The 1990 vintage of this wine was ranked #9 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1993
The color is rich and deep with purply red nuances. The nose is dominated by fresh red fruits with no over ripeness and by toasty notes. The fresh fruit, with a zest of citrus, coats the wood and tar/liquorice aromas. In the palate, the entry is well-structured and ample ; the development remains virile, very generous and remarkably powerfull ; the very long finish offers sweetness without tanic harshness.
It's a typical vintage of the Médoc marrying concentrated elegance and unctuosity whilst preserving the freshness brought by the great cabernets.
