Red Bordeaux - 1986 Vintage
Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1986. Robert Parker rating 100 points!
"...outstanding richness...graceful, harmonious texture...penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit...Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic...this Lafite has immense potential."
This sort of quality will never come cheap, but it's half the price of the 1982!
A second super Robert Parker 100 point score for Chateau Mouton Rothschild from the 1980's! An enthusiastic tasting comment from the great Robert Parker: "Comparable in quality but not style to the 1982, 1959 and 1945, A tour de force !"
One must not lose sight of the fact these wines are now 32 years old, yet still with a glorious drinking future over the next 30+ years. They were mainly sourced from private cellars and, although overall the levels are very good, some labels may have suffered a little with the passage of time. Due consideration to their presentation has been reflected in the prices, thus offering good savings to imbibers whilst still having lots in excellent condition to satisfy collectors.
MOST OF THE COMPLETE CASES OF WINES FROM 1988 ONWARDS ARE IN ORIGINAL WOODEN CASE
