The 1988 is probably a 30-year wine. Extremely hard and backward, but concentrated, long, and full-bodied, it reminded me of the 1975, only less savage. Let's hope the fruit holds up... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Gruaud Larose 750ml

This tight and powerful red has lots of tannin and fruit concentration. Full-bodied with lovely violet and berry aromas and flavors. Built for aging... Wine Spectator.
