GRAND PUY LACOSTE 1990

96 Points by Wine Advocate

Pauillac Fifth Growth

Along with the 1982, 2000, and 2005, the 1990 is one of those monumental Grand Puy Lacostes that you cant have enough of. Still inky/blue/purple-colored to the rim, it boasts a gorgeously sweet, pure nose of creme de cassis, spring flowers, and a hint of wet rocks. The wine is full-bodied, plush, and expansive with impressive levels of glycerin and purity as well as an endearing texture. This 1990 is evolving at a glacial pace, but the sweetness of the tannins and low acidity ensure a delicious treat whenever a bottle is opened. It should evolve for another 20-25 years
