1986 Vintage
Jancis Robinson
When to drink: 1997 to 2017
41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc . Sweeter and more plummy on the nose than the 1985. More cedary but also cassis and dark chocolate/mocha. Seems far more youthful than the 1985. More primary dark fruit. Firmer, fuller and less perfumed but still with a fine freshness. Fine-grained tannins still have some grip though they taste fully ripe. More powerful than the 1985, less scented but more fruit. Grip on the finish is just a little dry. Julia Harding MW
