DescriptionChateau Pichon Lalande 1986
"The 1986 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande has long been one of the best wines from the estate alongside the 1982... It has a classic pencil-lead, cedar-infused nose that rockets from the glass, a subtle floral note developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, a pinch of white pepper and cedar, structured compared to coeval vintages and perhaps further along its drinking plateau than previous examples." (95 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #228, Dec. 2016)
"This is the most tannic and backward Pichon-Lalande after 1975 and before 1996. The wine was completely closed down until just recently. The wine shows notes of cedar, black currants, earth, spice box, and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, intense palate with a still noticeable tannic structure, a relatively big, muscular style for Pichon-Lalande." (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #95, Oct. 1994)
