($189-$325) Full, deep red. Knockout smoky nose of cedar, leather, earth, truffle and game. Then rather tightly coiled and far less pliant than the nose would suggest. Strong acids contribute to this wine rather powerful structure. But I don't find the flesh shown by the best wines from this vintage. Finishes quite firm, youthfully backward and persistent. Still needs considerable bottle aging, but will this ever be truly satisfying?

Very dark crimson with some age at the rim. Minty, exotic nose with quite a bit of dryness on the end. Some very obvious sweetness, not great intensity. Just a little tired on the end. Not enough freshness.

Considering the vintages and the estate, Mouton's performances in 1989 and 1990 are puzzling. I have tasted these wines multiple times since my last reviews appeared in print. The 1990 is a hard, lean, austere, tannic style of Mouton that I predict will never shed enough tannin to attain complete harmony and balance. The wine exhibits a deep ruby color, less noticeable sweet oak than it possessed 2-3 years ago, hints of ripe blackcurrant fruit, and an attenuated, angular, tough style that is uncharacteristic of this chateau's winemaking, as well as the character of the 1990 vintage. This wine needs at least 10-15 years of cellaring, but don't expect a balanced Mouton when the tannin fades away - the wine is not that concentrated. In the context of a great vintage, Mouton's 1990 is a disappointment.

This is slightly vegetal now, with some berry and herbal character. Not very impressive. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Drink now. 25,000 cases made.

Decanted for 2-1/2 hours. Taste at opening was quite tannic. This opened beautifully into an elegant and perfectly balanced wine. The nose was rich with fruit, unlike an earlier bottle of this that did not have much air-time. Color was consistant to the edge of the glass. Mouth feel was velvety. Taste was complex, layered, and had great depth. The finish was long, but near the end of the bottle the finish tailed off a bit without full, original flavor. Perhaps just a bit too much air or just that this wine is pushing 20 years old. A fine bottle of wine drinking beautifully right now. Being paired with a great steak didn't hurt.

Bottle showed development with aromas of ceadr wood and meatstock. Still firm tannins and well supporting acidity. Ripe and well integrated fruit with long pallette. Excellent drinking for at least following 20 years.

Tasted at the Acker BYOB. Surprisingly soft, deep red with a smoky nose. May not be at its peak yet, but very drinkable

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
