97 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2002

($425-$675) Medium red. Highly nuanced, roasted aroma dominated by tobacco, grilled nuts, smoke and vanillin oak. Densely packed, but also juicy and penetrating, with great thrust and superb vinosity. A very powerful wine with a robust tannic structure. Finishes very long and strong. This and La Mission really transcend the vintage. Drink 2005 through 2030.

The best of the best !
08/18/2000
by Stephane Castera
When I try the 1989 I also served a 1989 white and i requested that the guest saves some of the Blanc 1989 to try with the cheese course. They loved it! This is not to suggest that the rouge 1989 wasn't also standing its own ground. The color of the wine is an intense ruby red that is present almost to the rim. The nose is well balanced with soft fruits and a hint of herbs and tobacco. The tannins are polished, but still quite young. It is certainly an unctuous and complex wine. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but if left to age it may become one of the best Haut Brion I ever experienced .
