CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1990 (1 6 LTR.) WA 100
Lot 242 Details

Margaux. 1er Cru Classé
u. vts. scraped, stained & soiled label. scuffed capsule.

It offers an extraordinary aromatic display of spring flowers, camphor, sweet red and black fruits, a hint of licorice, and no evidence of its 100% new oak cask aging. Round and generous with low acidity, but an opulent, full-bodied richness that is fresh with laser-like precision, this stunning wine is just beginning to reach its plateau of full maturity, where it should remain for another three decades. A sensational effort, it is one of the legendary wines made at Chateau Margaux. Reviewed by Robert Parker. October 2016 WA 100

1 6 ltr.    per lot $9,000 - $10,000
