1986 Chateau Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Bordeaux - 97 pts!
One of the big surprises of the tasting. Superbly structured, with breathtaking aromas of plums, chocolate and berries that follow through on the palate. Full-bodied, with full tannins and a long, alluring finish. Needs time.--Pichon-Lalande vertical. Best after 2002. WS Tasted 7 Times Since Bottling With Consistent NotesThe 1986 is the most tannic as well as the largest-framed Pichon-Lalande in over three decades. Whether it will ultimately eclipse the 1982 is doubtful but it will be longer-lived. Dark ruby/purple with a tight yet profound bouquet of cedar blackcurrants spicy oak and minerals this full-bodied deeply concentrated exceptionally well-balanced wine is atypically too brawny and big to drink young.
