"...The prodigious 1989 Haut-Brion is one of the greatest first-growths I have ever tasted. The wine exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, as well as a sweet nose of jammy fruit, tobacco, spicy oak, minerals, and smoke. Fabulously concentrated, with huge levels of fruit, extract, and glycerin, this wine is nearly viscous because of its thickness and richness. Low acidity gives the wine even more appeal and adds to its precociousness. The wine has not budged in development since it was first bottled, although it has always provided thrilling drinking because of its voluptuous texture. It needs another 5-6 years of bottle age before it will begin to develop Haut-Brion's fabulous fragrance." (100pts RP)

「......1989年的Haut Brion是我嚐過其中一個驚為天人的一級酒莊。它令我勾起1959的Haut Brion年輕時的味道,但它比當年的更豐富、更具令人驚嘆的香氣。帶著不透光的紫紅寶色澤,滲透著甜蜜的果醬、煙草、橡木、礦物和煙燻的芳香。濃縮的果味精華令這豐厚的酒帶點黏性的質感。它的酸性較低,令這早熟的葡萄酒味道更吸引。自入瓶以來它在味道上沒有多大變化,但其誘惑的酒質卻帶給味蕾上的刺激。這瓶酒還需要多5-6年時間才能展現出Haut-Brion那種誘人的酒香。」(《葡萄酒倡導家》Robert Parker評分:100)
