A huge 1990 with amazing concentration of fruit.This is how Bordeaux used to be. Dark ruby-garnetcolor. Loads of plum berry and mineral character.Full-bodied with masses of velvety tannins. Anabsolute monster.--1990... A huge 1990 with amazing concentration of fruit.This is how Bordeaux used to be. Dark ruby-garnetcolor.

The 1990 is a big chewy sweet opulent St.-Emilion with good body and intensity as well as a deep mouth-feel. There are gobs of fruit plenty of spices and herbs and a nice touch of sweet vanillin from the new oak. Drink... The 1990 is a big chewy sweet opulent St.-Emilion with good body and intensity as well as a deep mouth-feel. There are gobs of fruit plenty of spices and herbs and a nice touch of sweet vanillin from the new oak. Drink it over the next decade. It is the finest Fonroque in decades.
