    Absolutely delicious. Dark ruby-red color. Fresh blackberry, black truffle and cherry character; tastes like Sachertorte, with chocolate and cherries, velvety tannins and a long finish.

    The 1989 and 1990 are two terrific examples from this |sleeper| chateau situated on the Pomerol/St.-Emilion boundary, neighboring Cheval Blanc. I have drunk the 1989 multiple times since I purchased it for a modest price when it was offered as a future. The wine is typically forward, with an opaque purple color, and an intense, sweet black-raspberry, cedary, toasty-scented nose. In the mouth, the wine defines the word |opulence| with its viscosity and superb levels of jammy black fruits nicely dosed with high quality wood. Sweet and expansive, this is an exuberant, flamboyant St.-Emilion that should drink well for 10-15 years. Think of it as a wine built along the lines of the great 1971, only superior.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
