With its decadent bouquet of honeyed, superripe melons, figs, and toasty new oak, the 1989 is an utterly mind-blowing effort from Laville-Haut-Brion. The wine is stunningly rich, concentrated, and intense, with a texture more akin to a Grand Cru white Burgundy than an austere white Graves. Acidity is low and the alcohol level is high, suggesting this wine will have to be drunk in its first 10-15 years of life. For pure power, as well as a sumptuous texture, this may well be the most dramatic Laville-Haut-Brion ever produced. Production was tiny; only 900 cases were made. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2020.
