A sensational effort and one of the two finest Clinets made before the 2008 this prodigious wine made by the late Jean-Michel Arcaute has always been a sprinter out of the gate. Even at age 19 it continues to strut its stuff. A dense blue/garnet/purple hue exhibits slight lightening at the edge and the gorgeous nose offers up aromas of sweet blueberries licorice smoke acacia flowers and camphor. Full-bodied with silky tannins low acidity and terrific purity this 1990 has hit its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for another decade.

Lots of ripe fruit.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective... Beautifully crafted red. Brilliant ruby color. Aromas of fresh berries blackberries and chocolate jump from the glass.
