...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...Drink now-2040. Robert Parker

It's got that mature Margaux thing: briny, ocean, smoky, dried kelp nuance. Marred only by the bretty finish.

Tasted with awe and much contemplation, the 1990 Margaux was one of the crowning jewels at my last tasting in Carmel, a parting gift opened the evening before my move to Portland. Garnet-robed with no bricking, this bottle was fresh and vibrant with pronounced aromas of forest floor, leather, earth, plums, black cherries, sandalwood, roses and dried spearmint. On the palate, ethereal lightness, with fine-boned tannins and infinitely evolving complexity. Velvety from start to finish, save for a dash of minerality at the close, rather like throwing oneself into a an impossibly soft, luxurious feather bed.
