TASTING NOTES

"With its decadent bouquet of honeyed, superripe melons, figs, and toasty new oak, the 1989 is an utterly mind-blowing effort from Laville-Haut-Brion. The wine is stunningly rich, concentrated, and intense, with a texture more akin to a Grand Cru white Burgundy than an austere white Graves. Acidity is low and the alcohol level is high, suggesting this wine will have to be drunk in its first 10-15 years of life. For pure power, as well as a sumptuous texture, this may well be the most dramatic Laville-Haut-Brion ever produced. Production was tiny; only 900 cases were made. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2020. Last tasted, 7/93." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #88

"Smooth, round and spicy, almost glowing with bright grapefruit, apple, tobacco and honey aromas and flavors. Finishes firm and lengthy; focused and intense enough to warrant cellaring until 1998 to 2000." Wine Spectator
