La Tache 1986
    Domaine de la Romanee Conti
    Magnum (1)
    "This possesses a classic La T√Ęche nose with mature, elegant, fine and ultra-spicy aromas framed by ample amounts of sous bois that lead to medium weight and relatively finely detailed flavors that culminate in a long but still fairly tannic finish. This resembles the '87 in the sense that it's an open question as to whether time will ever fully resolve the underlying tannins. That said, between the '87 and the '86, I believe that there is a better chance of that happening with the '86 and overall, this is an undeniable success in the context of a difficult red Burgundy vintage." (89pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #45, Jan 2012)

    "A magical wine, as elegant as we have tasted, loaded with complex aromas an d flavors of cherry, currant, blackberry and cedar, all of which mesh together with subtlety. A triumph in every way." (98 pts. Wine Spectator, Aug. 1989)
