Expert Reviews

95 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(4.7 g/l total acidity; 13.4% alcohol):  Deep ruby-red.  Still youthfully closed but highly complex nose hints at cassis, minerals, gunflint and Oriental spices.  Quite clean and juicy, boasting lovely precision and size to its flavors of small dark berries, smoky plum, coffee and minerals.  This pure, long wine finishes with enticingly soft flavors of red cherry and marzipan.  Though rich and opulent,  this graceful, seamless wine can still age effortlessly.  Maybe the best Lynch-Bages of the last 30 years.

1989 Lynch Bages

As you can see from the reviews there is a variance of opinion on this bottle. For me, this was the very best wine that I have ever tasted, including the 82, 90, 86, 2000, 82 Lafite, and a number of other stars. The aromas were sensational, the body massive and it was very complex and rich. Incredible!
Hats off to Jean-Michel

Maybe the prettiest wine, outside of Burgundy, I've ever tasted, impeccably balanced, extremely nuanced, gorgeous nose and tons of cab flavors but all work together in perfect harmony, wish I could afford more.
VERY smooth

I took this wine to a wine tasting party with a good of people considered and expert in wine. Well when this bottle was opened, peoples jaw dropped. This wine is so smooth with no after taste. I may be a beginner in wine, but this one took the cake! An A+ for sure.
