Lot #2. Margaux 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 100 RP.
"I had this wine both in Seoul, Korea in February, and from my cellar in December, 2008, and it was remarkable how identical the wines smelled and tasted. It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux." Wine Advocate #183, Jun 2009
Provenance: The Casier Cellar
Notes: Top shoudler, nicked, lightly wine stained capsule, lightly bin soiled, lightly faded, scuffed, nicked label.
