Description

    Chateau Margaux 1986
    Margaux
    2bn, 2ts, 3lnl, 1tc, 2sdc
    Bottle (12)
    "A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic, backward Margauxs of the last 50 years, the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration, the aromatics become striking, with notes of smoke, toast, creme de cassis, mineral, and white flowers. Very full-bodied, with high but sweet tannin, great purity, and a very masculine, full-bodied style, this wine should prove nearly immortal in terms of its aging potential." (98pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 4th Ed., Jan 2003)
