Average critic rating : 88.5 points



The 1986 possesses a deep ruby/garnet color, with a tight, yet ripe, black currant bouquet backed up with subtle scents of herb, cedar, and sweet oak. On the palate, the wine is muscular, rich, and medium to full-bodied, with a pronounced smoky, mineral, and currant character. It has fine length, with some rustic tannin still noticeable in the finish. Curiously, in this vintage Calon-Segur used an inordinately high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot). Normally the percentage of Merlot is significantly higher. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2015. Last tasted, 4/94. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1



Very firm and elegant, with a bit of a hard edge to remind you it's a St. E stephe, but the grapy, cassis aromas and flavors are classic. It's very wel l put together. all it needs is the complexity and pizzazz that comes with cellaring. Drink after 1993. New label on the '86. – Wine Spectator 1989



One bottle of this wine was not corked but a bit dead with very chewy tannins. Markus Del Monego who remembered it from a previous tasting suggested opening a second bottle which was indeed much livelier (and is the one marked above). Aromatic and fruity, this is now rich, soft and charming but relatively evolved.www.jancisrobinson.com, 09 Dec 2001
