Black red. Coffee, cigar box and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, yet harmonious, with a lovely, silky texture. A caressing and rich wine. Gorgeous. I have underrated this in the past. Best after 2005.

Seductive, with plum, smoke and vanilla aromas and flavors, full, silky tannins and a long, rich finish. Still quite backward; needs time to unwind. Drink after 1998. 25,000 cases made.

Very tight right now; not giving much. Dark garnet color. Berry, tobacco and cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with lots of fine tannins and a firm, silky finish. Needs time to open. Best after 2008.

The 1990 gets my nod as one of the three best Moutons since the great 1959 — the others being the 1982 and 1986. It is much more concentrated, backward, and less evolved than the 1989, and it is also less aggressively, or should I say excessively oaky than its predecessor. But for the long-term, there is more glycerin and concentration, and the finish is sweeter and longer in the 1990. The 1989 should drink well at an earlier age given its 1985-ish personality, whereas the 1990 is more of a long distance runner. This great Mouton is one of the most complete wines of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2000–2025. P.S. The Maitre de Chias, Michel Bosq, continues to agree that the 1990 is superior to the 1989, largely because their crop-thinning efforts were more severe in 1990.
