Lot #159. La Louviere 1986

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 91 JG.
"In the decade of the 1980s, Château La Louvière (very quietly) made some really lovely red wines and the 1986 is one of my favorite vintages here from this era . . . . the ’86 La Louvière is drinking splendidly, offering up a fine nose of dark berries, cigar smoke, a touch of sealing wax, tobacco leaf, gamebird, coffee and just a hint of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and beautifully balanced, with a lovely core of fruit, modest tannins and impressive length and grip on the tangy and complex finish. Good juice by any measure." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #64, Aug 2016
Provenance: The Salée Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsule, very lightly scuffed label.
