Wine Spectator
Like a Michelangelo: everything is in perfect proportion. The wine of the vintage and the best from this estate since the legendary 1961. Just as it should be. A perfect wine; full-bodied, with tons of ripe fruit flavors and round tannins. Truly impressive - like one of the old greats of Bordeaux.

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Unquestionably the 1990 is the finest, most archetypical Latour since the 1982 and 1970 along with Margaux and Petrus, Latour is a strong favorite for the wine of the vintage! A triumph! It is an exceptionally powerful wine, with massive intensity, plenty of glycerin, as well as extraordinary extract and mouth-searing tannins that explode on the palate.
 

Additional Information

Sub-Region :
Pauillac
Pauillac is maybe the best appellation of Bordeaux with three of the five Premiers Grands Crus Classés and 18 Grands Crus Classés. Some of the great names in the wine world—Château Lafite, Château Latour and Château Mouton-Rothschild—call Pauillac home. Pauillac wines are generally full bodied, tannic and acidic when young; after aging, they achieve an opulent bouquet with aromas of blackcurrant and cedar. View all our items from Pauillac
Region :
France
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
