International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 103

($550-$658) Full ruby-red. Wonderfully perfumed nose combines redcurrant, plum, mocha, minerals and rose petal. Plush, fat and rich, with great sweetness and class. This has utterly compelling mouthfilling richness. Finishes smooth and endless, with great breadth. This wine showed fabulous potential from barrel, but this is the first truly outstanding bottle I've had.

Mid ruby without much obviously visible development. Very ripe and sweet and pure. Mineral top note. Very refreshing. Cabernet purity. Delicate and ethereal. Some may find it a little light but it is very pure Margaux wth its fragrance and lift. Still quite a bit of tannin. Should be a laster, even if it may never be a blockbuster. Very, very refreshing. Very pure.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 183

I had this wine both in Seoul, Korea in February, and from my cellar in December, 2008, and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux

Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker

The 1990 Margaux continues to be the quintessential example of this chateau. In addition to being profoundly concentrated, its ethereal bouquet of sweet black fruits, cedar, spices, flowers, smoke, and vanilla is remarkably well-formed and intense. In the mouth, there is not a hard edge to this classic wine, which is super-concentrated, soft, silky-textured, and opulent. It displays an opaque ruby/purple color, a compelling bouquet, and exquisite layers of flavors that cascade over the palate without any notion of toughness or coarseness. The acidity is low, although sufficient enough to provide vibrancy and focus. This wine's significant tannin level is remarkably well-concealed by the wealth of fruit. Although still an infant in terms of development, this fabulous Margaux is already drinkable. There have been so many great vintages of Margaux under the Mentzelopoulos regime that it is almost inconceivable that the 1990 could outrank the 1982, 1983, 1985, 1986, and 1995, but, in my opinion, it possesses an extra-special dimension. While it is approachable, it will last for 25-30 years. Last tasted 11/96

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Full-bodied, yet racy and refined, with blackberry and licorice character. Long. It keeps getting better and better. Hard not to drink now. In fact, I would, but it will age well for decades. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal.

OMG. Aromas of rose petals and camphor right out of the bottle. After two hours of air, the red fruits and blueberry come forward on the palate with some secondary flavors beginning to show. The finish doesn't stop. This is my wine of the year for 2009.

I've had this wine three times, the first in '97, beutiful because of its potential but too young, the other two this past year. The next time it was very nice but suddenly, after being opened four hours, everything changed. It exploded in flavor like a nuclear bomb. In forty years of drinking wine, it is the best wine I've ever tasted.
