Score: 89-/100Wine Spectator
Deeply colored, with a sweet, plummy, oaky nose, the 1990 represents a major improvement over the indifferent 1989. Opulent and rich, this low acid, fleshy wine lacks grip, but it does offer a big, meaty mouthful of juicy Pauillac. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2005. Feb 1993, www.robertparker.com
