Wine Critic Reviews:

I have always enjoyed the 1989 La Lagune. At first I thought it was marginally superior to the 1990, but they are essentially equivalent in quality, although the 1989 possesses less fat, and a more ruggedly tannic structure. The color is a healthy dark ruby, and the wine offers up a smoky, sweet vanillin, jammy berry-scented nose with aromas of weedy tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied, with excellent purity and richness, and gobs of red and black currant fruit nicely dosed with new oak. The wine's grip is more noticeable than in the 1990... Robert Parker

Sokolin 1989 La Lagune Tasting Notes:

If you consider yourself a discrete person, you certainly won't after you get near this wine. One encounter with it will make you want to tell the world just how exquisite it is. You may not have been the one to kiss and tell, but 1989 La Fleur Petrus has the power to change you… You'll become the one to drink and tell.

The first thing you'll notice about this beautiful Pomerol is the subtle ruby color beaming from the bottle. It becomes even more glowing in your glass so you'll wish to dive right in. Take a moment to appreciate the sweet nose of caramel, cherries, and cedar mixed with some dried herbs that give it a unique, refreshing and youthful style. With impeccable density and smooth texture woven with elegant, ripe currants and raisins on the palate, one sip will undoubtedly turn you into one of the La Fleur Petrus's biggest fans. Still enjoyably drinkable, but don't wait for too long.
