1990 Chateau Palmer Margaux

Wine Description

(From 2004 Vintage) Purple-ruby color of very high intensity. Expressive nose of very ripe dark berries, bracken, cinnamon, wood, peony, violet, smoke, and fresh mint. Perfectly ripe fruitiness, full, tender tannins and lots of freshness in the mouth. Elegance is the prevailing note here with an ideal expression of the terroir. The finish is already long and gorgeous.

Winemaker's Notes

'A beauty. Seductive, with currant, berry, tobacco, cedar and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A joyous Palmer.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now through 2010. (Aug-00)'
