The 1988 has a classic bouquet of violets and black currants intertwined with the vanillin scents of new oak. It is medium bodied and concentrated, but extremely hard and tannic. This elegantly wrought, yet surprisingly tough-textured wine should outlive the 1989. But will it ever provide as much pleasure? Last tasted, 4/91.

Still not giving all it has to offer, this shows wonderful aromas and flavors of currant, violet, tobacco and earth. Full-bodied and powerful, with a solid underpinning of firm yet silky tannins. A classic Margaux.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal.

Deep ruby-red color with a peach-orange hue at the meniscus, black frui and cassis aoma with some sllight "wet-stone" on the nose. strong complex body, cherry-pit essence-violet and lilac undertones with still heavy tannins with a long finish.
