1986 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac: quoted from Robert parker: "This is a 100-point wine. Still incredibly youthful, but beginning to show some cedar wood, graphite and blackcurrant fruit, the wine is medium-bodied, as many Lafites are, but stunningly concentrated and relatively light on its feet. There is still tannin to resolve, and the wine seems a good decade away from hitting full maturity, which is rather remarkable since it is already 30 years of age!"
Based on last tasting in September 2020, this beautiful label still requires few hours to breath, then start to shine up to a medium to full bodied, very elegant, black cherry, cedar and velvety palate.
Rating: 100 points (highest), average 95 to 98 points.
Weight: 750ml (bottle) / Label: a light torn and tear on the labels (which is not uncommon for this vintage of wine)
