Region 'Vintage Champagne' - Year 1988
|keep||Classically structured, concentrated wines with sufficient acidity for long ageing|
The spring was mild and flowering was completed without problems. July was cloudy but better conditions followed, although there was some heavy rain in mid-September.
Nonetheless quality proved excellent, and almost all producers released vintage wines. These are classic wines, characterised by their backbone and slight austerity. They will take longer to mature than the more opulent 1989s.
