"Coming from the Chateau straight to us in St Andrews, this 1990 is from one of the two exceptional vintages of 1989 and 1990. About to enter a stretch of mediocre vintages until 1995, 1990 was the last hoorah for Bordeaux before America started being really interested in Bordeaux and the prices started climbing!"
