95 points "Huge wine. Dark ruby-colored. Intense aromas of ripe fruit and game. Full-bodied and compacted, with masses of tannins and fruit, yet still closed and not giving much on the palate. Give this brute time. Best Cantemerle ever?--1989 Bordeaux horizontal" Best 2004-2009

92 points " Chateau Cantemerle (Haut-Médoc) 1989: This wine and the next vie for position of most richly coloured wine of the flight. A perfumed nose, with cigar box and freshly rolled tobacco leaves. Another elegant palate, with a good balance, although with plentiful summer berry fruits. Full bodied, maintaining a smooth, rounded texture through the palate. Finishes well, and has good length. Tannins much more integrated than the previous wines. Ready for drinking now. Very good. "
