Lot #542. Beauséjour Duffau-Lagarrosse 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"One of the most singular Bordeaux I have ever tasted, it verges on being port-like, but it pulls back because of the extraordinary minerality and laser-like focus. The wine is massively concentrated, still black/purple-hued to the rim, and offers a nose of incense, blackberries, blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, and forest floor. It reveals low acidity and high tannins, which are largely concealed by the sheer concentration and lavish glycerin the wine possesses. Aging at a glacial pace, it is approachable, but it will not hit its peak until 2020; it should last for twenty years thereafter." Wine Advocate #183, Jun 2009
Notes: Base neck, heavily stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $425
