Chateau Les Templiers, 1985

Lalande de Pomerol

Bordeaux, in the south-west of France, needs little introduction to anyone with an interest in wine. One of the world's most prolific wine regions, it also manages to rank among the most famous and prestigious. The secrets of Bordeaux's wine success (other than magical Bordeaux Blend) are its three trump cards: diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines are the dry, medium-bodied reds that made the region famous.

Chateau Lynch-Bages, 1985

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

*** 92 Points - Parker ***

"The 1985 has been totally disarming, seductive, and sexy since birth. Its corpulence, medium to full-bodied personality, low acidity, attractive silkiness, and copious quantities of herb-tinged cassis fruit have always made this wine a winner. It is beginning to display a few signs that it is at its peak of maturity and will not get any better. In fact, it might be best consumed over the next 5-10 years. As it sat in the glass, the 1985 faded more than any other vintage, but its immense up-front pleasure cannot be denied. This is a wine to decant right before serving, and not to linger over.

Chateau Patache d'Aux, 1985

Medoc
Label Torn - Good Level

The 1985 Chateau Patache d'Aux comes from a great year in the Medoc. It displays a deep garnet color with slight browning on the edges with mature black fruit on the nose and palate. A nicely resolved wine that still lives on and is a pleasure to drink.

Serving suggestions:
This bottle will need decanting in order to remove sediment and aerate the wine to release its aromas. Serve at room temperature with sirloin steak, roast beef, braised or grilled lamb. It is perfect with soft cheeses such as brie or soft goat cheese as well as hard cheeses such as cheddar, parmigiano reggiano, pecorino or aged manchego.

Ferreira, 1985

Ferreira Vintage Port

This Port is now beginning to reach its full maturity and is ready for drinking. As it ages further, it will begin to develop gently into a more tawny style Port. This Port should probably be drunk over the next few years although it is still showing remarkable balance and finesse.
