While still quite beautiful it doesn’t possess the color, intensity or complexity it once had. Honestly a bit muted but opens up nicely. I feel like the 82 is still steaming along and the 86 just isn’t quite what it used to be. Nevertheless, it’s a damn good wine to be sure

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny color. Closed nose. Later in the evening (after wine had been opened for 9+ hours), notes of black cherry, tobacco leaf, cedar desk, gravel stone emerge. Very rich. Still a baby and evolving. Better tonight than the 82 Mouton. 95+

Richness, length, depth, soaring complexity, sweet red currants and blackberry, saddle leather, tobacco, and black truffle and damp earth. Fabulous.

Birth year. Plenty of stuffing left. A little light in the mid palate.

Deep dark scarlet. Opaque. Nose offers notes of black cherries, pencil lead, plum, anise and old cedar desk. With several hours of air it offers menthol, cranberries, and becomes more profound. Still young though with only secondary attributes. Big shoulders and masculine in the mouth but tannins have softened. Still needs more time to add complexity. Lots of structure and a bit of dryness on the finish. Will check in again in 5+ years.
