While neither the 1989 or 1990 are as spectacular as L'Eglise-Clinet's 1985, 1986, or 1995, they are fine examples of their respective vintages. The 1989 has been variable in recent tastings. The most recent reveals a deep garnet color with an amber edge. The wine exhibited sweet chocolate, jammy black cherry fruit, and lush, precocious, low acid, heady flavors with excellent to outstanding concentration. Some spice and cedar notes emerged with breathing. This fleshy wine appears to be maturing at an accelerated pace. I would opt for drinking it now and over the next 15 years. This particular bottle was more advanced than several other bottles I had in 1996. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 109



Big and juicy, with loads of ripe fruit and big velvet tannins. Full, round and gorgeous. Fantastic. Soft with sweeter fruit. Lovely texture. Always a beauty. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Drink now. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2005.
