Deep and sexy. A hint of dried wood. Dark plum and underbrush. Gnarly and delicious. Seems a bit brutish alongside a perfectly stored 90. Very good though.

Delicious. Dark plummy fruit. Hints of tobacco and leather. Very complex on the midpalate with herbal notes. Long and serious and sexy.

The 1989 La Conseillante is one of the top performers in Pomerol and arguably now one of the best values. This bottle confirms that exuberance and joie-de-vivre on the nose, displaying the telltale crushed violets in bloom, with precious but controlled red and black fruit underneath. The palate is sumptuous from the start, presenting cashmere tannin and perhaps a little more glycerine in this bottle. The bravura finish leaves you grinning from ear to ear. Stunning, and it will remain on its plateau for many years. Tasted at the 1989 Bordeaux dinner at Hatched in London. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2019)

1989 Bordeaux PNV Retrospective at Larkmead. Very mature. Dried herbs. Perfume emerges. Modest acidity. Tannis.

The nose was dark and soil driven, yet became fresher adding mint, dried orange peel and savory cherry. On the palate, i found silky textures with zesty acids and dark red fruits, before still-youthful tannins reasserted themselves. The finish was long with saturating dark fruits, spice, herbs and cleansing acidity. Still so young and full of potential.

Lt ruby in the glass. Looks young. Nose includes mocha, cassis, stone, black fruit, plums. Great fruit and structure but also one dimensional. Monolithic. Will this get better with more age? Probably.
