1989 CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1989


Since 1893, the harvest had never been so early. The grapes were ripe by the end of August and the berries turned out to be incredibly rich in sugar. The 1989 vintage produced delicious red wines comparable to those of 1982. Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1989 is a colorful, rich and fleshy wine.

Expert's opinions

95 / 100
Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 Tasted from magnum at Bordeaux Index, this is another confirmation that the 1989 is the Lafite to go for if choosing between 1988, 1989 and 1990. Here it has a typical Lafite nose with cedar, graphite and not so much menthol this time, but traces of wild mint. It blossoms with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a sense of solidity that I find missing in the 1988 or 1990. It has a sense of femininity and grace: an undercurrent of sous-bois, bay leaf and a touch of sandalwood. Harmonious with good length, I feel that the 1989 is at its peak right at this very moment. Tasted December 2012.

This is a quietly restrained, elegant wine with velvety tannins and a lean profile. The spices and savoury elements add depth to an impressive wine. Fairly long finish.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Still young, another decade will help the wine add to its cedar, spice box, spearmint, tobacco, cassis, earth, cigar ash and cherry nose. Medium bodied, tight and needed more air than a pop a pour, the wine is high toned and elegant in style.
