Expert Reviews

93 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

5.3 g/l total acidity; 13.1% alcohol):  Garnet-tinged dark ruby-red.  Black fruits, candied red cherry, licorice, minerals, cedar and iron on the complex, still-reticent nose.  Then more approachable on the palate, displaying a lovely restrained sweetness to the blackberry and blueberry fruit and excellent lift and clarity from lively acidity and solid underlying minerality.  The finish features noble, fine-grained tannins and subtle persistence.  An unusually accessible 1986 but very typical of the fleshy Lynch-Bages personality, this boasts lovely concentration and sneaky depth.  Very well done.
