Tasting Notes Pichon Baron 1986

88

Forgetting, of course, the 1988, 1989, and 1990 trilogy, the 1986 has turned out to be one of the best wines made from this once perennial underachiever. Deep black/ruby in color, with a fragrant, expansive bouquet of oak and blackcurrants, this brawny, full-bodied, rich wine has plenty of tannin yet, atypically for the vintage, a pleasing suppleness that will permit it to be drunk in the early nineties. Anticipated maturity: Now-2005. Last tasted, 3/92.

Tasted at Roberson's Pichon Lalande/Pichon Baron vertical. This is much better than the last Pichon Baron '86 that I tasted, although still lightweight compared to today's wines. It has a light, rather simple austere bouquet with earthy/undergrowth aromas that develops that slight ferrous note with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and is rather facile for such a great Pauillac vintage. Yet this example has more vigour and is not as obdurate as previous examples, with less astringency towards the finish. I remain parsimonious with my score however, because it is simply not particularly pleasurable. Tasted September 2010.
