Wine With Bok - 10/10 Stars

It had a hint of everything – iron, spice, cedar, cinnamon, musk and purple fruits and flowers. Its aromas were so long in an elegant way, but its palate was rich and expansive. This is a really powerful vintage of Margaux. Just one sip I can feel the overwhelming tannins in the wine, it was so much it doesn’t go away even after more than an hour of decanting. I suspect this is going to take another 30-50 years before it reaches it’s peak, while the fruits slowly morph itself to be more matured. Kudos to the effort of the wine maker – Paul Pontellier, whom I count as friend. (10/2014)

Robert Parker - 98 Points 

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. (1/2003)

Vinous - 98 Points

The 1986 Chateau Margaux was even more emotionally moving. Still incredibly youthful, it showed incredible focus and depth, all backed up by considerable structure. As hard as it may seem to believe, on this night the 1986 appeared to still be some years away from peaking. It was striking in every way. (2/2012)
