ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Gratien's 1990 (65% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier) has white fruit and toast aromas. It is exquisitely balanced, elegant, with loads of underlying pears, apples, yeast, and cream flavors. This classic, age-worthy (I've tasted Gratiens back to the Sixties, and they can evolve magnificently) wine can be drunk now or held in a proper cellar for 15+ years.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Incredibly fresh and youthful, this 1990 seemingly hasn't budged, its mélange of dough, apple, fig and citrus suspended in the elegant structure. Very firm and minerally, with a subtle finish, it's tight and lean overall.
An bouquet initial burst of fruity, biscuity flavors with notes of almond and nuts, followed by a second nose of red plums and mirabelles. On the palate a delightfully fresh initial impression, pure notes of autumn fruits with a hint of mirabelles. Overall a perfect balance of alcohol, sweetness and acid. The bouquet and palate are in perfect harmony. An excellent vintage that will take its place in the history of the centuries.
