1990 Château Haut-Brion
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc: Often overshadowed by the previous vintage, the 1990 certainly deserves equal attention.
SBerry Bros & Rudd review: Deep red colour with hints of tawny at the rim. Very expressive bouquet,typical Graves earthy, warm tobacco leaf and cigar box. On the palate a realkernel of sweetness on the mid-palate, lovely texture in the mouth, very wellbalanced, fresh, with a long, exemplary finish. Ready to drink now with greatpleasure but not in any way tiring.
DecanterRating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very deep red; intense new oak nose, very stylish and ripe; soft, dense, rich, very concentrated, oaky but not hard, closed but with tremendous extract, elegant too; very good length.
