Average critic rating : 90.5 points



The 1990 is a big, chewy, sweet, opulent St.-Emilion with good body and intensity, as well as a deep mouth-feel. There are gobs of fruit, plenty of spices and herbs, and a nice touch of sweet vanillin from the new oak. Drink it over the next decade. It is the finest Fonroque in decades. Wine Advocate.February, 1993



A huge 1990 with amazing concentration of fruit.This is how Bordeaux used to be. Dark ruby-garnetcolor. Loads of plum, berry and mineral character.Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins. Anabsolute monster.--1990 Bordeauxretrospective. Best after 2005. 6,500 cases made.-James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2000
