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... Robert Parker

1986 vintage. Deep ruby with a black center. Small amount of rim variation. On the nose, black fruit, red fruit, vanilla, spice, olive, violets and a hint of cocoa. M+ body, m acid, m/m+ tannin that is round and noticeable. M+ balance! Black fruit and minerality on the palate. The finish lasted over 1 minute! Give at least 30 minutes or more to open up. An Elegant and lovely wine.
