A very open and giving nose with a ruch of cassis, maduro tobacco, pencil lead, really gains in intensity with a classic, slightly herbaceous, spice (chinese 5 spice), exotic berry fruited nose that retains a toaty edge and hints of earth and eggshell. Certainly bigger and lusher than the 1988 with softer acidity, nice red fruits and leather up front with tannins only peaking out on the finish. While the nose grew all evening this became less interesting in the mouth losing a bit of it's fleshiness revealing more drying tannin. The fruit on the finish remains lovely with a bit more obvious toast and scorthed earth as well as roasted plum. Nice and just entering it's peak drinking window.

Opened another bottle of this the other day (only have 5 left from a case of 12) and it is getting better year on year. Superb balance, the fruit is fresh, long finish. Superb. I expect next year's tasting will be better yet.

...The 1989 Lafite is also outstanding, but closed, with the tannin more elevated, and the wine so stubbornly reticent as to make evaluation almost impossible. Lafite's 1989 was far more easy to taste and understand several years ago. It appears to h... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
