The 1988 Mouton has an attractive aroma of exotic spices, minerals, coffee, black currants, and sweet oak. Much like the 1989, the bouquet is staggering, but the flavors are distinctly less profound. In the mouth, it is a much firmer, tougher, more obviously tannic wine than the 1989, with medium body and outstanding ripeness. A beautifully made 1988 that will last 20-25 years, its short finish keeps it from being sublime. The 1988 is somewhat reminiscent of the 1985, but with more tannin.

Very pretty aromas of vanilla tobacco berry and chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied with soft tannins and a berry chocolate finish. Not very dense. This pales compared with the other top Pauillacs. I never thought this was a perfect wine but it gives great pleasure.- 88/ 98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 20 000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

Though I don't consider this a perfect wine, it has always been classic in quality. It's rich and fruity, with loads of currant, tobacco, smoke and new wood on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and an elegant finish.--1988 Bordeaux... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml
