In contrast to the elegant, graceful, finesse-filled 1985 (which may turn out to resemble the classic 1953 in 15 years), the 1986 is a great wine, but so, so backward and tannic. This huge, dense, medium- to full-bodied wine exhibits tremendously rich, classic, weedy, black currant fruitiness with airing, and boasts the judicious use of new oak barrels. The tannins are elevated, but then this is a seriously concentrated, old-style, intense wine for long-term cellaring. The more I taste the 1986 Leoville-Barton, the more impressed I become with the wine's extraordinary power, density, and richness. However, it is not a wine for readers seeking immediate gratification. Although spectacular, it requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It will easily last for half a century. Last tasted 3/97

Wonderfully smooth with a balanced structure and subtle aromas and overtones.

Locked up tight with dense currant, spice and cedar flavors framed by tannins. On the finish there are hints of elegance and grace. Best to drink now to 1997. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Leoville-Barton 750ml
