flagBordeaux / France

Tasted at the chateau, the 1986 La Conseillante has never really shone in previous encounters. Certainly there is conspicuous bricking on the rim, perhaps more so than other wines of the vintage. The nose is actually not too bad, loose-knit with iron filings, dried blood and leather, a little animally. The palate is medium-bodied and fully mature. There is good weight and body, but it is clearly at the end of its plateau with dried blood and ferrous notes on the soft finish. Drink any bottles sooner rather than later or head for superior vintages, such as the 1985 or 1989. Tasted July 2016. Dec 2016, www.robertparker.com
