Rather less intense colour than the 1988. More subtle development on the nose than the 1988 but still slightly chewy tannins. Big and brassy. You could enjoy this with food now. Fluid and with lots of fruit.

Considering the vintages and the estate, Mouton's performances in 1989 and 1990 are puzzling. I have tasted these wines multiple times since my last reviews appeared in print. The 1989 Mouton-Rothschild is the superior wine, but in no sense is this a compelling wine if compared to the Moutons produced in 1995, 1986, and 1982. The 1989 displays a dark ruby color that is already beginning to reveal significant lightening at the edge. The bouquet is surprisingly evolved, offering up scents of cedar, sweet black fruits, lead pencil, and toasty oak. This elegant, medium-bodied restrained wine is beautifully made, stylish, and not dissimilar to the 1985. It is an excellent to outstanding Mouton that should be close to full maturity in 4-5 years; it will drink well for 15-20.

This is outstanding quality, with pretty aromas and flavors of mint, berry and milk chocolate. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a silky finish. But I have had better bottles than this. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Drink now.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
