WS 93
Wine Spectator, May 1989
Remarkably complex with rich concentrated tannic currant spice and anise flavors wrapped in smoky cedary oak that gets tastier with every sip. It's best to wait until this one can fully develop in 1997 or '98.

The 1986 Beychevelle, which I tasted from magnum at the château, has what you might describe as a light-hearted nose with joie-de-vivre. Even from a larger format, among many 1986s tasted, this is one of the most approachable with wild strawberry, mulberry, cola and graphite aromas that unfurl in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with spice and clove on the entry. It comes across as fleshier than I was anticipating and atypically for the vintage, tapering towards the finish. Arguably rustic compared to some of its Saint Julien bedfellows, it nonetheless has charm and a sense of classicism. Tasted July 2016. - Neal Martin
