Hi-I'm new to this-I just received a bottle of Chateau Margaux Premier Cru 1990 for a wedding gift and am wondering about it. Is it good? Should I keep it for a while? Thanks for your help!

You have good taste in friends. Chateau Margaux is one of the most prestigious wines in the world--with prices to match. It is also of very high quality. In a good vintage, which 1990 is, Margaux can easily improve in bottle for 20 years. If you have adequate storage conditions--constant temperature in the fifties or low sixties--you may want to hold onto it for at least a few years. You are in for a glorious wine experience. Cheers!


p.s. I notice you have also posted this question under Collectibles. The inhabitants of this board prefer messages only to be posted in one place.

Wow, I am excited. Thank you for the information. Sorry about the double message posting, now I know. In a regular house without a basement, any ideas on where to store the wine. I appreciate your help with this.

Would have sworn we saw this question someplace else before. In regard to the follow up question; in the bottom of the most central closet in the place, so long as it doesn't have a heating duct in it. If you want to hang onto it for several more years, you might want to check into how much a local retailer would store it properly for you.

Thank you-I had posted both my messages at the same time not knowing that was not acceptable. Sorry [img][/img] Thanks again for your help! I will check with the local wine stores. This wine board is wonderful.

Hi Allie and welcome to the board. Sorry the more acerbic members have chided you on youre double posting. I, being of a kinder and gentler spirit would never do this. I`m also open as Palladin used to say, "Have Vinium-Will Travel. LETS OPEN THAT SUCKER! " WW
