1989 Larmande, St. Emilion

SKU #951273

Stunning wine! This is a great vintage for all Bordeaux. Lush, ripe wines. 93 points from the Wine Spectator: "Wonderful. This is a concentrated, earthy red with lots going on. Deep dark-ruby color. Fresh aromas of blackberries, dried herbs and spices. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of rustic tannins and a long, tobacco aftertaste." (05/99) And, according to Robert Parker: "A flattering wine, the 1989 is nearly as structured and concentrated as the 1988. If you like wonderfully round, hedonistic, soft, alcoholic, luscious St.-Emilions, this super-ripe, heady, and voluptuously textured wine will offer many thrills." (02/93)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
