The 1990 Corton-Renardes has a demure, stone and boysenberry-scented nose. This medium-to-full-bodied, silky-textured wine has great depth of dark cherry fruit in its flavor profile. It remains youthfully healthy, with primary fruit flavors intermingled with hints of secondary perfumes and a structured, solid finish. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2010.
