So minty with loads of subtle ripe fruit and eucalyptus undertones. Full-bodied with ultrafine tannins and a long long finish. Caresses every inch of the palate.

The best showing yet for a wine from this under-rated vintage the dark garnet-colored 1988 Latour reveals slight amber at the edge. A bouquet of melted tar plums black currants cedar and underbrush is followed by a sweet entry with medium to full body excellent ripeness and mature tannin. It is a classic elegant Latour with more meaty vegetable-like flavors than are found in a riper year such as 1989 and 1990. The 1988 has just begun to enter its plateau of maturity where it should remain for 25 years. Anticipated maturity: now-2025</P>
