Multi-millionaire collectors will have fun comparing the 1989 and 1990 Petrus. The 1989 has a slightly more saturated color, and seems more tightly knit both aromatically and on the palate. However, this is splitting hairs, as this is another stunningly opulent, rich, full-bodied, amazingly concentrated, exotic, flamboyant Petrus that remains remarkably youthful, and in need of 7-8 more years of bottle age. Additionally, the tannins are slightly more elevated, at least from a tactile impression. However, the 1989 looks to be another 30-year wine, with extraordinary equilibrium between all of its component parts. An amazing effort! Robert Parker

29 years old and still going strong. Complex to say the least. Fruit fades fast, however present out of the gate. Dominant earthiness with a moderate finish.

Great opportunity to taste today. Needed some decanting, light dried cranberry, light spices and a bit nutty. Great nose and length. Wow.

Much riper with less influence from pyrazines than most of the 89s I've tasted from Bordeaux.
