Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Pauillac 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review<br/>Rated 94<br/>Just now emerging from a very clumsy dormant period, Pichon-Lalande's dense ruby/purple-colored 1986 still has the color of a 4 or 5 year old wine. This is the most tannic and backward Pichon-Lalande after 1975 and before 1996. The wine was completely closed down until just recently. The wine shows notes of cedar, black currants, earth, spice box, and licorice, followed by a medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, intense palate with a still noticeable tannic structure, a relatively big, muscular style for Pichon-Lalande. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. (Bordeaux Book, 4th Edition Jan 2003)
