Critic Score: A modern-day version of the epic 1959, the 1989 Haut-Brion is all about harmony. Fine, silky tannins and expressive aromatics are two of the signatures. Tobacco, cedar and anise add layers of nuance to the dark, mineral-inflected fruit. The 1989 has long been one of my favorite Haut-Brions. It is once again magnificent in this tasting. The linkage with 1959 is quite evident. Readers who are fortunate enough to own the 1989 will be thrilled to follow its evolution over the next few decades.Tasted December 2014. 98+ points.
