1989 Chateau Pichon-Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac France
Please note the image is of a representative bottle. For pictures of the actual bottle please contact the store.
The dense, full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge, smoky, chocolatey, cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered, with a sweet inner-core of fruit, this awesomely endowed, backward, tannic, prodigious 1989 needs another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should last for three decades or more. It is unquestionably a great Pichon-Longueville-Baron.
Rated 95 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
What a nose here, from crushed mulberry to tanned leather to tar. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins that are soft and caressing, like cashmere. This is so tight and powerful.
