Poured out of magnum. Still dark at the core with some bricking at the rim. An enticing nose of pine sap intermixed with dark berry fruit. A nice perfume with hints of forest floor. Medium bodied, surprising amounts of residual sugar, the acidity makes the mouth water slightly with moderate tannin in the background. Delicate yet powerful in the mouth, very enjoyable mature bordeaux that's drinking nicely now. Slightly short on the finish.

Very traditional old-fashioned austere St-Estephe; I doubt it will improve much

Classic Bordeaux style. Moderate fruit , well balanced, soft tannins.SOlid but not spectacular considering the 1989 pedigree vintage.

Auction bottle, held 2 years. Cork and color were great. Bretty nose blew off and a solid, firm leather and plum wine emerged. Held form for 3 hours, improving as it went. Rustic style, chewy and still holding tannin in reserve. 1989!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
