1990: An amber/orange edge to the color suggests full maturity, and the aromas and flavors confirm it. The medium-bodied 1990 Calon Segur exhibits sweet cedar, currant, herb, plum, and kirsch notes along with a dusty earthiness. It lacks the concentration of the finest vintages from the mid-nineties as well as every top vintage from 2000 onward. No doubt high yields and a lack of a strict selection have resulted in a wine that has consistently been on a fast evolutionary track. There is a sensuality and sexiness to it because of its full maturity. Very pleasant at present, it needs to be drunk up over the next 4-5 years.

Super. Dark ruby-red. Intense aromas of violets, licorice, plums and berries. Full-bodied, with a thick, concentrated fruit structure and soft, velvety tannins.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005. – James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000

Mid-crimson with an evolved rim. Very very ripe and sweet and furry - as so often with 1990s, more expressive of the vintage than the property. Almost medicinal and mineral and with very attractive voluptuousness. Very sweet yet lively. Not enormous but beautifully balanced. At the end it is very slightly drying out which suggests it should be drunk sooner rather than later, but it's a lovely drink now.www.jancisrobinson.com, 09 Dec 2001
