Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Bommes 1989

Lafaurie 1989 #1

A flamboyant, fullish gold color.  Generous, complex, exotic nose:  freesia, acacia, passionfruit and apricot, with a lightly burnt toffee, cocoa butter, honey and buttered toast overlay.  Fat, rich and oaky.  Nicely concentrated, fully textured, liquer-like.  Plenty of noble rot here.  But nothing ponderous here given all this size and weight.  A filigree acidity and very fine grip, just a bit firmer than Lafaurie-Peyraguey ’88 and so the ’89 will last a bit longer. Now – 2030.
