Tasting Notes Haut Brion 1990

98

1990: In terms of the brilliant complexity and nobility of the aromatics, scorched earth, black currants, plums, charcoal, cedar, and spices, the 1990 offers an aromatic explosion that is unparalleled. It is always fascinating to taste this wine next to the 1989, which is a monumental effort, but much more backward and denser, without the aromatic complexity of the 1990. The 1990 put on weight after bottling, and is currently rich, full-bodied, opulent, even flamboyant by Haut Brion’s standards. It is an incredible expression of a noble terroir in a top vintage. While it has been fully mature for a number of years, it does not reveal any bricking at the edge, and I suspect it will stay at this level for another 10-15 years ... but why wait? It is irresistible now. Release price: ($1200.00/case)

Tasted alongside the almighty La Mission ’89, the Haut-Brion ’90 is not to be outdone. It has a scintillating bouquet of blackberry, dark plum, warm gravel verging on terracotta aromas that are wonderfully defined. There is immense concentration on the palate that is controlled and supremely well focused with brambly black fruit, graphite, a cheeky saline notes towards the finish that fans out in inhibited fashion. This is utterly sublime and drinking perfectly now. Tasted November 2012.
