Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1986
Pauillac, 1er Cru Classe
u: one into neck, one bottom neck, scuffed capsules
"The 1986 possesses outstanding richness, a deep color, medium body, a graceful, harmonious texture, and superb length. The penetrating fragrance of cedar, chestnuts, minerals, and rich fruit is a hallmark of this wine. Powerful, dense, rich, and tannic, as well as medium to full-bodied, with awesome extraction of fruit, this Lafite has immense potential. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030." R. Parker, 100 pts. 01/98
