Château Margaux 1988
Margaux - First Grand Cru Rated
Great Vintage : 95/100 Wine Spectator
Cellaring : Drink now through 2025.
Tasted in 2014 by James Molesworth: "This wine has both sinew and flesh, with taut notes of dried currant, blackberry and plum skin that are forced outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus quickly fill in behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's scent here too. Seriously long and the most neglected of the truly great vintages here."
