Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98pts: "A fabulous example, the 1990 Troplong Mondot is only equaled by such recent vintages as 2000, 2005, and 2008. The inky/garnet/plum/purple-colored 1990 exhibits notes of coffee, blackberries, licorice, camphor, and espresso. Rich and full-bodied with lavish fruit, high glycerin, low acidity, and stunning purity, it is still several years away from full maturity, and should last for another 10-15 years. Drink 2016 to 2045." (6/2009)


Wine Spectator 95pts: "A blockbuster. Amazing. I love Port, and this is close. Dark color. Very, very ripe on the nose. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of fruit and concentration in tannins. Mouthpuckering. Needs time.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2006."  (8/2000)


Jancis Robinson 18.5/20pts: Superb wine, as it always has been. Stands up mightily to any first growth. Very sweet with violet topnotes. Gorgeous, with great balance. Forgive the lack of detail; this was wine number whatnot towards the end of a great day in Pauillac and St-Estèphe and the penultimate wine of a wonderful dinner at Pichon Lalande. It did not disappoint."—JR (7/2015)
