The nose it at once rich and sophisticated but has a strange mix of gravel but touches of unspoiled kitty litter, rich red berry fruit. Plenty of richness on the mid palate but drys out pretty quickly, still rather rich.

Double Magnum. Wooow! What a difference a big bottle makes! From 3 ltr

One of the best bottle of this wine I had. Int nose garnet color. Dark fruit, red cherries, lead pencil all packed in an opulent nose. Full body, soft with green pepper notes on the long finish. Very good and ready to go.

We had two bottles. One was corked but the other one showed well. Deep garnet color, dark fruit, earth, and lead pencil nose. Full body with long finish. Time to drink.

A library release. Excellent for a 30 year old wine.

Mature redfruit aromas, similar flavors, good balancing acidity, medium-long finish, while not a blockbuster by any means, ABV is low and keeps it fresh, and tannins are almost non-existent for an '86 Bordeaux, lovely little wine!

Woody, dry, a little bit of cardboard because of age but in a good way. Can taste the earth. Can really feel the Merlot in this. Got some funk to it. Moments of George Clinton from his mid 70s period.

Good, not great, 1986, a bit tough like so many of the 1986s.
