Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Big and chewy, this muscular monster of a wine has plenty of earth, chocolate, berry and cherry aromas and flavors and a firm backbone of tannins.Author: James Laube
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96Good full red with a hint of development. Explosive, multidimensional aromas of raspberry, wild spices, meat, mocha, minerals, woodsmoke, truffle and underbrush; warm and inviting. Lush, sweet and voluminous; like liquid velvet but kept fresh by ripe acids. Finishes with superripe but serious tannins that coat the entire mouth. The longest wine yet of the series. In comparison, the '97 is even more roasted but still very young. |A big crop, ripe but not overripe. The skins ripened before the sugars.|Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2002
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96It will be interesting to follow the evolution of the 1990 Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Clos de Beze, and Chambertin. All are magnificent examples of not only the heights red burgundy can achieve, but also of the thrilling quality of the 1990 vintage. The Bonnes Mares is the sweetest and most open-knit, with layer upon layer of fruit, huge body, yet a sense of elegance and precision to its lavish richness and huge, perfumed personality. This extraordinary red burgundy is soft and more developed than either the Chambertin-Clos de Beze or Chambertin.Author: Robert Parker
Burghound | Rating: 91Still completely ruby to the rim with very expressive, very ripe and spicy mix of primary and secondary fruit aromas though the big, intense, rich, robust flavors are slightly roasted. This is quite supple for a '90 Bonnes Mares and the finish is long, complex and velvety and while this is not yet completely ready, it can be enjoyed now with fear of committing infanticide. That said, there is still plenty of underlying structure and this should continue to age well for another decade, perhaps longer. Multiple and consistent notes, several of them recent.Author: Allen Meadows

Self | Rating: 94Terrific: violet and dark fruit on the nose. Opens up in the glass to sappy smooth pinot flavors that end in a long long finish. This still has plenty of life.Drink Dates: 2005-2015Author: Conrad K
