Cabernet, 1990

Quinta do Poço do Lobo (Magnum)

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character,

Chateau Haut Brion, 1990

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe

The only non-Médoc estate to be included in the famous 1855 classification, Château Haut-Brion’s viticultural history can be traced back further than its Médoc first growth counterparts. Located in the bustling commercial suburb of Pessac, Haut-Brion was purchased by the American family Dillon in 1935 when it was in a considerably poor condition, the family invested greatly in the estate and today this property is one of the showpiece estates of Graves. At Haut-Brion wines are fermented in stainless steel vats, after which the wine will spend 22 months, sometimes more, in new oak barrels before being bottled unfiltered.

Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey, 1990

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe
Half Bottle 37.5 cl

The 1990 Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey offers a compelling, flowery, honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky creme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for may years.

2nd Growth St Julien

1990 Chateau Leoville Barton Reviews

93+ pts Robert Parker
93pts Wine Spectator
18/20 Jancis Robinson
19/20 Vinum


Very, very rich and velvety. Meaty and seductive. Rich, exotically floral. (It certainly seemed as though from a completely different century when served immediately after the 1961.) Very sweet and drinking beautifully now." 18.5/20 Jancis Robinson

Chateau Leoville Poyferre, 1990

St Julien 2me Cru Classe
97 Points - Robert Parker

Reviews:
Far less evolved than the 1989 and still youthful in colour. A rich ripe nose is followed by a dense, well endowed palate packed with black fruits, minerals and toasty oak. Without doubt the finest Leoville-Poyferre of the last 25 years. RP 97 Points

Chateau Mouton Rothschild , 1990

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

Scintillating nose; absolutely gorgeous aromas of vanilla-smothered berries, violet, and a fine, earthy, truffly quality with hints of cedar, coffee and spice. Deep and deliciously inviting. The palate lets this stunning first impression down slightly, with slightly under-powered cherry and blackcurrant fruit. There's a background of sweet oak, and good freshness with balanced acidity and fine tannins.

Chateau Palmer, 1990

Margaux 3me Cru Classe

Dark plum/garnet with a sweet and generous bouquet of baked fruit, spice box, candied citrus fruits and sweet liquorice intermixed with some chocolate, plum and black cherries, this is a lush, velvety-textured wine with constant freshness, exotic aromas and almost oriental spices.

Montepulciano, 1990

d'Abruzzo, Miglianico

Montepulciano is a red wine grape variety grown widely in central Italy, most notably its eastern Abruzzo, Marche and Molise regions. The variety was named after the Tuscan parish of Montepulciano, but, confusingly, is not used in the famous wines produced there (see Vino Nobile di Montepulciano). Globally appreciated for their soft flavors, strong color and gentle tannins, Montepulciano wines are typically best consumed in their youth and with food. The deep-purple juice of Montepulciano grapes is used in varying proportions to produce wines under roughly 50 of Italy's DOC and DOCG titles. Although sometimes used on its own,
