    This is one of the more mineral, earthy, and powerful Poujeaux expressions I've ever tasted with balanced fruit that really provides the foundation for some of the wines terroir driven flavors. The finish is leaner with more gravel and earth. Good stuff for those looking for Bordeaux beyond simple fruit.

    For decades, I have been preaching the gospel of Poujeaux to anyone who would listen. I believe that these wines, given enough time in the cellar, will stand on the table with anything. This 1990 has been given that time in the cool cellars of one of our negociant partners in Bordeaux, and is not drinking absolutely beautifully. If you have been invited to a wine dinner where everyone else is bringing $200 bottles, you will not be out classed with this beauty from Moulis. It has integrated and gained complexity over the last 27 years, but still has excellent concentration and ripe Cabernet fruit. The finish is long, detailed and far more complex than many more expensive, famous bottles that I have had lately.

    Wow... Famous name, famous vintage, and pure deliciousness make this bottle a knock-out. I'm typically not as much of an "older wine" (savory, leathery) kind of guy, but I thought this was an impressive wine. The aromas are mellow, yet alive and lifted, filled with plum, blackberries, mint, graphite, vanilla, bell pepper, and leather. The palate is just as well supported; the oak held up nicely and definitely help this bottle retain its drinkability. Dark fruit flavors, forest floor, and cassis round everything up to a nice and easy finish.

    Here is a wine that is absolutely ready to drink. We all know how beautiful 1990 was, and it shows here. The fruit is very much present, along with its silky tannins in this medium body Bordeaux. Absolutely perfect choice for an elegant dinner.
