Pauillac , 1990Chateau Mouton Rothschild
The wine has a clear, glittering colour with a slightly brickish tint, while the open and expressive nose offers well-developed aromas of blond tobacco and game together with some very pleasant mineral notes.
The attack is gentle and gradual, while the refined and silky tannic structure suggests that this Mouton Rothschild has reached full maturity.
The fruit, relatively discrete on the nose, comes into its own on the palate in flavours of macerated fruit and prunes in alcohol. An attractive, acidulated and airy finish.
