Wine Advocate | Rating: 93Ruchottes-Chambertin, a big, powerful, muscular, structured, almost savage wine, is impressive because of its weight and intensity, but it needs some time to reveal all its charm and finesse. The 1988 is one of Jadot's most backward wines from this vintage, and should prove to be very special if it is aged for the 6-8 years it requires to round into form: it should drink well through the first decade of the twenty-first century.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Tough, hard-edged and firmly tannic, but it has a solid core of currant and berry flavors on its compact structure. Needs lots of time to soften and broaden; should be best after 1995 to '98. 175 cases made.
