Tasting Notes
Robert Parker 91
The 1989 tasted California-like in its ripe, sweet, black cherry frit, nicely intergrated, toasty new oak, and clean, pure winemaking style..It is built more alolng the lines of the classy, elegant 1985 than the blockbuster 1982 and 1986.
Wine Spectator 96
Greatest Leoville Las Cases ever produced. Superb concentration with a great velvety texture and ripe fresh flavors. Coconut and vanilla notes and a burst of fruit at the end; wonderful backbone. Very ripe, with raisin and dried fruits on the nose. You can smell the sun-dried grapes. Full-bodied, delivering firm tannins and a very fresh palate. Long and flavorful, offering currant, berries and all sorts of dark fruits, but turns lightly earthy and floral. This is a thoroughly complex wine. Just starting to really open into the mature 20-year-old wine it is, but such a great life ahead of it. Muscular.'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009).
Neil Martin, Wine Journal, eRobert Parker 92
Tasted at Robersons? 1989 Bordeaux horizontal. The Leoville Las-Cases ?89 has a more youthful appearance than the Talbot ?89 tasted alongside. The bouquet is attractive, in some ways the younger brother of the ?82, well defined with smoked meat, game and even Indian spices inflecting the broody black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced and for Las-Cases, feminine and refined. Fresh red-berried fruit, a dash of pepper and a touch of austerity towards the finish, yet very natural and as elegant as Jean-Hubert himself. Whilst it is not the most complex Las-Cases, it is beginning to drink very well.
