Saint-Émilion & Pomerol, 1988

The 1988 Bordeaux vintage produced some good wines, though very few really shone. It was, however, one of the most successful vintages of the 20th century for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes. Nonetheless, because of the fact that so few of the top châteaux excelled, the 1988 vintage is more often known as a very good rather than excellent year. This does mean that some careful hunting can result in tremendous bargains, with prices usually ranging 20–50% below greater vintages.
