Ferociously hard from cask, the 1988 La Mission is now exhibiting an attractive opulence and gobs of fruit. It has turned out to be a beautifully made, deep, full-bodied, concentrated, rich, well-structured wine that will last for 15-20 years. It is a bigger, deeper, yet softer, more concentrated wine than its neighbor, Haut-Brion.

I don't remember the '88 La Mission as being so wonderfully opulent. It shows fabulous violet, berry and dried fruit aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, ripe and delicious aftertaste.
