  • Après avoir goûté un Léoville Barton 1983, ce vin est un peu plus réveillé sur le plan gustatif. Ce 1986 acheté dans la Vente Champlain Charest témoigne du terroir de limestone et d'argile. Le Merlot est présent à 80% avec le Cab Franc à 15% et 5% de Cab Sauvignon. Une couleur grenat avec des nuances rouge brique, un bouquet de feuilles mortes, de bleuets et de tabac représente le nez de ce vin de près de 30 ans d'âge. La trame gustative est impressionnante en attaque mais persiste moins longtemps que le 83 de Léoville Barton. Un vin à la texture rugueuse et poussièreuse sur des saveurs de fruits, d'anis étoilée et de cassis. La finale est explosive mais de courte persistance.

  • Med garnet, breathed half an hour, matured merlot, fruit largely given way to 2and aroma, but was bit tired. Faint floral note from mid palate, have to drink quick and obviously passed its peak. Depends whether one enjoy matured merlot.

  • In a perfect place right now. On opening the fruit was very apparent, and the tannins still showing the 86 pedigree by giving a tongue-lashing at the end. After 45 minutes or so the tannins softened out and allowed the fruit to take center stage, finishing long and smooth. This held well over two hours, and would have gone longer had we not attacked with vigor. Seems at peak now, though the tannins suggest it would last longer, the chance remains that the fruit will recede as time passes. Well done.

  • Plummy, elegant and a beautiful wine to drink now.

  • Fill was IN. Still very attractive nose. Palate is voluptuous and has loads and loads of tannins (1986...). Long finish.
