Tasting Notes Pichon Baron 1989

95

Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages exhibit opaque, dense purple colors that suggest massive wines of considerable extraction and richness. The dense, full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge, smoky, chocolatey, cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered, with a sweet inner-core of fruit, this awesomely endowed, backward, tannic, prodigious 1989 needs another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should last for three decades or more. It is unquestionably a great Pichon-Longueville-Baron.

Tasted at Robersons’ 1989 Bordeaux horizontal. The Pichon-Baron ’89 has a lucid garnet core. The nose is very pure and well defined with small black cherries, blueberry, a touch of iodine, mint and a pastille quality coming through. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a saline tang on the entry that I has not been as pronounced on previous bottles, very good acidity with a firm structure and youthful zeal that is irresistible. Wonderful harmony here. The ’89 is jousting with the ’90 for supremacy and on this performance, it may well be overtaking it. Superb. Drink now-2025. Tasted June 2010.
