Three bottles of the 1990 tasted recently (all from my cellar) had me perplexed about where this wine is heading. It is a complex effort with lots of cedar, sweet caramelized black raspberries and cherries as well as hints of licorice and underbrush. However, the color reveals some disturbing amber at the edge, and the wine is loosely knit on the palate without the concentration and generosity I saw three or four years ago. It is either falling apart at an accelerated pace, or it is going through an awkward state. Release price: ($500.00/case) Wine Advocate.June, 2009

Tasted at the Dynasty restaurant in Hong Kong. The Chateau l’Evangile 1990 continues to evolve at a glacial pace. This bottle is less open than the one back in 2008, more austere with a quasi-Pauillac-like bouquet at first: cedar and graphite eventually ebbing away to reveal dried herbs and Italian dried meats. The palate is medium-bodied and more tannic than I recall and unlike other 1990 Right Banks in that it is quite linear and symmetrical, eschewing those hot summer fruits that form the leitmotif of the vintage. As they say…moody bugger! Tasted November 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Big and ripe. Dark ruby-garnet color. Very ripe berry, chocolate and plum aromas. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of tannins and a very ripe fruit finish. Tight, muscular and concentrated. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005. 4,500 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 2000.

Very deep crimson with a fully mature rim. Rich, fruity, velvety nose that is very slightly charred and, served blind, even more obviously Pomerol than a 1990. A slightly marie/oyster shells note. Velvety texture. Punchy palate impact – no fading flower. A roasted quality with an iron/mineral streak. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
