this was a leaker but with good fill – nose was pale and decidedly bronzed – definitely damaged on the nose with obvious madeirization but still possessing some good qualitites, less brett than the 90, more mineral, spicy clay, lots of baking spice, dried fruit, and earth notes, very nearly fully resolved, nice bottle sweetness upfront, notes of sweet mint and raspberry jam across the palate, the finish is long and intense but dried out quickly though retaining a core of raspberry. Even damaged this is drinkable

Very fresh on the nose with split leather, raspberry, herbal and wildflowers rushing up from the glass. Subtle spice, pepper, and soil tones remain a bit obscured by the intensity of the fruit but gentle iron and blood tones struggle to assert themselves. Bright and ripe on entry with red cherry fruit that have a citrus tinge to them. Fine balance with wonderfully ripe tannins, this is succulent and deep with a spicy backend that leads to fine, long finish that reveals the power that the tannins still possess. Very young with a great blend of fruit and spice and deserves some additional time in the cellar to allow the tannins to gain a bit more polish and the fruit to recede enough to reveal all the incipient complexity that the nose promises. 2011-2025 93pts

We opened a magnum last night. It was still a little tanic, but opened up in about 30 minutes. Tasted some pepper, lots of black fruit, earthy flavors. Just outstanding.

The less evolved 1989 boasts an even inkier purple color than the 1990. The most massive, biggest, concentrated, and structured of any of the Jacques Perrins, but it is still 5-10 years away from full maturity. It has great intensity and is extraordi...

The 1989 is inkier/purple in color than the 1990, with an extraordinarily sweet, rich personality offering up notes of smoke, melted licorice, black cherries, Asian spices, and cassis. Full-bodied and concentrated, it is one of the most powerful as w... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

1989 is one of Beaucastels most successful vintages. Delicious young, it continues to age slowly as well as positively. The only problem has been reports about defective corks causing leakage (I bought several cases of this wine and have experienced... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

A similar rich, saturated red-purple hue. This wine seems to have more secondary aromas than the previous two. Quite gamy, even farmyardy. Nevertheless, there is also a floral freshness to the abundance of rich, dark and smoky fruits. On the palate, this is again a charming and fruit-laden wine. Coffee grounds and spice towards the finish, and more spice and a bucketful of tannins on the length. Another wine that will be superb with further bottle age.
