As disappointing as the 1989 both in the context of the vintage and the increasing quality of the wines now emerging from Rayne-Vigneau the 1988 is the best example I have tasted from this property.

In the mouth there is exceptional richness super focus because of fine acidity a wonderful touch of toasty new oak and an elegant very positive crisp finish. This is a beautifully made authoritative tasting and impeccably well-balanced Sauternes.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 1995
Beautifully crafted and creamy-textured displaying lovely pineapple honey mineral and wet earth character that unfolds its complexity to a long balanced finish. Tempting now. Best after 1996.
