The dark ruby-colored 1989 is a plump, forward style of Domaine de Chevalier. The wine displays smoky toasty oak that is better integrated than in more recent vintages. A smoky, herb-tinged, sweet cherry and black currant-scented nose is followed by a medium-bodied wine with low acidity, ripe, fleshy fruit, moderate tannin, and a nice finish. The 1989 is less evolved than the 1990. Anticipated maturity: 1999-2010. Last tasted 10/97. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1



Delivers a lovely, fresh nose of dark fruits, smoky nuts and flowers, as well as some iodine and shell. Full-bodied, with fine tannin structure and a clean, fruity finish that offers iodine, berries and spices. This builds on the palate, with such class and finesse, going on for minutes. This has such beauty. Don't wait.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now.James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2010.
