Bordeaux Book(1998) Author: Robert Parker

The 1988 Haut-Brion is built along the lines of the 1966, but it is more concentrated and powerful. The dense bouquet of tobacco, ripe, black fruits and spicy oak has just begun to develop. The wine is medium-bodied, rich, and tannic, with a good inner-core of fruit. This wine will have to be cellared until the end of this century.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

The wine of the vintage and one of the greatest Haut-Brions ever made. Superpowerful and ripe, with masses of spice, mint and berry character. Full-bodied, with full yet polished tannins, this wine is a joy to taste and will be for decades.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal.

not impressive. Good texture. Not balanced,tatses of chenkicals. Unpleasant rand aftertaste. Seems the 88s are not worthwhile resting on.
