[ Robert Parker : 92 points ] 1989 wines were made to go the distance, and this is truly one of the great examples. Drinking beautifully today, unfurling aromas of cherries and dark berries entwined with notions of cigars and black truffles. This wine is not only fleshy, muscular, silky tannins evolving into a long seductive finish. It definitely didn’t just endured, it improved and evolved into an aged worthy wine.


[ Wine Advocate : 94 ] The vintage that raised the profile of the estate. Holding an endearing youthful bouquet, brambly red fruit with asphalt and marine influence. Medium bodied with supple tannins. A depth and backbone to impress with hints of secondary truffle and smoky notes that emerges with some aeration. This is one that seems to become more and more impressive with age. Robert Parker lauded this Calon Ségur at the time of its release, and years on, it is still fulfilling all its promises.


[ Wine Enthusiast : 94 ] Truly a powerful velvety wine that still packs a walloping punch of Saint Estephe tannins. Fruit under these tannins are pure, ripe, black and generous. A dense palate that holds delicate chocolate notes, mineral and walnut skin. Fresh and precise, this wine is hitting full maturity where it should remain for another 10-15 years.


[ Robert Parker : 94 ] With Cabernet Sauvignon dominating the blend, the wine has an almost dense plum / purple color along with notes of underbrush. Plums laced with smoky charcuterie and roasted herbs lingers longingly in the background. Full bodied with moderate tannins that sets the wine for an extremely long life. With such powerful and massive size, it’s a wine that needs at least a decade of cellaring before it’s ready to seduce the most discriminating palate.


[ Robert Parker : 96 ] Utterly gorgeous wine that is living up to the promise of its showing at the En Primeur. Donning a deep garnet purple, it is slowly revealing warm red and black mixture of currents, kirsch and plums with wafts of earth, violets, chocolate wood smoke. Elegantly expressed fresh mint leaves accompanies the bold freshness supporting effortlessly densely packed black fruits. Chocolate and cappuccino notes swirl through the finish that only entices more.
