There is so much tobacco and red fruit on the nose of this wine. Exotic and decadent. Full-bodied, with a sleek and racy tannin structure and fresh acidity. Refreshing and clean, yet mature and wild. Still one of the big surprises of the vintage. (JS, Web-2010)
The 1989 Beychevelle has plenty of dark berry fruit on the nose, touches of seawater and briary. Certainly very "old school" in style but I notice how it gains harmony in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with well defined black fruit, quite fresh and edgy, dovetailing into more red fruit towards the second half. One can tell it must have been quite a precocious Beychevelle in its youth and though, it has faded in recent years, this 1989 remains charming. It should offer another decade's worth of drinking pleasure. (NM)
