The 1990 could prove to be one of the finest l'Evangiles in the post-World War II era rivaling the superb wines this renowned estate produced in 1947 1950 1975 1982 and 1985. This is a blockbuster black/ruby/purple-colored wine with a restrained but promising nose of black fruits toffee new oak and minerals. It offers exceptional richness full body an unctuous nearly port-like texture and great length and depth. The fruit's massive richness nearly obscures a considerable amount of tannin. The truth is this is one of the most tannic Pomerols of the vintage. This riveting wine resembles in weight and force the pre-1976 vintages of its neighbor Petrus. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2015.</P>

Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish. Tight muscular and concentrated. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux... Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish.
