Barbaresco is one of the great wines of Italy's north-western Piedmont region. This aristocratic red has its vineyards situated in the Langhe, on the right-hand side of the Tanaro river and extending from the area north-east of Alba to the communes of Barbaresco, Nieve and Treiso. The dominant variety grown is Nebbiolo, but Dolcetto and Barbera also play a part. The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils. similar to the Tortonium soils of the Barolo and La Morra areas in Barolo. Similar to its more famous sibling Barolo, Barbaresco is made from 100% Nebbiolo and shares its cult status as one of the finest wines in the world.

St Julien, 4th Growth Classification
Notes of menthol, raspberries, chocolate, crushed rock, and a notion of flowers emerge from this medium-bodied 1990. While neither as concentrated nor ageworthy as most Branaires made in the 21st century, it is an attractive, soft, elegant wine

Medoc, Cru Bourgeois
The 1990 Chateau Cissac is deep garnet colour. Cassis, pencil shavings, cloves and a little coffee on the nose. Medium to high acid, good concentration and balance. Medium+ level of grainy tannins. Long finish.
Price: £44.95 (3 in Stock)
Decanted and served immediately. Colour is bright, brick red with a very slight brown edge. Nose is very intense and perfumed, with blackberry, liquorice, jam and cherry. Almost explosive bouquet: this is what Margaux perfume is all about. Palate continues the jammy, cherry flavours but some earthiness and a slight trace of mint freshness. Plenty of very well integrated tannins and a medium finish. Youthful, still vibrant, balanced and delicious.

From the very good 1990 vintage, the Chateau du Glana has a lot of rustic appeal. Nose of red berry and pencil shavings. Good mouthfeel - typical mature Bordeaux with tertiary characteristics and a medium finish.

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe
This bottle of 1990 displays a touch of brettanomyces on the nose, but it is not off-putting and actually complements the scents of truffle, moss and cooked meats. Medium-bodied on the palate with good acidity for the vintage, but at 21-years of age beginning to lack a little vigour. This is a pleasurable Pontet-Canet, one that deserves drinking now
Price: £119.00 (1 in Stock)
The Chateau Potensac 1990 is almost as good as their 1989. Has plenty of cassis, leaf and cedar to begin with. The wine is fresh and gains in the glass. The fruits have a ripe, creamy edge from the vintage but the wine remains savoury and true. It has ample structure beneath the flesh and is still drinking nicely. A beautiful mature older Medoc.
