Wine Critic Reviews:

The 1986 Leoville-Las Cases, which Delon continues to believe is his finest vintage in the eighties (even eclipsing the 1982 - 100 RP), still exhibits a black/purple color with no signs of age. The wine is full-bodied, exceptionally well-delineated, and phenomenally concentrated. Robert Parker

Sokolin 1986 Leoville Las Cases Tasting Notes:

Few vintages express the quintessential elegance of a fine Latour quite like this 1986, and all it takes is a single tasting to figure out why. From the pungent, intoxicating nose of chocolate, blueberry, earthy leather, and red fruit to the stunning textural complexity on the palate, there's no weakness in its plan of attack. The fruit is still as powerful as it was years ago, possessing a distinctly youthful vigor and density. It's a balanced, refined beauty, a wine that rewards a developed palate and a patient, inquisitive mind. The finish is long and mesmerizing and brings one's attention to the soft, gentle tannic presence.

The wine is currently in its most approachable years, but there's no need to hurry. Whether you intend to drink as soon as possible or shelter it for another decade or two, the wine will perform with the best of them. It's not just a delicious wine, but an unforgettable part of Bordeaux wine culture.
