1989 Leoville-Las CasesBordeaux, France
|Sub Region||:||St Julien|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||RP91 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate|
|Tasting Note||:||The 1989 tasted California-like in its ripe, sweet, black cherry fruit, nicely-integrated, toasty new oak, and clean, pure winemaking style. A tighter, more compact finish is the result of elevated tannin, but this is an outstanding, rich, medium-weight Las Cases that tastes less well-endowed than I originally predicted. It is built more along the lines of the classy, elegant 1985 than the blockbuster 1982 and 1986. The wine is still youthful, with no amber at the edge of its healthy deep ruby/purple color.|
