Serious wine. Dark ruby color, with blackberry, earth and truffle character. Full-bodied and very polished, with fine tannins and a long, rich, fruity finish. I underrated this years ago. (JS)
The 1990 Haut Bailly is an excellent example of the vintage, but at the present time the wine remains still quite closed and in need of a few more years in the cellar to really reach its zenith. The nose is already offering up a lovely nose of cassis, dark berries, Cuban cigar smoke, gravel, fresh herbs and a touch of blood orange in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and just beginning to blossom, with a lovely core of fruit, perfect focus, seamless balance, still a bit of ripe tannin to resolve and excellent length and grip on the very classy finish. (Drink between 2015-2045)
The complex 1990 offers up subtle yet persistent aromas of red currants, tobacco leaf, spice box, and smoke. This medium-bodied, fully mature wine exhibits sweetness as well as lushness, and is capable of lasting another decade. (RP)
Much fresher than many 1990s with polish and a minerally edge. Racy and very fresh. Refined. A really good 1990! Long and complex. 18/20
Modestly saturated medium color. Minerally. blackcurrant aromas with notes or brick, leather and cigar ash. Lovely, subtle flavor, but wrapped tight by sound acids; not yet showing its richness. Finishes quite firm. This would appear to have good aging potential and may be a sleeper. (ST)
