1990 Wine and Port Vintage

Vintage Port: Although it was not a general declaration, the 1990 Vintage produced abundant quantities of good quality port wine, a small amount of which was outstanding.
 
Italian: 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 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 Chateau D'Issan

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.

1990 Crusted Port

New

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.

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.

A fully mature, elegant 1990 with an exceptionally flowery, berry, white chocolate, and smoky oak-scented nose, this fleshy, mid-weight La Lagune exhibits a velvety texture and no hard edges. It is an endearing wine that needs to be drunk over the next 5-6 years - Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com

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

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.

Monbazillac, 1990

Chateau Le Barradis

Monbazillac is an AOC appellation for sweet wines made in an area in the wider region of Bergerac in Bordeaux,southwestern France. While not as famous nor as expensive as their western neighbors from Sauternes, Monbazillac wines are some of the most well-known sweet white wines produced in France, from botrytis-affected Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Monbazillac wines are often differentiated from the sweet wines of Bordeaux by their full-flavored profile when young (honey, apricot and sweet figs are used to describe them), and by a creamy, nutty character which they develop over time.

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,

Nebbiolo, 1990

Scarpa

The Nebbiolo has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavored wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.
