90 Points Robert Parker
A consistent over-achiever, Larmande's 1988 is thrilling. Black/ruby/purple in color, with a super bouquet of plums, minerals, and spicy new oak, this rich, highly extracted, lusciously put together St.-Emilion has gorgeous extract levels. Deep, full-bodied, impeccably pure, and well-balanced, it should drink well for the next 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: Now-2002.
