93 Points Robert Parker
In the same ballpark quality wise, the 1988 Côte Rôtie Côte Blonde has textbook green olive, game, wild herbs and loads of sweet dark fruit, medium to full-bodied richness and good acidity in its silky, refined and fully mature profile. Drinking at point, it should continue to hold nicely, but there’s no reason to hold off.
