97 Points Decanter

A complex bouquet of red cherries, wild plum, raw cocoa, roast squab and pot-pourri introduces a deep and concentrated palate of rich, creamy tannins, juicy acids and an ineffable sense of completness, distinguishing it as one of the wines of the vintage in the Côte de Beaune. This will absolutely require over a decade in the cellar to express even a fraction of its ultimate potential - the 1990 is still youthful and improving at 27 years old.Drinking Window 2018 - 2070.

 

93-96 Points Burghound

Once again the beautifully well-layered nose is attractively fresh with its combination of essence of red berries, earth, orange-pekoe tea and impressive array of spice elements. The rich, round and imposingly-scaled broad-shouldered flavors display a taut but sleek muscularity and ample minerality that also suffuses the marvelously persistent and intricately well-balanced if notably firm finish. This is, quite simply, flat out sensational and potentially ranks with the best ever vintages of this storied wine, which among modern vintages would include the 1978, 1985, 1999 and 2005.
