The 1990 Le Montrachet exhibits considerable opulence, as well as a tell-tale nose of coconut, buttered apples, and smoky, toasty new oak. Magnificently deep, expansive, and rich, with moderate acidity, it should prove to be a sensational DRC Le Montrachet. It is capable of lasting 15-20 years. The DRC was unhappy with their 1992 and will not produce any Montrachet. Those millionaires lucky enough to have access to this rarity, frequently the most concentrated Chardonnay made in the world, should be pleased with the 1991 and 1990. NOTE: I recently had the good fortune to taste all the DRC Le Montrachet's from 1979 through 1989. I thought the 1986, followed by 1983, 1979, and 1989, to be show-stoppers. The 1989 has the potential to be another 1986. The 1983 is phenomenally powerful and intense. I also enjoyed the 1982 and 1985, although the latter wine is backward, with high acidity and a monolithic personality. It will be interesting to see how much complexity develops. If you are a multi-millionaire, and feel compelled to taste the most lavish Chardonnays in the world, these wines are obligatory purchases. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 89
