Footnotes

  • "More than any other recent vintage, the 1990 reminds me of what Chateau Margaux's classic 1953 might have tasted like at age three. Not a heavyweight in the style of their 1982, the 1990 exhibits an ethereal bouquet of flowers, cassis, smoke, new oak, and oriental spices. The tannins are significant but tender, and the wine is expansive, with remarkable finesse, richness, and a smooth-as-silk finish. The wine's exceptional richness and harmony are hallmarks. This vintage gets my nod as the most classic example of Margaux made under the Mentzelopoulos administration. 1990 is a majestic vintage for Chateau Margaux, as well as one of the greatest wines of this superb vintage."
