1989 l'Arrosée, St-Emilion

SKU #991992 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, smooth, deep and complex, with layers of plum, currant, spice and vanilla flavors all woven together with a measure of subtlety and finesse. Firmly tannic and oaky, too, but comes across as soft and fleshy. *Highly Recommended* Inner quote mark (4/1992)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1989 exhibits a dark ruby color, with slight lightening at the edge, as well as plenty of earthy, black-cherry fruit nicely touched by sweet, toasty oak. It exhibited more richness, glycerin, intensity, and precision than it has in previous tastings. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1997)

The 1989 l'Arrosée is at its marvelous peak right now, exhibiting its classic, mature Bordeaux class. Forest floor, sweet plums and a touch of coffee, and although the tannins are pure velvet at this point, the wine holds its structure with poise. Here’s an elegant wine that is sure to impress at a dinner party, and since it’s no longer made since 2012, when it became part of Quintus, the limited number of these bottles sure adds to its graceful allure.

I really enjoyed getting the chance to taste older vintages from the Right Bank, especially from properties that no longer exist! L'Arrosee was purchased in 2013 by Haut Brion who merged the vineyards with Tetre-Daugay and called the new estate Quintus. Those who like their old school Bordeaux, both in historical and flavorful sense of the word, will really dig this. The flavors are savory with plenty of secondary development and soft tannins that flesh out on the finish.
