1989 Clarke, Listrac

90 points Wine Spectator: "A big, rich and delicious wine. Dark ruby-colored, and interesting aromas of blackberry and orange peel. Full-bodied and chewy, with round tannins and a dark chocolate and cherry aftertaste. (JS)" (05/1999)

1989 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

92 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous wine, so well crafted. Good dark-ruby color. Aromas of cherry, spice and cocoa. Full-bodied, firmly tannic and a long finish of fruit and tannins. Needs time to mellow. 1989 Bordeaux horizontal. (JS) " (05/1999) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It has a strictness on the nose: a headmistress that you would not mind being in trouble with. It is very well defined, more focused than the ’90 with hints of orange blossom and sandalwood. The palate is medium-bodied with vibrant dark berry fruit, cedar, black olive ...Read More »

1989 Léoville-Las-Cases, St-Julien

96 points Wine Spectator: "Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular.

1989 d'Issan, Margaux

Wine Spectator: "Quite meaty and smoky, with rich chocolate and fruit flavors and medium, velvety tannins." (03/1992) K&L Notes: Always roughly 60-70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30-40% Merlot, d'Issan is one of the oldest estates in Bordeaux that has continually produced wine in the appellation. Though its history is long, it's been in this most modern age that we've been able to witness the estate's steady and impressive improvement to the current status as one of the top estates in the appellation of Margaux.

1989 Beau-Sejour Becot, St. Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted side by side with the 1990, it is interesting how much more tannic the 1989 seems to be. Colored a dark plum with some lightening at the edge, the nose shows notes of compost, melted licorice, oak, and black cherry fruit. The overt oakiness noticeable in its youth has become far more subtle and less aggressive. In the mouth the wine starts off large-scaled, fleshy, and fat, but then some relatively astringent tannins kick in in the finish. This has been a perplexing wine to follow, since it was seemingly softer and ...Read More »

1989 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac

96 points Vinous: "Off the charts aromatic intensity, silky tannins and exceptional finesse give the 1989 much of its considerable allure. Crushed flowers, sweet red fruit, tobacco, cedar and incense are some of the many notes that waft from the glass, but it is the wine’s textural finesse that elevates it into the realm of the profound. Wonderfully alive and delineated in every way, the 1989 is one of many highlights on this magical afternoon.

1989 Beausejour Duffau, St-Emilion (1.5L) Back In Stock!
1989 Beausejour Duffau, St-Emilion (1.5L)

According to Robert Parker: "Given the very fine 1989 and outstanding 1990 produced, this property may be on a hot streak. While the 1989 has a promising, understated bouquet of black-cherry fruit, minerals, and spicy oak, it is surprisingly restrained for the vintage. Nevertheless, the ruby/purple color, the velvety, extracted, almost sweet, alcoholic flavors, and good tannins in the finish are clearly reminiscent of a vintage where tremendous ripeness was attained. It is not a blockbuster, but rather an extremely well-balanced, concentrated, impressive ...Read More »

1989 Talbot, St-Julien

Jancis Robinson: "Bright bricky garnet. More evidently leafy than the Langoa, and that makes it smell younger, still of blackcurrant leaves and capsicum, even lavender, though there is a light meatiness. Not as long as the Langoa but richer than I expected from the nose. There's still a slight grip in the tannins and I wonder if there always will be. The tannnis may well outlast the fruit. After an hour, more liquorice on the nose and perhaps just a little dry on the palate but not dried out. 17/20 (JH)" (07/2010) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark r ...Read More »

1989 Figeac, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Figeac vertical at the property. In many ways, the 1989 Figeac was the biggest surprise of the vertical tasting. Hitherto lambasted by critics (including myself I might add), here it seemed to have undergone some Damascene conversion! Generous on the nose, it does not quite offer the fruit intensity of the 1990, but there are lovely warm gravel and licorice aromas, all beautifully detailed. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, sensual in style with Provençal herbs and fennel tincturing t ...Read More »

1989 Lagrange, St-Julien

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This muscular, thick, unctuous, lavishly-oaked wine may cause raised eyebrows by those looking for something restrained and understated. There is no doubting the hedonistic appeal of this style of wine. The 1989 (the first bottle was corked) is a smoky, tar, cassis, roasted herb, jammy style of wine, with a dense purple color, sweet tannin, and low acidity. It is easy to drink, although the bouquet has not changed since I tasted it several years ago. The wine is soft and fat, but not flabby. It should drink well ...Read More »

Full-bodied, very sleek, with fine tannins and a long, long, caressing finish. " (05/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Even more exotic than the 1990 – almost decadent in its sweet rich spice and depth, even some toasted notes. Then perhaps less weight and concentration on the palate than the 1990 so seems to dry a little at the end.

1989 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 1989 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape is an awesome wine with the usual Beaucastel meat, earth and game notes backed up by ripe, clean dark fruit aromas. The palate is stunning and shows considerable structure and a precise, almost angular character. Much more structured and precise in the mouth than the 1990, this has a long, beautiful finish.

