A magnificent example of Chateau Margaux and one of the most tannic backward Margauxs of the last 50 years the 1986 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. The color is still a dense ruby/purple with just a hint of lightening at the rim. With several hours of aeration the aromatics become striking with notes of smoke toast creme de cassis mineral and white flowers. Very full-bodied with high but sweet tannin great purity and a very masculine full-bodied style this wine should prove nearly immortal in terms of its aging potential. It is beginning to budge from its infantile stage and approach adolescence. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2050. Last tasted 12/02.

Racy and powerful. Black color. Currants tar and dried herbs. Full-bodied with firm tannins. Slightly hollow center palate--a bit of a letdown. Better with more bottle age.--Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2003. -JS
