The 1986 Margaux continues to be the most powerful, tannic, and muscular Margaux made in decades. One wonders if the 1928 or 1945 had as much power and depth as the 1986? The black/ruby/purple color reveals no sign of age. The reluctant nose offers up aromas of smoky, toasty new oak and black currants, as well as a few flowers. The wine is mammoth, with extraordinary extract, superb balance, and a frightfully tannic finish. This is a Margaux of immense stature, made in a masculine, full-bodied style that is in complete contrast to the 1990. It should prove nearly immortal in terms of aging potential, but will it have the awesome potential I first predicted? Last tasted 12/96

Highly evolved and aromatically enticing, this is ready to drink but can easily be held for another decade.

Racy and powerful. Black color. Currants, tar and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with firm tannins. Slightly hollow center palate--a bit of a letdown. Better with more bottle age.--Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2003. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Margaux, Chateau 1500ml

A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic backward Margauxs of the last 50 years the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration the aromatics become striking with notes of smoke toast creme de cassis mineral and white flowers. Very full-bodied with high but sweet tannin great purity and a very masculine full-bodied style this wine should prove n
