Rating: 94 Points (Steven Tanzer)

"Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout nose of aromatic herbs, strawberry, sweet spices and acacia flower; yet another wine strongly marked by its cabernet franc presence. Fresh and vibrant, this absolutely dances on the palate with strawberry, sour red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by gunflint and herbs. High acidity provides great clarity and cut to the long, floral, smoothly tannic finish. This has improved considerably with bottle age. Harvested from September 18 through October 3, this Mouton offers amazing balance and fragrance. In 1990 Mouton was still using a heavy toast for its barriques, which resulted in a smoky quality in the wines that was considered by many to be just as typical of Mouton as its opulence."

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has an intense, garnet red colour with a coppery tint and a highly refined nose, mingling attractive floral notes of lily and lilac with more complex aromas of vanilla, liquorice, tobacco and chocolate, then some more mineral notes that emerge with airing.

Full on the palate, its tannins are enfolded in a stylish structure that melts into a rich array of flavours in which kirsch and blackcurrant liqueur combine with coffee, caramel and a touch of menthol.

The finish is fresh and well-balanced, pleasantly long, combining power and refinement. A classic Pauillac.
