International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

(the blend features just 44% cabernet sauvignon, with 44% merlot and 12% petit verdot; this is the first vintage to include petit verdot) Good deep, full ruby. Explosive, rather wild aromas of dark fruits, leather, animal fur and chocolate. Fat, lush and silky, with a seamless texture and a deep sweetness. This offers terrific volume and finishes very smooth and very long, with utterly suave tannins, notes of leather and game, and a suggestion of surmaturite According to Ducasse, 1990 witnessed cooler September nights than '89 and thus offered "better conditions for producing great wine. " A superb showing.

First bottle: not 100% clean. Medium depth, glowing crimson. Very rich and sweet and fleshy. Very rich and almost right bank in its appeal. A hint of decay. Still lots of pleasure though.Second bottle: more opulent on the nose. Very clean and fresh and much more youthful than the first bottle. Hint of malty chocolate. Very sweet and rich, though with lots of development ahead. Younger than many 1990s. Great stuff.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 109

This muscular, thick, unctuous, lavishly-oaked wine may cause raised eyebrows by those looking for something restrained and understated. There is no doubting the hedonistic appeal of this style of wine. The 1990 is another massive, highly-extracted, boldly-wooded, spicy, dark purple-colored wine with high tannin, low acidity, and layers of jammy fruit. The huge glycerin and massive mouthfeel in this unctuously-textured wine are difficult to ignore. I suspect this wine will become more defined after it loses its baby fat. Although fun to taste at present, it does need 3-4 more years of cellaring; it should last for 20-25 years.

Blockbuster. Dark ruby color. Intense aromas ofblackberries, currants, cherries and minerals.Full-bodied, very tannic yet velvety in texture.Black licorice and berry character lasts forminutes. Long, chewy finish. A monster.--1990Bordeaux retrospective. 20,000 cases made.

Consistent with past notes...excellent purity, red fruit core, mature but lively, exquisite and floral aromas, medium to full body, long finish. The red currant, re berry well integrated to the toasty and touch of mineralogy of a nearly 24 yrs old. It's a Gem from St. Julien. Enjoy.

Slightly faded ruby color. Very good flavors, fruit notes were more subdued. Very good with food. Possibly past its peak but still strong.
