Winemaker Notes

The 1989 vintage begins with very intense and beautiful color. Harmonious aromas of cuban cigar, smoke, soft spice, dark fruits. Balanced richness and fullness. An exceptional finish with harmonious flavors of fresh fruit and confits as well as notes of cocoa and licorice.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages exhibit opaque, dense purple colors that suggest massive wines of considerable extraction and richness. The 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 needs another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should last for three decades or more. It is unquestionably a great Pichon-Longueville-Baron.

Wine Spectator

What a nose here, from crushed mulberry to tanned leather to tar. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins that are soft and caressing, like cashmere. This is so tight and powerful still; it seems to be holding back. Be patient, because it will open with another five or six years of bottle age. Hard to wait. So why do it?

International Wine Cellar

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.

In 1988, following an architectural competition organized by the Centre Georges Pompidou, the château and wine cellar... View More
