Jane Anson: 95 Points

There is power still lurking here even if hidden by the brambled fruits and earthy black truffle and tar notes. As it opens in the glass the tannins begin to relax showing depth and complexity to the spice and leather backbone. Deeper and more powerful then the 1995 even though a decade older this is a juicy classic and balanced wine that offers so much pleasure. Harvest October 2 to 16 50% new oak.

Vinous: 93 Points

You cannot get more ?trad claret? that the 1986 Grand-Puy-Lacoste. From a Pauillac that takes time to reach its drinking plateau and a notorious vintage hellbent on testing the most patient Bordeaux-lover after 35-years it is finally waking up the idea that its raison d?être is to give us pleasure. This bottle was poured by the Emeline Borie when I visited the estate last June. It is a vintage that I have tasted three or four times previously thou
