With greater evidence of botrytis than the colossal 1983 but less power and alcohol the 1986 d'Yquem tastes reminiscent of the 1975 only more precocious. Several highly respected Bordeaux negociants who are d'Yquem enthusiasts had claimed the 1986 d'Yquem was the greatest wine produced at the property since the legendary 1937. However after the release of the 1988 they concluded that the 1988 surpassed even the 1986. The 1986's enthralling bouquet of pineapples sauteed hazelnuts vanillin and ripe apricots is breathtaking. Compellingly concentrated its breadth as well as depth of flavor seemingly know no limits. This full-bodied powerful yet impeccably elegant d'Yquem should provide memorable drinking for 40-55 more years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2040. Last tasted 7/93.
