100 points Decanter: "Wonderful, concentrated and still astonishingly young, this has brushes of violet aromatics rising above the tight cassis fruits and rich black truffle, and the classic menthol edging of a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Pauillac. We drank this over lunch and it was breathtaking, but were told that 24 hours later it had blossomed even further, so make sure you give this a serious amount of time in carafe to open up - something that gives you just a small clue as to how structured, layered and complex the wine we are dealing with here i...

95 points Decanter: "Vibrant deep colour, this has masses of spice box and minerals on the nose. Of course, the 86 was famous for its power and tannic structure and this is still muscular and foursquare, but the tannins are beginning to yield and soften. Very fresh acidity and classic sweet cassis fruit with notes of minerals, underbrush and tobacco. Very pure and long. Impressively, the wine had been decanted two hours previously and was still evolving in the glass more than an hour later. Tasted at Decanter Fine Wine Encounter 2015. (JS)" (12/2015) 9...

94 points John Gilman: "The 1986 vintage has produced a fine, fine example of Château Beychevelle, but this wine is still several years climbing and needs more time in the cellar to really blossom. The bouquet is deep, pure and vibrant, offering up scents of red and black cherries, cigar smoke, a fine base of soil tones, cedary oak, coffee and a nice topnote of tobacco leaf. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and starting to stir and show the first signs of the generosity to come, with a sappy core, fine soil inflection, ripe, firm tannins...

Vinous: "The 1986 l’Eglise-Clinet has a lovely bouquet that is very well defined with blackberry, camphor, cassis and violet. This is far more seductive and sensual than I anticipated. The palate is medium-bodied with stern tannins, very well balanced with savory-tinged dark berry fruits. It feels cohesive and fresh towards the dry finish that abruptly scarpers out of the door. (NM)" (07/2019)

92 points Wine Advocate: "For L'Arrosee, this vintage has taken an atypically long time to round into shape. It has always possessed considerable power as well as a muscular, concentrated style and hefty tannin. Beginning to shed its tannin, it reveals an intriguing dusty herb, black cherry, kirsch, and mineral-scented nose, with subtle vanillin from new oak in the background. There are medium-bodied, concentrated flavors with some firm tannin, but by and large this is a very accessible wine. It remains youthful, with only a hint of amber at the edge of ...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful, magnificent, complex and rich, with generous black cherry, currant and vanilla aromas and flavors shining through the tough tannins, turning a bit chocolatey on the finish. Has everything it needs to age classically." (06/1989) Wine Advocate: "The 1986 has a deep ruby/garnet color, and a spicy bouquet of toasty new oak, rich, plummy fruit, and minerals. This is followed by a wine that is full bodied and intense, with impressive extract, and tremendous power and persistence in its finish. It does not have the opulenc...

95 points Decanter: "Marvellous old Bordeaux with delicate cassis, graphite, and faded violet nuances. A legendary wine for this estate, equal to the 1982 but ageing better. (ID)" (10/2014) 95 points Wine Advocate: "Now at 30 years of age, there is a gulf between the two Pichons in this vintage that no longer exists. The 1986 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has long been one of the best wines from the estate alongside the 1982 (even if the first bottle was a little oxidized). The second bottle was representative. It has a classic pencil-lead, ce...

91 points John Gilman: "The 1986 Château Meyney has been one of the great values of the vintage since its release and it has fulfilled all of its early promise and continues to cruise along very well indeed. To give younger readers some idea of just how good a value this wine was on release, I sold it for $11.99 a bottle and one received 10% off if they bought a case. Needless to say, I sold a ton of cases of this wine. Today, it is drinking very nicely, offering up a complex bouquet of cassis, dark berries, a nice touch of new leather, tobacco leaf, gra...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 1986 Mouton-Rothschild is a behemoth that almost has a California-like richness and sweetness of fruit. Offering incredible yet classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, lead pencil shavings, and wood smoke, this beauty starts out reticent and backward (which is mind blowing for a wine that’s 32 years old) yet opens up gorgeously with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, rich and unctuous, yet still incredibly pure and lively, it’s a sensational, benchmark Bordeaux that probably has another 2+ decade...

94 points Wine Advocate: "The 1986 Lynch Bages has a knockout bouquet that wraps its arms around you with all its loveliness: pure black cherries, mint and cedar, even a touch of glycerine still there. Vibrant and youthful. The palate is beautifully balanced, crisp and taut, linear but very precise with a fine bead of acidity. You just fall for the harmony of this Lynch Bages, the intensity of fruit that seems undiminished on the finish. Is it up there with the 1989 and 1990? Maybe not, but it is not far behind. Frankly this Lynch Bages is a 1986 Claret ...

This is the second wine of Leoville-Las Cases. Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate: "The quality level of the second wine of Leoville-Las Cases is unquestionably better than some of Bordeaux's famed 1855 classification's second- and third-growths," while Neal Martin agrees: "Others may disagree, but I would rate the second wine Clos du Marquis as the best in Bordeaux. The wine has a long history, initiated in 1904 under the aegis of Théophile Skawinski with the 1902 vintage, portending the proliferation of second wines in the 1980's. The wine is sourced f...

1986 Potensac, Medoc
Back In Stock!
From Robert Parker…'Pontensac made an excellent wine in 1986. In fact, in a blind tasting the wine could easily be confused with a classified growth. Deep ruby/purple in color, with an elegant, complex bouquet of herbs, minerals, spicy oak, and black currants, this medium-bodied wine displays rich, well-focused fruit and plenty of tannin in the finish, but an overall harmony and complexity that is rare in a Cru Bourgeois.' (Nov. 1990)
Price: $69.99

90 points Wine Spectator: "Like a young Port, a powerful and concentrated wine for long-term aging. Very deep ruby color, with rich, spicy vanilla aromas, full body and lots of fruit flavors; tannic but well integrated, with a long finish. (JS)" (11/1989)
