Dark and gravelly. Quite masculine and broad alongside the 82 and 83. Deep iron, blood, minerality. A slightly tangy note. Good stuff. Possibly not a perfect bottle

The 1989 Cheval Blanc is a vintage that I have not encountered since 2010. One bottle opened was rustic and fatigued, and Pierre-Olivier Clouet opened a second that was much better. It has a gorgeous bouquet of ample red fruit, morels, black truffle, cigar box and hints of brown sugar, all very well defined and charming. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and approaching full maturity; brown spices, bay leaf and clove infuse the red berry fruit. At 30 years of age, I suspect this 1989 will not improve further, but its robustness suggests that any decline will be graceful. Tasted from an ex-cellar bottle at the château.

1989 Bordeaux PNV Retrospective at Larkmead. Spearmint, weedy. Very mature (past?). Fruit gone- all about bottle bouquet.
