1988 Wine Vintage Report

1988 Vintage Port :

1988 Port: 1988 was a very difficult growing year, with bad weather in the spring and summer resulting in a small crop of average quality. As a result there was no declaration of vintage (a mark of the highest quality). Nevertheless, some very attractive single quinta ports were produced.

1988 Italian :

1988 Italian Wines were produced in an excellent, almost outstanding vintage. Good growing conditions particularly in Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines that will hold for many years to come.

1988 Bordeaux :

1988 Bordeaux Wine: The first in a trio of great vintages and one that has been rather overshadowed by the 89s and 90s. 1988 is the most classic of the trio, with many of the wines not being overtly fruit-driven but having levels of extract and concentration that that make them perfect candidates for keeping.

1988 Chateau Lascombes

A beautiful example. On opening a beautiful cedar bouquet, but subdued in the mouth; after a couple of hours in the decanter this is really singing, still some red fruit, some meat, and that classic mature Bordeaux feel.
