"The 1990 Cos D'Estournel is a spectacular wine and along with the 1986,1982,and 1953 is one of the four finest Cos D'estournels made in the post World War Two era.Bruno Prats believes that it is the finest wine he has ever made.In the most recent tastings,the 1990 was even better than in the past,charming me as well as other tasters with its flashy display of opulent Merlot (about 40% of the blend) mixed with ripe Cabernet Sauvignon.It was one of the most forward 1990s in my tasting,which no doubt accounted for its precocious showing.This super-concentrated wine possesses a roasted herb,sweet,jammy,black-fruited nose,with noted opulence and succulence.Pure and full-bodied,this concentrated wine conceals more tannin than it is presently revealing.The wine is open,flattering,and impossible to resist.It will continue to mature for 15-20 years".
(95 Points).
