1985 Calon Segur ($280)
1985 Chateau Nenin ($250)
1985 Chasse Spleen ($180)
TOP 5 REASONS WHY YOU MUST TASTE THEM!
1) Decanter Magazine gave this vintage a perfect 5/5 star!
The 1985 vintage for Bordeaux was an absolute stand-out, a vintage of the decade. Same weather conditions as 1982. Most appellations, particularly the top estates, managed to produce brilliant reds with elegance and exquisitely balanced. Possibly even more elegant than the 1982 vintage.
2) 1985 Lafite Rothschild
A brilliant synthesis of the vintage’s plush and suave personality and the inimitable elegance of Lafite. If you have not tasted a Lafite Rothschild First Growth before…This is one Lafite you should not miss tasting. Hear what wine critics are saying.
“This is so beautiful now and exhibits real aged-Bordeaux character”
“One of my favourites of the vintage and its streets away from Latour”
“Impressive & at its peak! This is one Lafite that will dance on your palate”
3) 1985 Calon Segur
Calon-Ségur made a very nice example of the 1985 vintage, with the merlot component here giving the wine a very velvety texture. One of the sleepers of the vintage and ready to drink.
James Suckling calls this wine
“Very subtle and complex….beautifully resolved tannins that were as fine as silk”
Bok gave this wine a 9.5/10 Stars
“A sip and it’s hard not to fall in love with Calon Segur, the kind of maturity and softness is not easily replicable elsewhere…”
4) 1985 Chateau Nenin
According to the Delon family, Château Nénin is the epitome of a great Pomerol “vin de garde” (wine for laying down). It combines power and elegance, complexity and balance, purity and refinement. After 37 years, you will be suprised by the passive evolution of this wine.
5) 1985 Chasse-Spleen
During the 1970s and ’80s, Chasse-Spleen often produced wines that were as good as a third growth. Robert Parker ranked this estate’s 1985 vintage as one of the “past glories,” saying: “One of the two finest estates of Moulis (the other being Poujeaux).”
