“Parker was kinda right on awarding Mouton Rothschild 1990 a score of 84, although I totally pity Pichon Lalande 90 with a pathetic score of 79, as I think Lalande would have done much better than this Mouton 90.
Ripe fruity nose, with not much of Pauillac character. The palate was where the disaster began, it was probably one of the most diluted and worst Pauillac I’ve ever had for 1990, even fifth growth wines were better. How can a first growth get it so wrong from a fantastic 5* vintage is beyond me. “
