1986 La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan
A rather cold spring. Hard weather conditions in June for the flowering. A hot and dry summer carried through until the end of the harvest period. A tannic wine, very much characteristic of the Graves. A hint of caramel and of burnt. A very good wine. Will age slowly.
