"The 1985 Ruchottes-Chambertin is a fabulous grand cru at the very peak of its powers. The spellbinding nose is one of those that momentarily stops the world from turning: pure red currant jam, orange rind, limestone cave and a touch of Earl Grey – just wonderful delineation and heavenly focus, a studied intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a vitamin-like purity and filigree tannins. Everything here is in a perfect place with a silky texture that is utterly seductive. It continues to offer a sweet, sensual finish to a wine that can only leave a stupid grin on your face. And you won’t care..."(98pts RP)
