Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Blockbuster. Very dark ruby color. Wonderful ripe berry, currant and floral aromas. Full-bodied, with a dense fruit structure and loads of tannins. This is very young.Author: James Suckling
Wine Advocate | Rating: 87Slightly more structured and richer than the 1989, the opulent 1990 may lack some complexity, but it offers gobs of rich, expansive, concentrated fruit in a full-bodied format. I especially admire the big, dramatic bouquet of smoke and cassis.Author: Robert Parker
Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
