Carruades de Lafite Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1989

Winemaker's Notes:

One of the few properties in the Graves to produce both first class red andwhite wines, Domaine de Chevalier is that rare breed of Bordeaux estate wherequality goes in hand with reliability - year in, year out.Chevalier's superb 1989 vintage is plump and forward, merging sweetcherry and blackcurrant aromas with a delicious hint of herbs and fleshy fruit.Silky, smooth and supremely intergrated, this is most certainly a wine to

The dark ruby-colored 1989 is a plump, forward style of Domaine de Chevalier. The wine displays smoky toasty oak that is better integrated than in more recent vintages. A smoky, herb-tinged, sweet cherry and black currant-scented nose is followed by a medium-bodied wine with low acidity, ripe, fleshy fruit, moderate tannin, and a nice finish. The 1989 is less evolved than the 1990. Last tasted 10/97
