Drunk on 6/14/08 at Chapeau in San Francisco. Nose had a vegetal overtone, slightly mahogany in color. A little austere on the palette and tanins were alive and well. After one hour of airing, opened up with wonderful floral overtones that complemented the solid structure of the wine. Medium finish which was surprising - a longer one would have been more in character.

This wine, like a number of 1988s, has matured well and is just beginning to show maturity. It has a dense, somewhat rugged constitution, with plenty of density, some earthy black fruits intermixed with licorice, compost, camphor, and roasted herbs. ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Chateau Palmer 1500ml

Rather dry and austere, with some of the violet, berry and fruit character I expect in Palmer, but slightly hard and ungenerous on the palate. A big disappointment.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Chateau Palmer 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Fully mature and a very classic Palmer. Fruit bomb lovers need not apply; thisis very classy, beautifully soft, old-fashioned claret. (Joss Fowler - BBR Fine Wine Team - 11-Nov-2008)
