Author: Robert Parker
An extraordinary success for this estate (and also the finest wine they produced in the decade of the eighties), the 1986 remains extremely backward. It reveals an impressively saturated dark purple color, followed by a tight but promising nose of sweet blackberries, cassis, licorice, earth, and smoke. Full-bodied and excruciatingly tannic, with layers of concentration, this exceptionally endowed wine is still an infant in terms of its evolution.

Displaying a deep ruby colour with an orange peel rim, a lovely aroma of ripe cherry, violets and crushed stones delicately balanced with some oaky secondary well integrated nouances. The wine develops in the mouth with a powerful sweet and velvety feel of cherries and secondary flavours of mushrooms prunes and liquorice. The finish is fairly long and balanced, sweet and smooth.
