1986 Domaine de Baraillon 37 Year Old K&L Exclusive Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Top Pick!
Price: $129.99

Joël Taluau was a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--which he hadn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and this one is really coming into its own.

1986 Domaine Séailles 34 Year Old Ténarèze Armagnac (700ml)
Top Pick!
This Armagnac, produced from a small estate plot, was distilled in 1986 and aged for 34 years in 400L barrels before being bottled at 46% ABV. From the importer: "Domaine Séailles is one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in the Côtes de Gascogne region of Southwest France. A family-owned estate since 1961, Séailles is now run by Jean Labérenne, who lead the domaine to Ecocert organic certification in 1997, swearing off all chemical fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, and synthetic chemical products. Located in the town of Ténarèze, which is uniqu...

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...

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...

94 points Wine Spectator: "A powerful, rich wine as good as many cru classés. Inky color and intense vanilla, violet and cassis aromas; full-bodied, with great balance, full but integrated tannins and a long finish. (JS)" (11/1989) Jancis Robinson: "Very deep crimson. Minerals and cassis on the nose. Surely higher volatility than most vintages? A hint of port! Sweet start and lots of rigour and concentration. A fine backbone on this wine! Rather rustic tannins on the finish but there is (just) enough stuffing to convince me that it will last quite a bi...

1986 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (bin-soiled)
Back In Stock!
92 points Wine Advocate: "The 1986 Rauzan-Segla is held up as one of the best wines of that decade. Now at 30 years old, it has an initially tightly wound bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass. It eventually offers exquisite aromas of small red cherries, cranberry jus, confit dates and briary, a hint of sandalwood tucked underneath. You would never describe the aromatics as "explosive" but it seems to gain in intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly savory entry. There is good structure here, but there is a sweet seam of fig and candi...

97 points Jane Anson: "Both vintages of Gruaud-Larose absolutely stand out in this lineup, and I recommend them both for thoroughly enjoyable drinking today. This was pretty monolithic when young and evolved very slowly. It's still showing tons of black fruits with tobacco, coffee and truffle. Chewy tannins are still evident, with everything clearly signposting a great vintage from legendary winemaker Georges Pauli. 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend. (for Decanter)" (05/2019) 95 points Wine Advocate: "Still remarkably youthful, my most recent bottle ...
Price: $279.99

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. (JS)" (12/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 1986 Cos d’Estournel re...

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)
Price: $109.99

93 points Vinous: "You cannot get more “trad claret” that the 1986 Grand-Puy-Lacoste. From a Pauillac that takes time to reach its drinking plateau and a notorious vintage hellbent on testing the most patient Bordeaux-lover, after 35-years, it is finally waking up the idea that its raison d’être is to give us pleasure. This bottle was poured by the Emeline Borie when I visited the estate last June. It is a vintage that I have tasted three or four times previously, though not for five years. Many prefer to serve the ’82 at the moment, and Vinous readers w...

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1986 Haut-Bages Libéral, Pauillac (92JG, 91WS, 90RP). John Gilman: "The 1986 vintage at Haut Bages Libéral is really outstanding and this has to be one of the great sleepers to be found in the Left Bank in this fine year. The bouquet is deep, pure and vibrant, offering up scents of cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, a bit of tariness, gravelly soil tones and a discreet base of smoky new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite tangy, with lovely focus and grip, a good core and a long, ripely tannic and well-balanced finish. This is still a few years away from really fully blossoming, but it is not a bad drink today by any stretch of the imagination." (08/2016)
Starting Bid: $360.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1986 Figeac, St-Émilion (93JR). Jancis Robinson: "The 1986 Château Figeac is one of the finest wines of the Right Bank in this vintage and it starting to really drink beautifully at age thirty-three. The bouquet is deep, pure and utterly classical Figeac in its mix of red and black cherries, a touch of menthol, cigar smoke, chocolate, a lovely base of soil tones, black truffles, a whisper of vanillin oak and a topnote of nutskin. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and pure on the attack, with a very good core of fruit, fine focus and grip and still a touch of moderate tannin perking up the beautifully balanced and complex finish. This is an outstanding Figeac with decades of life still ahead of it." (10/2020)
Current Bid: $490.88

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1986 Clerc-Milon, Pauillac (97WS, 92JA). Wine Spectator: "Seductively rich and supple with layers of elegant plum, cherry and currant flavors that are beautifully defined before the tannins kick in on the finish. The notes linger on and on. * Wine #2, Top 100 Wines of 1989*" (05/1989)
Current Bid: $600.00
