1989 Chateau Haut Brion (3 L - Double Magnum)Bordeaux, France
|Producer||:||Chateau Haut Brion|
|Capacity||:||3 L - Double Magnum|
|Rating||:||WA 100 - Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||A spectacular wine that only goes from strength to strength, and which ranks among the pinnacles of my birth year vintage, the 1989 Haut-Brion wafts from the glass with a rich bouquet of blackberries, blackcurrants, cigar wrapper, loamy soil, black truffle, burning embers and vine smoke. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's sumptuous and dramatic, with huge reserves of fruit that are complemented by carnal, savory nuances and framed by melting tannins and ripe acids. Concluding with a long, resonant finish, the only criticism one can make is that a 750-milliliter bottle simply isn't enough. 2009 - 205|
