Ratings & Tasting Notes:
95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The massively rich, yet fresh, lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery, honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky ceme brulee. The wine’s zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030. (RP) (1/1998)
93 points Wine Spectator
Yellow and gold color. Beautiful honey, lemon cream pie and dried pineapple. Full-bodied, very sweet and layered, with loads of butterscotch, cream and honey on the finish. Powerful, rich and complex. (JS, Web-2009)
