1986 CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1986

After a successful half-decade, the 1986 vintage is in turn in the line of great vintages. It is a great vintage for ageing, as it is very well structured and suitable for a long ageing period. The 1986 harvest was very abundant and of high quality thanks to a beautiful spring season and a dry summer. Château Lafite Rothschild 1986 is a black wine, very concentrated without being heavy, with a marked tannic dominance.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Tasted at the château, the 1986 Lafite-Rothschild continues to offer an exquisite bouquet at 30 years of age. This is beautifully defined, still full of energy, with copious blackberry, clove, leather and graphite aromas that seem to gain momentum in the glass. The palate is extremely well balanced with a crystalline quality, filigree tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, a quintessential Lafite-Rothschild with a sense of energy and focus undiminished by time. This finish displays immense purity and refinement, one of the most mineral-driven Lafites that I have encountered, whilst the aftertaste seems to linger for over one minute. It must rank as one of the finest wines from the estate. Tasted July 2016. To drink between 2016 and 2046.
