A bit tart like the 1990. This was more popular with the other tasters but I found its superripeness just a tiny bit lacking in refreshment. Strong black-cherry flavours.

Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker

This is an upper-ninety point La Conseillante that is very much in the style of the 1990. In comparing the two vintages, the 1989 has slightly more noticeable tannin and structure, but it is a perfumed, exotic, sweet, expansive, yummy wine that is hard to resist. These two wines represent La Conseillante's quintessential smooth as silk style, which often leads consumers to believe the wines will not last. One of the unexplainable facts of Bordeaux wine drinking is that even the softer, delicious, up-front wines can age impeccably when well-stored. Owners of the 1989 La Conseillantes should not hesitate to enjoy them now, as well as over the next 20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

An outstanding wine of subtle spice, cherry and herb aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with ripe fruit and soft tannins. Long, chocolate and spice aftertaste.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal.

Blue fruit, mint, mocha, graphite. In the prime of its life, not going to get better I don't think.

Big flowery, meaty flavor bomb with a medium to long finish. Great with strong cheese and friends.

Great bottle. Not far behind 1990. Light ruby, nose of red fruit, slight bricking at the rim. Taste was expansive - nice depth of strawberry, raspberry with a slight tinge of earthiness. Just slightly behind the 90 in terms of depth and finish but still a hedonistic experience. 50+9+9+18+9=95
