1990 Château La Louvière

A great bottle opened at Dee's party tonight, and what a treat! How can you not absolutely love a good Bordeaux with some age on it?
A great nose of soil, pencil lead, graphite, tobacco, and slate, with some cassis and blackberry. This wine still looked and smelled very young in the glass. On the palate however, this wine really shined, blueberry, blackberry, and cherry jam. The fruit was definitely there for a 17 year old wine, and I think this will hold up for another few years. Is this wine at it's peak now, it is really hard to say, however, it is drinking very nicely, and the fruit is very much still alive, making the wine worthy of 92 points.
