Margaux Bordeaux Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 94 While not as powerful and concentrated as the 1986, 1983, or 1982, the 1985 Margaux is more charming and, at present, more complex than those more backward vintages. The color is a healthy dark ruby/purple. The seductive nose offers copious quantities of lavishly ripe black berry and cassis fruit intermixed with toasty oak and floral scents. This rich, expansive, and velvety-textured wine has developed more length, and additional flavor dimensions over the last several years. It has always been a remarkably approachable and enjoyable wine, but it appears to be taking on more character and quality than I ever imagined. It is one of the most delicious and seductively opulent Margauxs of the last two decades. I consistently underestimated this wine when young. It gets better every time I re-taste it, which happens with increasing frequency. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted 10/97.

    Young, exuberant and exciting. Fabulously well integrated with raspberry, mint and violet character. Full-bodied with loads of fine tannins. Try after 1998.--The Bordeaux 50. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1985 Margaux, Chateau 750ml
