Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

$1249

I am certainly not going to argue with anyone who believes La Mission-Haut-Brion's 1989 is every bit as profound as the 1989 Haut-Brion. It is a spectacular wine, and as it ages in the bottle, it is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite La Mission-Haut-Brions, ranking alongside the 1982, 1975, 1961, 1959, and 1955. The 1989 boasts a dense, thick, purple color, followed by a sweet, roasted cassis, chocolatey-scented nose with whiffs of tobacco, tar, and minerals. The wine is extremely full-bodied, unctuously-textured, sweet, jammy, and rich...it is already delicious to drink...it will drink well for 15-20 years. Robert Parker

This took an hour decanted to open up. Out of the bottle it was clumsy and shy. Two hrs in it was a show stopper.

Fantastic mature Bordeaux. Plenty of little complex notes hiding in there.

Not as good as it should have been. A bit less powerful than expected?

More electricity than other 89's with no less opulence! Pure magic leaping from the glass!

WOTN. This bottle was a little more evolved but still rocking. Classic La Mission. Love this wine.
