The four finest second wines (wines made from declassified first-growth cuvees) I have ever tasted are the 1982 and 1990 Forts de Latour 1989 Bahans-Haut-Brion and 1995 Pavillon de Chateau Margaux.

The four finest second wines (wines made from declassified first-growth cuvees) I have ever tasted are the 1982 and 1990 Forts de Latour 1989 Bahans-Haut-Brion and 1995 Pavillon de Chateau Margaux. I am amazed by just how delicious the 1989 Bahans-Haut-Brion continues to be. Although it is approaching full maturity it reveals no signs of amber. The 1989 is a textbook Graves in its sweet blackcurrant tobacco roasted herb-scented nose. Medium to full-bodied with succulent texture rich fleshy flavors and low acidity it is a pure beautifully made wine. It should continue to drink well for 5-8 years. Both the 1989 and 1990 Bahans-Haut-Brion represented splendid bargains when they were released. I suspect quantities still exist in the marketplace.

Along with very firm tannins this wine shows fresh blackberry and stone aromas and flavors and a velvety mouth-feel. Quite dense on the palate. Try after 1997.
