    Description

    Chateau Margaux 1986
    Margaux
    5bn, owc
    Bottle (12)

    Property of a New England gentleman. All wines sourced carefully as part of an investment portfolio and stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled cellar.

    "The 1986 Chateau Margaux was even more emotionally moving. Still incredibly youthful, it showed incredible focus and depth, all backed up by considerable structure. As hard as it may seem to believe, on this night the 1986 appeared to still be some years away from peaking. It was striking in every way." (98+ pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb. 2012)

    "The 1986 Chateau Margaux is one of the dark horses of the vintage. It has an exquisite bouquet that is now fully mature, with a mixture of red and black fruit, violets, pastilles and hints of cold stone. It blossoms in the glass, gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a more robust Margaux as you would expect given the vintage, clearly with firm backbone, more straight-laced than the 1985 or 1989. Yet there is wonderful delineation and focus here. If you seek strictness and classicism in a wine, then this is the place to come, plus there is superb mineralité and tension on the ferrous finish. Perhaps a little overlooked in recent years, the 1986 Margaux comes highly recommended for those who love the property. This is a wine finally coming of age." (97 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #228, Dec. 2016)
