A fabulous example the 1990 Troplong Mondot is only equaled by such recent vintages as 2000 2005 and 2008. The inky/garnet/plum/purple-colored 1990 exhibits notes of coffee blackberries licorice camphor and espresso. Rich and full-bodied with lavish fruit high glycerin low acidity and stunning purity it is still several years away from full maturity and should last for another 10-15 years. - Robert Parker

A deep garnet core with brick rim. The nose is reticent at first and then develops and gorgeous nose of cepes, dried prune, wet sand - quite Pomerol in style.

The nose is reticent at first and then develops and gorgeous nose of cepes, dried prune, wet sand - quite Pomerol in style. The full-bodied palate is rich and decadent though not over the top. Blackberry, smoke, bitter chocolate: indeed this reminds me of Petrus in many way. Very well-balanced, structured, vivacious, just a great 1990 that should not be drunk for another 10 years. Tasted November 2006. Drink 2016-2030+.

A blockbuster. Amazing. I love Port and this is close. Dark color. Very very ripe on the nose. Full-bodied and very chewy with loads of fruit and concentration in tannins. Mouthpuckering. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux... A blockbuster. Amazing. I love Port and this is close. Dark color. Very very ripe on the nose. Full-bodied and very chewy with loads of fruit and concentration in tannins. Mouthpuckering. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2006. 10000 cases made. - JS
