1989 Lafleur Bordeaux - 99 pts!
The 1989 is superior to the 1988 but compared to the big exotic dense kinky style that Lafleur has exhibited in vintages such as 1975 1979 1982 and 1983 this is a more refined more gentlemanly-like wine. Dark ruby/purple in color super concentrated and very closed it has a great deal of tannin and alcohol in the finish. This is a wine to be drinking between the turn of the century and the first two and a half decades of the next millenium. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030. Tasted four times. Consistent notes. Lafleur is one of the greatest wines of Bordeaux as anyone who has followed the quality of this property over the last several decades can attest and one of the most difficult to find. The problem is that there are only 1000 cases to go around the world a big chunk of which was purchased by the Belgians who have long known about its extraordinary quality often rivaling sometimes even surpassing Petrus.

Rating RP98 - 1989 Lafleur Bordeaux - 99 pts! Really decadent and powerful, delivering dried fruit and grilled meat. Very Porty, featuring red licorice and prune on the nose. Velvety and rich, with a full palate and amazing fruit of aniseed and black licorice. It goes on and on. What freshness and beauty. Delicate fruit, chocolate and berries. This is just opening up now.
