TASTING NOTES

"A monster in its infancy. Almost black in color, with intense cassis, herb and mint aromas and superrich, dense cassis and licorice flavors." Wine Spectator
(WS, 10/01/1992)

Rating: 95


"This wine remains backward, tannic, and in need of another 5 or more years of bottle age. The 1986 Ducru possesses a dark ruby color with purple nuances. Initially the bouquet is restrained, but with coaxing it reveals scents of lead pencil, sweet cranberry and black currant fruit nicely intertwined with aromas of steel, minerals, and earth. Rich and medium to full-bodied, but excruciatingly tannic, this is an intensely concentrated Ducru-Beaucaillou with formidable aging potential....Anticipated maturity: 2002-2030. Last tasted 3/97." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Bordeaux, 3rd Edition (1998)
