Wine By Bok - 9/10 stars
Parker gave this a score of 79! I wholeheartedly did not agree with his harsh scores, I’d challenge him to a blind tasting for such harsh scores. While obviously not the best Pichon Lalande ever produced, but certainly not deserving a 79. The only pitfall I found with the wine was that it lacks flavor with the fruits, somehow hollow mid-palette. Other than that, I get very concentrated fruits, very mellow, very Lalande style of Merlot based character. I think Parker needs some palette training. (8/2015)

John Gilman - 93 points
Prior to our vertical tasting, it had been a while since I last crossed paths with a bottle of the 1990 Pichon-Lalande, so I was extremely curious to see how this wine had evolved with a few more years of bottle age. For claret historians, this wine is important in the annals of Pichon, for it was the first vintage that Robert Parker was less than enthusiastic about, after a red hot love affair with the property that dated back at least to the 1982. As the wine now closes in on its thirtieth birthday, it is clear that Monsieur Parker was incorrect about the wine, as it has evolved beautifully, though it is far more of a middleweight year here than one might expect from this torrid vintage. The bouquet is pure, complex and nicely tertiary today, wafting from the glass in a blend of cassis, a touch of red berry, tobacco leaf, coffee, gravel, summer truffles, cigar smoke, toasty oak and a gentle topnote of menthol. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very elegant in profile, with a good core, melting tannins and lovely focus and grip on the long and complex finish. This is a very good wine and is now fully into its plateau of peak maturity. (10/2019)

Jancis Robinson - 18/20 points
Very dark blackish crimson. Notably aromatic, even a hint of herbaceousness on this bottle. Lovely balance and spread of mellow aromas. Tannins fully molten. Quite delicate for a 1990. Quite fresh enough on the finish. Subtle with a hint of tarmacadam. Lots of pleasure. Neat. (9/2010)
