Nice nose. Dark ruby color. Pretty aromas of licorice, crushed berries, currants, with a hint of tar. Full-bodied. But the palate is heavy on rubber and tar character; some may love it.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.

  • v87

Good medium color. Ripe aromas of cassis, bitter cherry and woodsmoke. Fresh, concentrated, and tightly structured. Lingering, firm finish; needs time.

Diffuse, weedy, red and black currant notes along with hints of earth and licorice emerge from this mid-weight Pauillac. The 1990 was conceived before proprietor Alfred Tesseron began to pull out all the stops in his quest for first-growth quality starting in 1994. Over the last 5-6 vintages, he has been hitting on all cylinders. Release price: ($290.00/case)
