Nice wine, a little rustic in its tannins, but offering a lot of vanilla, blackberry, black raspberry, earth and spicy charm that softens with air. Drinking well today, it might gain a bit more complexity with age, but there is no reason not to pop a cork today. 90 Points

1990 Roc de Cambes  (Côtes de Bourg) 89

Fully mature, the wine is more interesting with its earthy, tobacco, leaf, cherry, forest and cigar aromas than on the medium bodied, earthy spicy, red plum palate. If you are holding a bottle for further evolution, you are better off popping a cork, that waiting any longer. 89 Points
