Château Lafite Rothschild 1988
Wine Spectator (30.11.1998) : 90
Bright, crisp flavors of cranberry, raspberry and cherry are accented by stylish butter and nutmeg notes from aging in new oak barrels. A bit lean, but it's a classic claret in its balance.

Tasted 7 Times Since Bottling With Consistent Notes.
Broodingly backward and in need of considerable bottle age, the 1988 is a classic expression of Lafite. This deeply-colored wine exhibits the tell-tale Lafite bouquet of cedar, subtle herbs, dried pit fruits, minerals, and cassis. Extremely concentrated, with brilliantly focused flavors and huge tannins, this backward, yet impressively endowed Lafite-Rothschild may well turn out to be the wine of the vintage!
