Long and weighted. Constant fruit with air of sharp smoke initially. Excellent
Extraordinarily smooth going down. How I wish I had had more than one bottle! Enjoyed with a meal of Bracciole. Opened bottle 1/2 hour before decanting. Allowed to breathe 15 minutes before pouring for diners. Fruit was subdued, but there was zero harshness. Lovely, lovely wine.

Gorgeous aromas of currants, berries and minerals. Full-bodied, with juicy tannins and a long, long fininsh. Same as ever... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1989 Pichon-Longueville Baron 1500ml
"98 out of 100...Gorgeous aromas of currants, berries and minerals. Full-bodied, with juicy tannins and a long, long fininsh. Same as ever. This will age for decades to come. Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year in 1992. Super quality.
Impressive saturated ruby color. Pure, classic Pauillac aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, menthol and flowers. Very intensely flavored, precise and penetrating, with an extremely primary flavor of cassis. Almost magically light on its feet
...dense full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge smoky chocolatey cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered with a sweet inner-core of fruit this awesomely endowed backward tannic prodigious 1989... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
...Pure classic Pauillac aromas of black cherry bitter chocolate menthol and flowers. Very intensely flavored precise and penetrating with an extremely primary flavor of cassis. Almost magically light on its feet owing to its rather strong acidity... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
