Château Cheval Blanc 1989
Wine Spectator (3/31/1999) : 95
Exotic. Fragrant spicy, roasted fruit and coffee aromas give way to very ripe fruit with toasty notes on the palate. It has good depth, and seems to be opening up after a dumb phase. Drink or hold.
Winespectator 91 Punkte: Good color. Tanned leather, earth and ripe fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with herbs and berries. Slight dilution in the center palate.Outstanding, but not a classic Cheval.--Bordeaux retrospective.

Parker 89 Punkte: Since its bottling, the 1989 has frequently been disappointing. In this tasting, it showed better than it has over the last several years. The 1989 is not a great effort for this chateau. The color is already revealing an amber edge, and the lead pencil, cedar, spicy, black fruit, and vanillin-scented nose is more reminiscent of a young Lafite, than the exotic style associated with Cheval Blanc in a hot, dry, ripe year. This medium weight, lightly tannic wine is very approachable.
