Wine Critic Reviews:

...It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux...Drink now-2040.

  1. classy and delicious, like an expensive dessert at the Ritz

    A classic vintage for the producer, although your personal preference may lie elsewhere. I ordered a bottle for my sister's wedding, and she came back with the highest praise! The wine certainly boasts high power and a fat, rich mouthfeel. It's classy and delicious, like an expensive dessert at the Ritz. The combination of ripe red fruit and smokey tobacco is as classic as it gets, with some fig thrown in for good measure.<br/>It's not the most affordable wine, but it's worth every penny. You can't say you know Margaux if you haven't tasted this one. A warm recommendation from me.

    Most of you have probably heard legends about this Margaux vintage, but let me squash rumors and give a quick verdict - all of those legends are true. This is one of the best wines anyone I know has ever tasted, and I don't say that lightly. It's thick, rich, and powerful, but quite playful on the palate. The fruits are brought to a level of ripeness that I would otherwise deem impossible.<br/>If there were ever a Margaux year to recommend, it would undoubtedly be the 1990. It's as complex as they come with stunning accessibility and flavor - a masterpiece.

    High quality, with a price to match. I can't say it was easy to slot this wine into my budget plans, but it was well worth it. Some friends of mine claim this to be the ultimate vintage when it comes to Margaux, and I see where they're coming from, even if it's not my personal favorite. Expect a red fruit carpet rollout followed by intense dark fruits and a vibrant, almost seductive floral perfume.<br/>The low acidity is where the wine loses me, but it's hardly enough to call it anything less than superb. Maybe another bottle is needed to excite me the same way it did all my friends.

    I can't remember a single vintage in Margaux's rich history that outclasses the batch from 1990. Aged in 100% new oak barrels, but you could be forgiven for assuming it wasn't. It's not very acidic, but the intensity and richness of flavor caught me off-guard as I casually took a sip during a conversation with a friend. It's such a precisely concocted drink, a masterpiece among Bordeaux's many. I can't find words powerful enough to describe it. A fragrant spring flower aroma approaches you, hiding some very powerful notes of red and dark fruit. The finish is long and absolutely mouth-watering. I can't wait to get my hands on more of these.
