Tasting Notes

Although better than I initially rated it, the 1990 Beychevelle remains an insipid wine, exhibiting a certain dilution and shallow character. It offers herbal, earthy, raspberry, and red currant fruit followed by elevated tannins in the austere finish. It is an atypical effort for the 1990 vintage. Release price: ($215.00/case)

Score: 84

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, Maturity: n/a 01 June 2009

Both the 1989 and 1990 wines scored slightly lower than in previous tastings. The 1990, always an uninspiring effort, continues to reveal a greenness to its tannin, a hollowness in the mid-palate, and coarse tannin in the finish. It is not a top effort.

Score: 81
