Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 95

The 1986 is the most tannic, as well as the largest-framed Pichon-Lalande in over three decades. Whether it will ultimately eclipse the 1982 is doubtful, but it will be longer-lived. Dark ruby/purple, with a tight yet profound bouquet of cedar, blackcurrants, spicy oak, and minerals, this full-bodied, deeply concentrated, exceptionally well-balanced wine is, atypically, too brawny and big to drink young.

One of the big surprises of the tasting. Superbly structured, with breathtaking aromas of plums, chocolate and berries that follow through on the palate. Full-bodied, with full tannins and a long, alluring finish. Needs time.--Pichon-Lalande vertical.

Beautifully balanced. Drinking perfectly right now. Cedar, licorice,tobacco, earthy all backed by silky fruit. Everything was so well integrated.

Drinking beautifully with no sign of wearing out; smooth and delicious, but with still a twinge of tannic bite; long finish
