1989 remains memorable. The precocity in maturation and the richness of the grapes were exceptional. A very hot and sunny month of May ensured a rapid development of vegetation.
Tasting Note: "Delivers fabulous aromas of crushed red fruits, with leather, tar, tobacco and mint. Full-bodied, offering supersoft and silky tannins, as well as a beautiful polish. Open and luscious, with amazing richness of fruit and decadence at the same time.??" James Suckling, WS
