1990 Bordeaux Horizontal: 30 Years On

1990 Bordeaux Horizontal: 30 Years On

This wonderful tasting is the second in a two part series of mature classic Bordeaux (the first tasting 2000 Bordeaux Horizontal: 20 Years On is earlier in the week on Tuesday 14th April). Wine School founder and Chief Taster, Jimmy Smith, will be leading the evening, and has managed to obtain a selection of top Bordeaux including many Cru Classe. In addition these wines have developed well over the last three decades and show the gorgeous complexities that we all come to love of great, maturing claret.

1990 Bordeaux

The greatness of the 1990 Bordeaux vintage, one of our favourite vintages and one whose wines are currently showing even better than the 1982s in many cases, was not widely acknowledged until the late 1990s. A vintage that was released as a decent year but has gathered serious momentum over the last three decades. When Robert Parker looked at the 1982 and 1990 Bordeaux vintages in 2009, to see if they had developed equally of differently, he found that the 1990s actaully gained on his points scale in comparison to the 1982s that decreased. 1990 Bordeaux wines continue to improve. 1990 Bordeaux wine are rich, roasted, velvety, intense, sensual expressions of Bordeaux wine. Plus, the quality of the vintage allowed great wine to be produced at all levels in every appellation.
