Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1986 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety:

Has been in private cellar since acquiring, perfect condition, extremely rare for this wine.

Very intense deep garnet colour with a ripe classical nose. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with marvellously silky black fruits and pronouced, velvety tannins. Very intense and very Lafite.

WA - The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required.
Robert M. Parker, Jr. - Wine Advocate Issue#Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition - Jan 1998
