TASTING NOTES

"The 1988 reveals layer upon layer of honeyed pineapple-and orange-scented and -flavored fruit, vibrant acidity, high levels of botrytis, and a fabulously long, yet well-focused finish. It is a great wine. Anticipated maturity: 1998-2015." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Bordeaux, 3rd Edition (1998)

Rating: 96
Drink from: 1994-2015


"Green-edged straw color. Sweet butter, marzipan and a bright, riesling-like note of petrol on the nose. Fresh, firm and sharply delineated; the least rich and the driest of these three vintages, in the style of the year. But quite concentrated. Intriguing note of white raisin. Finishes very long and firm, with a slight sensation of disjointed acidity. Fairly dry on the back end." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(IWC, 07/01/1998)

Rating: 91


"Extremely polished and complex, showing beautiful dried herb, grass, honey and pine flavors. Has a long finish, medium body and just-so sweetness. Drink now through 2000." Wine Spectator
