1990 M. Chapoutier Côte-Rôtie

Community Tasting Note


80 Points

Sunday, August 2, 2009 - Brick fading to brown edges. Laurie's first impression was "paint thinner" which can't be a good sign -- her later comment had a leather reference.

For me, the wine is probably a decade too long in the bottle. The earthy, leather tone at its best fades into a sweet syrupy flavors. Medium finish. Oh well, one bottle left to drink.
