  • What the experts say...

    Très corsé et d'une incroyable douceur, le 1990 du Château de Malle montre également une belle pureté, et déploie un généreux fruité riche et mielleux, bien étayé par d'importants arômes de chêne neuf. Bien qu'il n'ait ni la complexité ni la richesse aromatique du 1988, il s'agit incontestablement d'une réussite extraodinaire pour le millésime. (...) Source: Robert Parker (11/94)

    The wine

    This second grand cru classé makes for a really great wine. With its straw hue, it is elegant and well-balanced on the palate. It is characterised by creamy smoothness, richness and delicious aromatic flavours of candied fruit. This is an excellent, long and full-bodied wine, skilfully produced with great expertise, which will reach maturity after a few years of aging.
