I have always enjoyed the 1989 La Lagune. At first I thought it was marginally superior to the 1990, but they are essentially equivalent in quality, although the 1989 possesses less fat, and a more ruggedly tannic structure. The color is a healthy dark ruby, and the wine offers up a smoky, sweet vanillin, jammy berry-scented nose with aromas of weedy tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied, with excellent purity and richness, and gobs of red and black currant fruit nicely dosed with new oak. The wine's grip is more noticeable than in the 1990... Robert Parker

Still primary fruits. Black and sour cherry, very earthy, hints of tobacco and herbs. Fine, soft tannins and remarkable freshness. Outstanding wine.

Showing its age, but in the most appropriate way. Beautiful delicate aromatics, with gossamer-like tea rose.

In magnum... Very tasty wine and a little tight upon opening. I should have tasted this again four hours later to see what happened. A fun wine though to try and a long life ahead of it, especially in mag. #yulwinethrowdown
