1986 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The wine shows plum, fig, cherry, earthy, mineral notes and medium body, but the elevated tannins in the finish are distracting. Nevertheless, the wine has a youthfulness and vigor that make it far less evolved than its more seductive older siblings, the 1983 and 1985.
Good ruby color. Aromas of leather, berry and horse. Slight raisin character. Full-bodied, with fine tannins.
