Wine was one of the biggest productions and source of enrichment in the roman empire. This trade was the most important one, as the italy could not assume its own consuption. The culture of the vines itself was different : different sorts of pergolas, vines growing on trees and another philosophy of the plant considering as it was more than a vegetal. Sometimes vines were married with trees to take their strength. Many sorts of wines existed in roman antiquity, from ones from a single place, family of wines with local interpretations or aromatised recipes. Two things let the use of drinking wine growing : creation of a social hierarchy in Rome and use of wine as a medicine. As important and rich people tryed to be unique and receive there hosts with luxury, some famous people have elaborated a taste hierarchy between the wines. As many authors described the use of wine in medicine and prescribe different wines for each disease, Pline tell one of is friends to drink a glass af mulsum every morning to keep youth. Read less

The 1988 Pichon-Longueville promises to be one of the half-dozen superstars of this vintage. Surprisingly large-scaled for a 1988, with an oaky, cassis, and licorice-scented nose, it is deep in color, rich, softly tannic, medium to full-bodied, and should reach maturity early on, but keep for 15-20 years. Last tasted 1/93

Explosive fruit with strong notes of earth and cedar. Tannins are just beginning to resolve, but still quite prominent. After an hour in decanter, the fruit remained but flattened a bit, with no secondary notes to take its place. Despite that, I think this wine needs a few more years in bottle. Finish was long, delicious.
