Tasting Notes

95 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby color. Subdued aromas of minerals, berries, tobacco and earth. Full-bodied and very chewy, with masses of fruit and tannins. Still a baby. Really superb.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005." (08/2000) 94 points Robert Parker: "Surprisingly, the 1990 La Mission-Haut-Brion performed nearly as well as the 1989. Three of the tasters in the group of seven who participated in this blind tasting rated it higher than the 1989. I make this point because I think the 1990 is improving in the bottle, similar to the evolution of the 1990 Haut-Brion. The 1990 La Mission performed well-above my original score of 92. The wine is ostentatious, with a sweet, spicy, cedary, fruitcake, roasted black fruit-scented nose, admirable richness, a juicy, succulent, voluptuous texture, gobs of fruit and glycerin, low acidity, and a full-bodied, layered finish. This splendidly chewy, intense La Mission-Haut-Brion will come close to matching the quality of the legendary 1989. It will continue to drink well for another two decades." (02/97)
