Description:

*Chateau Pichon Longueville (Baron) 1989
Pauillac, 2eme Cru Classe one label badly damaged, vintage intact
"Both the 1989 and 1990 vintages exhibit opaque, dense purple colors that suggest massive wines of considerable extraction and richness. The dense, full-bodied 1989 is brilliantly made with huge, smoky, chocolatey, cassis aromas intermingled with scents of toasty oak. Well-layered, with a sweet inner-core of fruit, this awesomely endowed, backward, tannic, prodigious 1989 needs another 5-6 years of cellaring; it should last for three decades or more. It is unquestionably a great Pichon-Longueville-Baron." R. Parker, 95 pts. 02/97 4 bottles
Estimate $525-725
