Tasting Notes Beychevelle 1986

93

This is just a great Beychevelle, certainly the best of the decade and an indication of just what this wine can do. A deep garnet hue. The nose is typical of the vintage: dense cedar and tobacco infused blackberry, a touch of gypsum, wet sand and wild hedgerow (almost like a the north Norfolk sand-dunes.) The palate is full-bodied with a liquorices tinged entry, firm tannins and structure and impressive concentration, one that would not embarrass Las-Cases! Muscular finish that maintains its sense of delineation and harmony. A great wine. Drink now-2020+. Tasted August 2007.

While quite outstanding and deserving to be in any conscientiously stocked wine cellar, the 1986 Beychevelle does not quite have the extraordinary concentration and potential for longevity that I had thought it would. Nevertheless, this is still one of the best Beychevelles in the last 30 years. With its black/ruby color and huge bouquet of roasted fruit, this full-bodied, concentrated, rich wine should not be drunk before the mid-1990s. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 1/91.
