($469-$658) Medium-deep red. Great vibrant nose of redcurrant, licorice, minerals and tobacco, along with a minty austerity. Thick and large-scaled, like an essence of Pauillac. Really explodes in the middle palate. Incredible unfolding peacock tail of a finish. A monumental, powerfully structured wine with great long-term aging potential.

Bright, dark cherry red. Though definitely not that deeply coloured. Very firm on the nose - denser than the Lafite and Margaux 1990s tasted alongside. Very fresh start and then lots of bloodiness and minerals. Very intense and deep with some well-disguised tannins on the end. Very grown up. Dry finish. Good attack but no flattering sweetness. Needs time still.

This is a beauty, but not the awesome blockbuster I remembered. There is a roasted, earthy, hot year character with extremely low acidity, fleshy, seductive, opulently-textured flavors, and a full-bodied finish with considerable amounts of glycerin and tannin. The wine was sweet, accessible, and seductive on the attack, but it closed down in the mouth. Interestingly, when I previously tasted this wine (about six months ago) from a bottle in my cellar, I found it to be impenetrable, needing at least 6-10 years of further cellaring. Based on this example from the Chateau's cellar, it could be drunk now. In any event, it will last 25-30 years, but is it the immortal classic many observers, including myself, thought it was?

This is one of my favorite wines ever. Full-bodied, with layers of silky fruit and masses of currant, mineral and berry character. Amazing. It's a wine with perfect structure, perfect strength. It's 1961 Latour in modern clothes. It's hard not to drink it now. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal.

One of the best buys I ever made was buying 1990 Latour for $35 each when Liquor Barn went out of business in the early nineties. As a result, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for this vintage. Despite my fond remembrances, every time I have tasted the '90 I have found it to be not nearly as good as the pundits say it is. A complex/herbal nose of sweet fruit, green pepper, espresso, smoky raisins, Milky way bars, and dust. Chimerical bouquet. Beautifully elegant on the palate with a lengthy fruit finish. Raisiny fruit flavors with herbal overtones.

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.
