The 1988 is Guigal's best red Hermitage since the 1983. More concentrated than either the 1989 or 1990, it exhibits an opaque, dark ruby/purple color, and a huge, relatively undeveloped but promising perfume of cassis and minerals. In the mouth there is sensational concentration, dramatic flavors that are still in their infancy, and plenty of robust tannins in the impressively long finish.Drink Dates: 1995-2005
