Château Margaux 1990
Margaux, 1er cru classé
Scuffed capsules. Bin-soiled and slightly fading labels. Levels four into neck and two base of neck
Tasting note: Even in cask, lean, stylish and supple, its inimitable aroma, raspberry-like, quick to evolve. Developing well through that decade, fragrant, fleshy. At ten years of age, rich nose of great depth; sweet, well constituted, excellent length. Most recently: plummy, deep core but starting to mature; very fragrant bouquet; lovely flavour, excellent balance but very tannic – needed food, and more time. Last tasted May 2005 ***(*) 2008 – 2020.
