Possessing the quintessential Graves elegance and perfume the 1988 is impressively deep in color for a Graves with a thrillingly fragrant nose of roasted chestnuts tobacco currants and earthy stones. One notices that this is an atypically backward full Pape-Clement but there is wonderful ripeness and high velvety tannins. The finish is all smoky-scented black-cherries.
