1990 VINTAGE

94+ 2011 tasting. Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout nose of aromatic herbs, strawberry, sweet spices and acacia flower; strongly marked by its Cabernet Franc presence. Fresh and vibrant, this absolutely dances on the palate with strawberry, sour red cherry and raspberry flavors complicated by gunflint and herbs. High acidity provides great clarity and cut to the long, floral, smoothly tannic finish. This has improved considerably with bottle age. This Mouton offers amazing balance and fragrance. - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
