Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 2ème Cru Classé 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker awards this legendary wine 96 points and writes: “Tasted 7 Times Since Bottling With Consistent Notes. The 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. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2015.”

This is one serious Bordeax. Bursting with flavor. If you can find some. Let me know!!!

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... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1500ml
