Great value--we tasted this beauty in April 2014 and bought it on the spot. Drink now--quite sweet on the palate. Hard to miss on this one. (Clyde Beffa Jr, K&L)

You might balk at the price and vintage of this wine and think to yourself "there's no way this is a bottle of 30 year old Bordeaux for $40, it's clearly past its prime, or wasn't good to begin with". Those concerns would be justified, but rest assured that this truly is one of those rare deals for an incredible bottle of properly aged Bordeaux. '89 was a nice warm vintage, lending itself to rounder, more juicy wines, and this is no exception. The nose is of plum, leather, and diatomaceous earth, with hints of violet, and wood spice. The palate is soft and round, the years have done exactly what you would want by softening those tannin and bringing out some rich fruit and tobacco notes. If you're looking for good Bordeaux for dinner, or to bring to a party, look no further, you won't find another of this age at this price!

A neighbor of Poujeaux, this property held back most of their production for many years and now that the younger generation has taken over, the wines have been released. Wow. This is a spectacular buy! Thirty-year-old Bordeaux direct from the property. Old school property from a very ripe vintage; soft and sweet. Elegant but not for the lovers of young California Cabernet. Red fruits and Asian spice aromas. Definitely old school. I love it.
Drink from 2019 to 2023

Additional Information:


Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- 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.
