DescriptionTaittinger Vintage Champagne 1988
Comtes de Champagnes
"As with so many '88s, almost hard in its stringency when it was introduced. At the turn of the millennium, there was a nutty weight and veils of mint aromas that were waiting to burst out in full bloom. At the end of 2003 it happened—the wine became even oilier, mintier, and fleshier than I'd understood. Wonderfully good and completely in line with the best vintages of the 1970s. With an almond, truffle and petroleum style in 2007." (96 pts. Richard Juhlin, July 2007)
Estimate: $2,600 - $3,500.
