1985 Vintage SPECIAL PROMOTION TODAY

Today you are in for a treat. I am delighted to offer you a special bundle offer of Mouton Baronne Philippe and Leoville Barton, 2 charming Bordeaux wines from 1985. Very GOOD PRICE! You won’t want to miss it at all. Today bundle also represent a wonderfully consistent and seductive vintage with excellent wines at all levels. Most wine experts including me will agree 80’s wines are impressive! What are you waiting for?

#1 IN A 1985 BLIND TASTING

Leoville Barton, from St Julien is a second growth wine. A structured Bordeaux wine with tannin, Leoville Barton is often known as the traditional, masculine and beefy wine.

You might not hear me talk a lot about Leoville Barton but this 1985 bottle really caught my attention! I hosted a 1985 blind tasting, with 15 bottles including some Mouton Rothschild and Margaux, this one came up #1 consensus vote! Surprising! What makes Leoville Barton 1985 so special? I would really say it is hedonistic, once you have a glass of it, you will be hooked with the rich and sumptuous taste, slightly sharp and acidic, still relatively young as tannins are still intact, although the wine tasted very lively, the charm took my heart away!

Another attractive wine in today bundle has to be Mouton Baronne Philippe 1985, from Pauillac. If you have good memory, you will remember in my previous newsletter where I shared I was totally caught off guard with Mouton Baronne Philippe 1976.

This 39 years old wine possessed all characters of Mouton Rothschild 1976 (5 star rating by me in Vivino), maybe it just lacked a little bit of finesse only…but the price is totally irresistible!

When one thinks of a fifth growth wine, one has no expectations. Mouton Baronne Philippe in the 60s to 80s are simply awesome.

Those who have drank the Mouton Baronne Philippe 1961 with me before would have agreed that it’s one of the best wines to drink, and I completely sold out all these gems immediately after my customers drank them. To find another batch of 1961, it will be close to impossible even with my connection, so these gems are really once sold, forever gone! I believe Mouton Baronne Philippe 1985 in its charming vintage year will not disappoint you at all!


Fascinating changes in the bordeaux

When the Medoc property was purchased by the Baron in 1934, it was known as Chateau Mouton d’Armailhacq. It was the Baron who changed the name to Chateau d’Armailhac. In fact, this Bordeaux wine property has gone through numerous name changes over the years including; Chateau Mouton-Baron Philippe, (1956–1973), Mouton Baronne (1974–1978) and even Chateau Mouton-Baronne-Philippe from 1979 until 1988. In 1989, the label was changed to the name we know the wine as today, Chateau d’Armailhac.

Come my friends, get yourself these 2 best aged bottle of 1985 at a special bundle price of $479 (usual price $510). If you buy Leoville Barton 1985 elsewhere it would have cost you $315 and not to mention Mouton Baronne Philippe 1985 is not readily available in Singapore only except through Fine Wines SG.

“1996 RIGHT BANK SURPRISE..

I always have an impression that right bank Bordeaux 1996 was a poor vintage, so I always avoided buying any right bank wines, until this one that came as an irresistible offer. Upon opening, I was frustrated already! Borderline maderization. I immediately decanted it and see if I can salvage the bad nose. It worked! An hour later most bad nose has cleared off and I was enjoying my bottle, which consisted loads of stewed cherries and dark berries. Pretty enjoyable.”

All Appellations 1990

“I had a tasting event with my customers today with a horizontal Bordeaux 1990 wines, 1 bottle of white, 12 bottles of red and 1 bottle of Barsac. Will follow up with an individual bottle review soon. Fasten your seatbelt, this is going to be surprise!”

Château Petit Village Pomerol 1969

“A DRINKABLE 1969!

I was having very low expectations of this bottle as my knowledge of Petit Village was not good enough, and 1969 was a poor vintage. Certainly not for a good Pomerol which can certainly age as long as a human being. Great vegetal and coffee on the nose. The drink was really pleasant and smooth, with all kinds of simple yet complex flavor encapsulating my palette.”

“VERTICAL ROUSSEAU CLOS ST JACQUES

We finally managed to arrange for a vertical tasting of Armand Rousseau Clos St Jacques with vintages of 62, 93, 96, 99, 01, 02, 04, 08 present. Takeaway was that Rousseau CsJ is extremely consistent throughout vintages. Consensus vote was 96 as #1, 93 as #2 and 01 as #3.

WOTN for me, I gave it a 100 points! Better than 93, with more richness, superb balance, very matured and the tannins are fully integrated into the wine. One of the best nose of sous bois.”

My #2 tonight. The color was very dark, totally misleading. Extremely balanced, extremely gorgeous & rich wine, to find fault? Just a tinge diluted.”

The 2 bottles of 62 I brought were flawed on the nose, corked & caramelized. But the palette was still decent, and I can relate this 53 year old style consistently with modern vintages. No change!”

This was my #4 of the night, surprisingly I chose this vintage over 99! But I did go back and forth to confirm. Nose turned me off with cardboard but palette wise extremely balanced. Poor vintage? Nope!”
