1989 Margaux, Margaux

SKU #950134 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is about as alluring as it gets aromatically, with singed alder, juniper, bay and charcoal notes out front, hinting at power but turning beguiling as they flow into the core of steeped red currant, dried currant and black tea. The charcoal note makes an encore, with a lovely twinge of old-school character holding the finish. Always a great debate vis-à-vis the '90, but the slightly darker profile here gives this wine a lovely bit of extra drama. (JM, Web-2014) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Quite powerfully aromatic and sweet with tannins all receded and some 1989 burly sunshine in the glass. But very nice Margaux perfume on top of that flattering fruit. Just the stage of maturity you want to encounter in a claret. Note the relatively low alcohol. Presumably a higher-ranked 1989 would have a little more complexity but this is lovely drinking and very true to the appellation. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2019)
