Château Margaux 1990

Margaux, 1er Cru Classé

Levels into the neck, 1 label very slightly scuffed; capsules slightly scuffed

Drunk with the 1989, the room divided on individual preference; I just came down on the side of the 1989! This is true First Growth beauty, with its projection of silky, approachable fruit and sleek bilberry taste - a smoothie of a wine. Utterly tempting and full of black fruit, it has perfect balance and irreproachable class. In 2015 at the property, pure berry fruit on the nose, with enormous freshness. Glorious opulence and fighting force. This really bounds out of the glass at you. A fabulous success. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
