Lot #21. Lynch-Bages 1986

Description: Consists of 8 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"The 1986 is finally emerging from the dormant stage that many of the wines from this vintage (especially the Medocs) have been going through. It is a full-bodied, still backward wine that will appeal to classicists and old line traditionalists given its firm structure and austere tannins. Nevertheless, the color is a healthy deep garnet and the wine exhibits wonderful freshness along with notes of underbrush, damp earth, black currants, cedar and new saddle leather. Well-balanced with good depth, medium to full body, and a tannic (although not excessively so) finish . . . . It will be one of those rare wines that will last 40+ years." Wine Advocate #196, Aug 2011
Provenance: The Hennepin Cellar
Notes: 4 base neck, 1 very top shoulder, 2 slightly recessed corks, 1 slightly protruding cork, lightly scuffed capsules, 1 very lightly wrinkled label, 1 very lightly marked label.
