International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 103

($140-$165) Full, deep red. Flamboyant aromas of cassis, currant leaf, tobacco, herbs and animal fur. Sweet, lush and lively; already showing lovely inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes long, strong and lively, with firm tannins and slow-mounting persistence. Earlier bottles of this wine appeared to be a bit more exotic, even slightly animal, but this offers a lovely combination of purity and sheer ripeness. Drink over the next 15 years.

Very deep crimson with very evolved rim. Tealeaf nose and very ripe. Light nose with clean aromas. Bit soupy but rather rusty nails on the palate. Not the pure bite of the Pichon Barons. Smudgy. Furry tannins. Chewy finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 109

Speaking of superior vintages, Pichon-Lalande's 1989, although not as profound as the 1995, 1994, 1986, 1983, or 1982, is a beautifully made wine. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, and a sweet, roasted nose of rich cassis fruit, herbs, and vanilla. Lush and round, this medium to full-bodied, nicely-textured, layered Pichon-Lalande possesses low acidity, outstanding ripeness, and beautiful purity and balance. It is already drinking surprisingly well, so owners should not hesitate to pull a cork. It should continue to offer rich, seductive drinking for another 15+ years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Voluptuous and velvety. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas of blackberries, fresh mushrooms and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with loads of ripe fruit and velvety tannins. A big, youthful wine that needs time to mellow.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal.

More than ready, lots of lead and smoke.

Consistent notes. Med dark ruby/mahogany red; profound nose of primarily black fruit dominating tobacco & leather notes; similar & very complex flavors, well integrated mature soft tannins; good grip; very complex and long; beautifully balanced; extremely long finish; still vigorous and drinking well now with plenty of life ahead. A GREAT Bordeaux that has kept getting better in bottle!

Approaching maturity, Pichon-Lalande's1989 has a deep ruby color with absolutely no tannin. Not full bodied but delicately exqusitte! Drink now and love it!
