Barolo, 1990

S. Biagio di Roggero

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Price: £149.00 (2 in Stock)

Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1990

St Estephe, 2me Cru Classe

In contrast to the 1989, the 1990 is a spectacular wine, and, along with the 1986, 1982, and 1953, one of the four finest Cos d'Estournels made in the post-World War II era. Bruno Prats believes it is the finest wine he has ever made. In the most recent tasting, the 1990 was even better than in the past, charming me as well as other tasters with its flashy display of opulent Merlot (about 40% of the blend) mixed with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. It was one of the more forward 1990s in the tasting, which no doubt accounted for its precocious showing. This super-concentrated wine possesses a roasted herb, sweet, jammy black fruit-scented nose, with noteworthy opulence and succulence.

Chateau Coufran, 1990

Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois

The fruit has started to go towards the drier side and the sweetness is taken up by forest floor notes. There is a nice balance between the remaining tannin, acidity and alcohol. Works very well with food.

Chateau d'Issan, 1990

Margaux

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.

Chateau Du Glana, 1990

St Julien

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.

Chateau Pontet Canet, 1990

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)

Chateau Potensac, 1990

Medoc

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.

Price: £49.95 (8 in Stock)