1989 Glenmorangie "Grand Vintage" Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The second in Glenmorangie's Vintage Collection Bond House No. 1 series, the grand vintage represents the most special stocks on the Highland Distiller's historic warehouses. In this case the handful of barrels were aged for 27 years and distilled in the previous still house, which replaced the original Bond House No. 1. Referred to as the "Highland Cathedral" it holds Scotland's tallest stills. Dr. Bill Lumsden, having identified these stocks as some of the finest, decided to further mature them in a selection of the finest ex-Oloroso, ex-bourbon, and e ...Read More »

1989 Soutard, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my all-time favorite vintages from Soutard, this wine, which is quite dense, concentrated, muscular, and full-bodied, still has a dark garnet/plum/purple color and a nose of damp earth, liquid minerals, plum, and cassis intermixed with some licorice and cedar. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, and aging at a glacial pace. Quite pure, intense, but still not ready to drink, this is a wine for serious connoisseurs. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.

1989 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1989 exhibits aromas of honeyed pineapple/tropical fruit and toasty new oak, as well as an exotic, flashy perfume that is not as pronounced in either the 1990 or 1988. The 1989 exhibits less botrytis than the other two vintages. The wine possesses an opulent, full-bodied, exotic, lavishly rich personality, moderate sweetness, and huge quantity of extract, glycerin, and alcohol in its finish. The wine is also extremely young and unevolved. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025. (RP)" (01/1998) 90 points Stephen Ta ...Read More »

1989 Malescot St.-Exupery, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Historically, I believe 1989 will be the vintage that marks the turn-around in quality for Malescot St.-Exupery. The 1989 is overshadowed by the 1990, as well as by the vintages of the mid-nineties, but it is a very good example, and far superior to much of what was produced during the sixties, seventies, and eighties. The color is a dark ruby. The bouquet reveals scents of roasted herbs, sweet black berry and red currant fruit, earth, and spice. The wine possesses moderately high tannin and some austerity, but a sweetness ...Read More »

Still lively ruby colored with beautiful, classic notes of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, underbrush, and a touch of gamey meats, this medium-bodied, supple, elegant wine still packs plenty of sweet fruit, resolved tannin, and outstanding length. I would expect it to be more evolved from 750ml bottles, as even from this larger format it’s fully mature. It’s an elegant, classy Haut-Médoc that’s drinking at point."

The first bottle was unfortunately corked. The second was as it should be: the nose tensile with red berries, sous-bois, potpourri and strawberry pastille - lively and energetic. The palate is medium-bodied and vibrant right from the start, silky in texture with plenty of citrus fruit, gently building to a harmonious and detailed finish that lingers in the mouth.

1989 Diamond Creek "Volcanic Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Al and Boots Brounstein founded Diamond Creek Vineyards in 1968. The three vineyards Brounstein planted have produced some of the most long-lived, elegant wines from the state of California, wines that make the case "that Diamond Creek is the finest producer of Cabernet Sauvignon in America," according to wine writer Pierre DuMont. This bottling comes from the eight-acre Volcanic Hill vineyard, which has ashy volcanic soils deposited by the eruption of Mt. Konocti eight million years ago.

1989 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion
Bid on this bottle of 1989 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion (98DC, 96RP, 93ST, 93WS). Decanter: "Cheval Blanc saw 25% less rainfall than average in this vintage. Summer was hot but not a heatwave – the grapes were brought in from 7 September to 5 October, the earliest harvest date in the 20th century, and there are clear hints of prune and fig, but with menthol and eucalyptus touches that give it a fresh lift and suggest that blockages of maturity just might have been the key to its longevity. Concentrated, sexy, opulent, lifted through the finish, just smoky enough. The blend, by the way, is not exact because Cabernet Sauvignon was counted with the Cabernet Franc right up until 2014. However, plantings were recorded as 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc, with a high yield of 50hl/ha (the average between 1946 and 2014 is 33hl/ha, so this is significant). Still in the fullest grip of life. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030 (JA)" (10/2018)

1989 Montrose, St-Estèphe
Bid on this bottle of 1989 Montrose, St-Estèphe (100RP, 99JS, 96WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For many years I have vehemently argued that the 1989 Montrose is a benchmark wine for the estate. Having tasted it several times over the last couple of months, I have never found a single occasion to alter that view. Tasted at the vertical in London, it continues to shine, having never lost any of its luster in recent years. It is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was picked from 11 to 28 September. Lucid in color, the aromatics do not hold back with vibrant blackberry, blueberry and black truffle, hints of sous-bois, all with sensational precision that few can match in this vintage (indeed, its precision lends it a veneer of modernity since "precision" is now more commonplace across Bordeaux). The palate is brilliantly balanced with filigree tannin. There is wonderful backbone here, extremely fresh and tensile, crystalline even with an exceptio

Sweet, overripe cherries also make an appearance in this thick, juicy, yet structured, rather powerful Tertre Roteboeuf that is aging more slowly than its more renowned sibling, the 1990.
