The 1988 Calon-Segur outshines both wines from the more heralded vintages of 1989 and 1990. Deeply colored, superbly balanced, rich and full bodied, it appears to be a worthy candidate for another 15-20 years of longevity. It is a classic example of this chateau's wine - cedary, very fragrant, with plenty of sweet red and black currant fruit. I should also note that it is surprisingly powerful for the vintage. It gets my nod as the finest Calon-Segur between 1982 and 1995. Anticipated maturity: Now-2020. Robert Parker

Fully mature, showing nicely for an underappreciated vintage. On the herbal/earthy side of things, old style Bordeaux giving plenty of pleasure but few fireworks.
