Tasting Notes Clinet 1989

98

Served from perfectly stored magnum, this compensate for two previous showing where the wine displayed “issues”. None here. It is blessed with a bouquet that rivets you to the spot, not a million miles away from Lafleur ‘89 with mulberries, cough candy, Italian cooked delicatessen and exotic yellow plums. It is beautifully balanced on the palate, full-bodied and very concentrated, though the passing years have worn its precocity down. What is interesting to see a sense of linearity and focus here that might not be so evident on bottle formats. So it achieves this wonderful juxtaposition of opulence and classicism to render a quite fabulous, multi-dimensional Pomerol that you just lose yourself in. It has divine clarity on the finish with black plum, liquorices and anis lingering long in the mouth. Finally, I get to experience this legendary wine. Is it perfect? Not quite. But I can understand the fuss. Tasted March 2013.

This wine has such balance and harmony. I remember when it was young and how the new wood and intense fruit came out, but they have finally come together in such a beautiful way. It shows subtle and complex character of plums, cedar, dried flowers, and earth. The texture or mouthfeel is beautiful as you taste it.

One of the great modern-day Bordeaux, the 1989 Clinet still has a saturated purple color and a sweet nose of creme de cassis intermixed with incense, licorice, smoke, and mineral. As the wine sits in the glass, more blueberry and blackberry notes emerge, intermixed with some toasty oak, earth, and spice. This spectacularly concentrated, full-bodied, multi-dimensional wine is the stuff of dreams. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. Last tasted, 10/02
