    La Tache 1985
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    1(3.5cm), 1(4cm), 1spc, owc, #013008-013019
    Bottle (12)
    "...the '85 is a fine La T√Ęche but well short of profound with lovely spice but completely mature aromas and nicely complex, fully resolved flavors and a long, fine and pure finish. There is no benefit to holding the '85 further and even from magnum format, I would be inclined to begin looking for occasions to enjoy it; to be clear, it's not in decline but it is as good as it's ever going to be." (90pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, May 2010)

    "A highly complex nose offers lovely spice on the completely mature aromas with equally complex and fully resolved medium-bodied flavors that deliver a long, fine and pure finish." (90 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #45, Jan. 2012)

    "Red to brown center, orange edge. Seductive fruit and spice bouquet, with fleeting notes of cherry, kirsch and rose. Warm and spicy on the palate, elegant yet sumptuous, showing fine length and harmony." (93 pts. BS, Wine Spectator, June 2006)
