Another fresh and lively ‘86 Bordeaux, pencil lead, dark fruits, still pretty youthful and vibrant, great balancing acidity, solid structure, long finish, just a tad more power than the more elegant ‘86 Pichon Lalande from last night!!

Great youthful purple color still, rich dark fruits, quite structured still, long finish, really a terrific Pauillac from a somewhat tannic vintage, will easily last many more years!!

Drink now. Light mineral on the palate, smooth, nice finish. Still an enjoyable nose. To open recommend using a "twist up" or two-flat-pronged opener rather than a normal cork screw. Cork was slightly spongy and moist half way. This appears typical of older French wines. Enjoyed with New York Strip, with a Gorgonzola cream sauce, as well as Grilled chicken and Bowtie pasta, with a garlic cream sauce.

Definitely not the best vintage, a bit too much leather and not enough fruit.

A little VA never hurt anyone...pretty classic otherwise.
