Spicy, mature nose, with plums and cloves. Chocolate in the middle. Elegance rather than power - seize it now. But, more recently, a splendid bottle outdid previous examples. An amazing chocolate explosion of flavour. Wonderful wine. So rich and opulent, whereas normally in 1986 the Right Bank tends to be a mite thin. On this evidence, a knock-out. Again, in 2010, still with a great colour and a terrifically chocolate bouquet. Full of aromatics. Utterly coats the mouth with glycerol but also with great finesse of texture. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
