Why We Love It

Known by a number of names over the years, this estate was one of the original Grand Cru growths in the 1855 classification. Leveraging the storied terroir and years of making expertise, the chateau puts out big, powerful wines showing some of the best of what Bordeaux has to offer.

1986 was an overall good vintage in Bordeaux, especially in Pauillac and several other Left Bank appellations. The resulting wines from the area were strong, highly tannic wines with great ageing potential, especially for Cabernet Sauvignon-heavy wines like this one. 

A great wine from a storied family, you can expect a soft, silky texture as those big Bordeaux tannins have mellowed over the last 35+ years, along with rich fruit and the wonderful complexity added by age. 


Capsule Status: Intact

Label Quality: Excellent

Ullage: Mid-shoulder

Important Notes on Cabinet Wines

Many of the wines we sell in the Cabinet are from old vintages. Ageing can have truly wonderful effects on wine. Those effects are influenced by a range of factors, both within and outside the bottle, meaning two bottles from the same vintage may have different profiles. If you are new to older wines—and if so, welcome!—please keep in mind that you may encounter a range of flavours and aromas not found in younger wines.
