    Varietal: Bordeaux Red Blends

    Item no. 6255

    Winemaker's Notes:

    1986 produced a plentiful harvest of high quality-- deep garnet in color, concentrated but rather light, and with a remarkable tannin. In a word, it was a great combination of vintage 1945 and 1949. It is a very good vintage with considerable potential that is destined for a long evolution.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030. Last tasted 10/94.

    The Wine Advocate

    A firm, young wine. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberry and mint. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Still needs time.--Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2003.
