CHÂTEAU MARGAUX 1990 (OWC)
MARGAUX. 1ER CRU CLASSÉ
I HAD THIS WINE BOTH IN SEOUL, KOREA IN FEBRUARY, AND FROM MY CELLAR IN DECEMBER, 2008, AND IT WAS REMARKABLE HOW IDENTICAL THE WINES SMELLED AND TASTED. 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. WS 96 WA 100
1 3 LTR. PER LOT $5,500 - $6,500

Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
