1990 VINTAGE

93 Gorgeous aromas of tobacco, meat and dried fruits. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a fresh fruit and earth finish. Another winner from Domaine de Chevalier. --1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2003. 7,000 cases made. –JS
90 The fully mature 1990 Domaine de Chevalier exhibits some sweet currant, loamy soil, roasted herb, and spice box notes in its surprisingly complex and noble, but evolved aromas. Medium-bodied with supple tannins as well as very good concentration, it should be consumed over the next 5-8 years.
A rich nose of cedar and cigar-box aromas and a touch of coffee and toffee. Full bodied on entry with rich red and black fruit and ripe tannins.
17.5 Rich, ripe nose. Dense and velvety. Interesting – more layers than many of the wines. Round and gentle and layered. Subtle. Slightly volatile and slightly old-fashioned in structure and some rather dry, dusty tannins. Quite long.
