Delightful. Tastes "light" but lovely fruit and integration. Not a great deal of length in the mouth. Definately drink now. Read more

A bit on the austere side at first in the nose and on the palate but after 20 minutes of breathing developed into a well balanced wine. Color, mahogany around the edges and fruit still strong with soft tanins.

Well cellared for the last 12 years, this is the third of 6. Wonderful St Julien nose, perfect village mix, couldn't be anything else...great colour, still bright red to the edge, nose is still slightly hard, a perfect blend of fruit and tanins, total perfection as claret. Far better than I expected from this now unpopular property, this is a total delight. 11/10 for this effort, skilled winemaking that is the epitome of what makes village wines so rewarding.... Would you pay €100+ for this? Not sure, but I paid €28 in 1998 and it's wonderful, a real treat and totally memorable..nose and taste logged forever as a real star.

One of the best bottles from Beychevelle in a long time. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and aromas of raspberry and mint with a hint of violet. Lead pencil and fruit appear on the long aftertaste.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2000. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Beychevelle 750ml
