Chateau Margaux, 1984

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 93-95 Points - Wine Journal ***

"A sensational bottle that simply defied every rule about Bordeaux. Intense liquorish, cherry liqueur nose: very rich. Thick exotic, rounded palate with super-ripe Merlot. Reminds me of a Petrus! Very complex with spicy, fleshy finish. This bottle is high-toned, succulent and quite delicious. Beyond my wildest expectations. " Neil Martin, Wine Journal 2004

D'Oliveiras Madeira, 1984

Boal Madeira

"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)

Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.

Valtellina, 1984

Enologia Valtelinese - Il Grappolo

Valtellina is one of Italy’s most dramatic wine regions, located in Lombardy, the vineyards are located on steep mountains. The principal grape variety is Chiavennasca (the local name for Piedmont’s Nebbiolo and an Italian grape varietal that has been cultivated since medieval times here). The DOCG wines are generally comprised of at least 90% Chiavennasca and then blended with other quality local grapes like Brugnola, Rossola, Pignola. Then there is a DOC Valtellina Rosso (also called Rosso di Valtellina DOC) which requires at least 80% of the blend be Chiavennasca and does not have minimum ageing requirements.

Kopke Port, 1984

Colheita Port

*** 93 Points Mark Squires Wine Advocate ***

Intense amber colour. Full and concentrated nose, dominated by the abundance of dried fruits, spices notes and a subtle touch of vanilla. Extremely refined in the mouth, elegant, with a notable character and a pleasant freshness. Long and persistent finish.

"Simply lovely, this surely lacks the concentration of some of the older wines here, but it is no slouch and it has that concentrated flavor nuance in the background. Plus, it is gracious and graceful, with velvety texture and a soft, round feel. Those who adore them on the somewhat younger, less intense side can get some validation here, as this sunny wine is simply a delight to drink.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1984

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe - high shoulder, label bin soiled

94 points James Suckling
Orange peel, stewed tea and slight metallic undertone. Full-bodied, with a tangy and funky undertone. Not completely clean, but wonderful. (3/2012)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The personality of Lafite comes through in the 1984 vintage. An elegant bouquet of herbaceous, cedary fruit is first class. New oak dominates the palate and some hard tannins exhibit a dryness at the finish. The 1984 is a light but well-balanced wine. (RP) (1/1998)

Chateau Latour , 1984

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

Garnet core with degradated brick rim. A nose has moderate intensity: roasted herbs, truffles and black rustic fruit. More vigour and intensity than Mouton. The palate is well-knit with typical pencil-lead, cedar flavours.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild , 1984

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe, Level vts, label intact, slightly stained

During the decade of the eighties, Mouton was the hottest first-growth in Pauillac. The 1984, which is almost 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, will be one of the longest-lived wines of this vintage. The wine is full bodied, tannic, concentrated, and rich in extract. It should have a surprisingly long life.

Chateau Yquem, 1984

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

Reviews "1984 is a surprisingly good year made under very trying conditions. D'Yquem began its harvest on October 15th and made its last pass through the vineyards on November 13th. Seventy-five percent of the crop was retained for d'Yquem. The wine at present exhibits a great deal of smoky oak in its bouquet, which is also filled with scents of smoked almonds, cooked pineapples, and honey and caramel. In the mouth, the wine is less flamboyant, with less glycerin and power than usual, but it is still a rich, full-bodied d'Yquem with a great deal of personality and character." ERobert Parker
