Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Delectable Wine
9.8

The 1990 Cheval Blanc is a vintage that once upon a time I drank regularly, although I had not seen it since March 2016. Poured against the 1990 Lafite-Rothschild, this is the clear winner. Still youthful in color with modest bricking. The bouquet explodes from the glass with kirsch, mulberry, antique furniture and black truffle scents. With aeration it becomes more savory, the Cabernet Franc wanting to see more of the olfactory action. The palate is medium-bodied and comes equipped with a stunning velvety texture. This Saint-Émilion feels spherical, conveying a sense of controlled decadence but avoiding any ostentation. This is as good a bottle as I have encountered over the years. Brilliant. Tasted at Noble Rot's “Xmas” dinner. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2019)

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Day 2 of my cold, we open an 89 lafite at work. Let's take my best shot.
A cool menthol with fennel and licorice pour out of the glass, dust is in the air, strawberries have been dried, currants stewed. Potpourri and pepper hand in hand. Lilies, pollen, honeysuckle. Nutmeg and candied ginger come next and it's time to sip before it starts to slip.
Cherries and spice, sandalwood. Depth and harmony. A tannin that is neither polished nor agressive. The potpourri is here too, and the flowers carry on 30 seconds later. The palate seems to brighten the longer I wait. Juicy wild blackberry and overripe raspberry. This actually tastes like a nice jam. Then it darkens, broadens, and holds with confidence. Now that's a sip.

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1990

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 1990 Lynch-Bages remains the towering Pauillac it has always been, even if Jean-Michel Cazes personally prefers the 1989. It has a riveting, graphite-infused bouquet that is brilliantly defined, very focused and sharp as a razor-blade. Poured directly against the 1990 Lafite-Rothschild, this Fifth Growth beats it hands down. The palate is very well structured; this is an aristocratic Lynch-Bages with impressive grip after 28 years. There is a symmetry underpinning this wine, a sense of energy undiminished by the passing years, that makes this 1990 Lynch-Bages so compelling. Just awesome. Tasted during the Christmas Dinner at Noble Rot restaurant. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2019)
