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.—'89/'99 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. 25,000 cases made. –JS Wine Spectator 93

In 1989 Beychevelle produced a compellingly elegant wine that rivals their 1986 and 1982, the two other superstars made at this beautiful estate during the decade of the eighties. An exquisite bouquet of super-ripe fruit, vanillin, flowers, and licorice is followed by a delicious array of flavors that swell and expand on the palate. Rich and concentrated, yet also suave and graceful, the 1989 Beychevelle is extremely long, with a hefty dosage of high but soft tannins. Robert Parker 91
