Expert Reviews

94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2002

($165-$225) 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 owing to its rather strong acidity. A very young, extremely long wine with great tensile strength. May yet merit a higher score with another six to eight years of bottle aging. 2006 to 2025.

Smooth and Complex
by Smith11317216
I just drank the 1989 Pichon at dinner with a braised beef dish. After decanting for 30 minutes, I couldn't wait any longer and started to drink this lovely wine. This bottle seem to just be hitting the beginning of its peak. It is a very complex, classic Bordeaux but with an incredibly smooth mouth feel despite the tannins. Highly recommend this one now or in the years to come
Almost twenty but not yet ready
by Winedoctor
We had a bottle of this with a steak dinner, thinking from the reviews that it would be a winner. It may merit 5 stars eventually, but it is closed now. Muted nose of cassis, leather, and tobacco, followed by a rich, full mouth feel with good length but not very complex or satisfying. It should be much better in 5 years.
