1990 Chateau Margaux Margaux
Third extraordinary vintage in a row, this wine is a monument of charm, finesse, and elegance. All the organoleptic components on the nose, as well as in the mouth, already seem blended; yet this perfect and early harmony masks as much power as that of the 1989.
International Wine CellarFull 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. Drink 2005 through 2035.
