1990 Chambertin Grand Cru
By Domaine Leroy
Current market price
Scores and tasting notes
The medium-to-dark ruby-colored 1990 Chambertin has a sweet blackcurrant and blackberry-scented nose. Medium-to-full-bodied, it has a soft entry that expands and coats the palate with intense red and black fruits. Still quite young and primary, this concentrated, focused, and immensely persistent wine will require additional cellaring. *Readers should know that a disappointing (rated 91, certainly outstanding but not in the same league as the one served at the estate) bottle of this wine was tasted in New York City in August, 2000. Projected maturity: 2005-2010?
