1990 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port:


1990-wine-gifts

The 1990 Port vintage produced abundant quantities of good quality port wine. Generally produced as Single Qunitas and outstanding Colheita Port. Paul Symington writes "The Douro 1990 Vintage can be summed up in just four words – production, enormous – quality, excellent. The 1990 Vintage has probably favoured not so much the very early starting quintas, but those whose grapes were picked from the third week of September onwards; however, overall quality promises to be good to excellent." 29 October 1990.



 
Italian: 1990 was a spectacular vintage for Italy, one of the best in modern times. Most producers made very good wines at all levels. The wines are drinking well but will continue to develop with good cellaring.
 
Bordeaux: 1990 Wine Vintage was the third year in a row of excellent Bordeaux vintages. The hot, dry sunny year ensured that, like many of the great vintages, 1990 produced rich wines from across the Bordeaux region. Many of the red wines from this vintage have a roasted or baked quality derived from the hot sun ripening the grapes. The vintage is characterised by having a tannic quality coupled with low acidity. Most of the quality wines from this vintage are still at the peak of their maturity, making them great 29 year old wine gifts for a birthday or anniversary.
 
Champagne: A superb year and one of the top half-dozen vintages of the last century. The champagnes display good body and marvellous depth of fruit as well as great finesse and very good longevity. The best will be drinking well for many years to come.

1990 Crusted Port

Wine Society Bottling

A typical crusted port has a power complexity similar to a vintage port with sweet, rich, spicy red and black fruit harmoniously integrated. Crusted ports rather than a product from a single vintage are a blend from various years. Crusted is made in a similar way to vintage port however since this is a blend, the vintage year is not allowed to be prominent on the label. The vintage appearing on the label refers to the bottling date instead.

Baron de Sigognac, 1990

Armagnac ( Comes in Original Sigognac Wooden Box as illustrated)

The Armagnac is made from a blend of Baco and Ugni Blanc, the predominant grapes used in the production of Armagnac.

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 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.

Chateau Yquem, 1990

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

Spends three years in barrel, and keeps and improves for 15, 50, even 100+ years in great vintages.

This is Madeira Wine.


Tasting Notes;
Intensely rich nose and a full rich mouthful of raisins and caramel, a powerful long finish and finely balanced acidity belying its relative youth.

Domaine de Chevalier, 1990

Graves Pessac-Leogan

*** 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ***

Tasted from a magnum purchased on release, the 1990 Domaine de Chevalier is a magnificent Pessac-Léognan, one that I was gobsmacked to find that I have never tasted before! It has one of those entrancing, tertiary, smoke and mushroom scented bouquets, secondary aromas that are beautifully defined and exude the essence of Pessac-Léognan. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, still plenty of black dusky fruit infused with pencil lead, tobacco and dried herbs such as rosemary and sage. The balance is delectable and it fans out beautifully on the finish.

In undeclared years, its wine is bottled as Malvedos, which can be better than many Vintage Ports. The '90 is no exception; surprisingly rich and concentrated, with intense blackberry and plum-like flavours, fine balance and a tannic, long finish. Excellent quality and value".

Muffato della Sala, 1990

Castello della Sala - Antinori

The wine shows a luminous and intense golden yellow color. The nose is delicate and elegant with its floral scents, but is dominated by the notes of ripe fruit, apricot and peach, along with hints of citrus fruit accompanied by sensations of minerals and iodine. The palate confirms the timber and character of the nose. A long and balanced wine in which sweetness and freshness fuse in perfect harmony.

Muffato della Sala is produced from grapes attacked by “noble rot”, harvested in early November when morning mists have favored the development of botrytis cinerea on the grapes. This mould reduces the water content of the berries,
