular. However, the tannins are soft and the wine has a long finish. Very good. 89/100 VWP tasting.

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1983

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification

This is a very fine 1983: far superior on the nose to the 1988. Damson, mulberry and a touch of earth. Fine definition. Perhaps even a little mint leaf. The palate is well-defined with rounded, plummy damson fruit. Not complex but there is a vigor and charm here. Fresh acidity. Becomes quite minerally in the finish. Drinking superbly now, but it will not keep much longer.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1983

*** 91 Points - Robert Parker ***
*** 94-96 Points - Wine Journal ***

Reviews: "Evolving in a positive fashion, 1983 is turning out to be a fine vintage for Mouton. Although not a big wine, this medium-weight Mouton displays an attractive nose of blackcurrants, black-cherries, olives, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with sweet but noticeable tannin in the finish, as well as beautiful elegance and complexity, this wine is close to reaching its plateau of maturity. I have always thought it resembled this property's 1966. It should last for another 20 years. Last tasted, 7/93." Robert Parker Wine Advocate 1993

Chateau Palmer, 1983

Margaux Grand Cru Classe

An exceptional wine scoring 97/100 Parker Points: "One of the superb wines of the vintage, the 1983 Palmer continues to display a saturated purple/garnet color, and an intense perfume of jammy black fruits, smoked meats, flowers, cedar, and Asian spices. Super-concentrated, powerful, and full-bodied, this huge, unctuously textured wine is approaching its plateau of maturity. Because of the high Merlot content it can easily be drunk now, yet promises to last for another 20-25 years. I remain convinced that the 1983 will be the most powerful Palmer since the compelling 1961. Last tasted 9/97" Parker, Bordeaux 3rd Ed.

Churchill's Port, 1983

Quinta do Agua Alta

Despite its thoroughly traditional-sounding name Churchill is the newest of the British-owned Port companies, founded in 1981 by J. Graham.

Quinta Agua Alta is named after the spring at the top of the vineyard and it produces wonderfully pure and fresh water that bubbles up through the granite rock below the thin top soil. Olives and figs grow in abundance around the vineyard which produces a quite stunninly powerful port.

Deep purple in colour with a mass of soft and concentrated fruit. There's plenty of tannin to give structure and a pleasing earthiness on the finish. This is the perfect way to round off a good dinner.

Fonseca Port, 1983

Vintage Port

An outstanding Port rating 92/100 from an outstanding vintage. Robert Parker writes of this port... "Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my opinion of Fonseca after it has had 7-10 years of age.
