Opened to barnyard funk, but after 45 mintues blew off to a subdued nose of anise, tobacco, and sandal wood. Taste was black fuits with totaly resolved tannis. Soft like a glove. Finish was shorter tha desired, but decent. Very enjoyable.

Wonderful mature left bank nose rises from the glass.
Talk about fine claret.
Lovely stable, dust, pencil lead and shavings, cedar wood, cigar box, leather, animal, smoke, forest floor, mushrooms, graphite, wet gravel and fine red cassis with some blackberries.
Stunning.
Palate is developed and silky, with good length, and excellent balance.
Acid and wonderful ripe cassis, dust and tobacco leafs with a touch of herbs.
Ripe and fine, with a long and complex layered finish.
Excellent.
Will easily be a vigorous wine for at least another decade, since the material in this fine wine is still very much alive.

Much better than last time I had this wine, a year ago.
Very Bordeaux, smoky, stable notes, animal, licorice, tobacco, cigar box, cedar wood, gravel, pencil shavings and floral red perfume.
Very elegant and cool, and very tale tell typical left bank.
Palate is silky and balanced, sweet and long, with fat and red fruit.
Red currants and some darker fruit, with fine acidity.
Still, somewhat thin and short on the finish.
Lighter styled, but very fine, especially the nose.
Still young, and I believe this will gain from further cellar time.

Delicious now and drinking as good as it will get. Double decanted for an hour. Taking on more character, cedar, tobacco, rich fruit- cassis and black currants make this a pleasing pour.

Stored in a cold cellar since release. Perfect cork. High fill level. Excellent condition. Slight browning at rim. Fruit, still some tannin, good length.
Lacks great depth and intensity but actually a perfect gentlemen. Unlikely to improve. Drink to 2020.

Great for the vintage. Decanted and drunk immediately. Deep, ruddy red color. But the nose is what grabs you -- classic, perfumed, rich berry, saddle, and cedar, absolutely lifting from the glass. Similar solid favors. Delicious if not particularly elegant. Excellent now, but 2-4 years from peak., I'd say.

Stall, skog, rökig väldigt balancerad doft. Även läder och ceder- Doften är extremt bra balancerad och jag skulle nästan vilja säga att doften är perfekt.

Smaken är så härlig, med tobak, blommor, cigarrlåda, höstskog, vädligt djup balancerad och faktiskt helt perfekt. Detta är ett vin som jag tycker är helt fantasistkt bra. En ynnest att få dricka.

Doft av blöt tobak, väldigt djup doft, ciggarlåda, stall och ganska rökig. Mörk frukt, rätt balancerad trots sin ungdom.

Smak av läder syrlig frukt, röda vinbär, höstskog och mull.
Riktigt riktigt bra!
verkligen min typ av vin. skrev 98-100 poäng här tidigt på kvällen på doften och aningen lägre på smaken. Ett mästervin

Nose shows super-reduced, stewed fruit: blackberry, blueberry, rhubarb, beetroot, and sweaty saddle. Beautiful structure: hard and spiky on the entry, yet softening in the mouth. Hairy tannin over strong acidity, with flavours of graphite, saddle leather, blackberry, star anise, smoky oak, and lemon peel. Intensely tannic, yet super-open and drinkable.

Requires a lot of decanting and we did so for a good two hours. Definitely helped develop the wine. Post decanting the wine actually feels older than an 8 years in a way but still not on the giving front. Interesting to see it carry soft fruit, was still quite firm but not as austere as expected. Definitely decanting helped on the tannin front. Lacks a touch of fruit to be honest to balance it out. Lets see how it evolves. A decent 89-90 for now from us.

Süsser Cabernetduft. Schön gereifter, feiner, klassischer Pauillac mit den typischen animalischen LB-Noten. Im Jahr 1988 wurden im Bordeaux langlebige, aber dafür vielfach kantige Weine erzeugt. Dieser Wein ist jedoch ohne zu dekantieren sehr zugänglich. Ich bin beindruckt und freue mich auf die nächste Flasche! 94/100

Nach Lafite war dies der beste 88er. Dahinter kommen Gruaud, Pontet Canet und Montrose......

Sweet Cabernetnose. Beautifully mature, fine, classic Pauillac with the typical animal LB notes. In 1988 were in Bordeaux durable, but often produces edged wines. However, this wine is without decant very accessible. I am impressed and look forward to the next bottle! 94/100

After Lafite this was the best from 88. Behind come Gruaud, Pontet Canet and Montrose ......

We drank this yesterday evening along side a Chateau Margaux 82. Crimson red in colour showing its youthfulness despite being 26 years old. On the nose a blend of dried red and black fruits, hints of wood. Lovely on the palate, well balanced. Very good length. A complete wine.

Showing some age but did not look particularly old. However the nose and palate exhibited lots of mushrooms, undergrowth and plums without a great deal of depth. Smooth and well balanced with few tannins remaining. This was my first bottle from the case and was quite a surprise given the other reviews. (3+/5)

Decanted 90 mins prior to serving. Lively ruby red with the usual bricking on the edge for a wine this age. Powerful nose of lead pencil, cedar and cassis, later mellowing into a more seamless bouquet of mint, leather, tar and fruits. Very long juicy finish with acidity and tannins still in abundance. A defining performance from this '96.
