Bordeaux 1986 single blind tasting at Grappe, Stockholm. With Mr Carl-Jan Granqvist and Mr Johan Edström. Open. Eucalyptus, licorice, leather, and after some time loads of roasted coffee. Fairly light and lacking some in concentration, the aftertaste could be longer.
Some nice spice on the front palate that represents Northern Rhone well, but I agree with everyone else that this bottle is a disappointment--especially at its present price point. Leathery, dark fruit notes, but otherwise nothing memorable.
