1988 Bunnahabhain 30 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Bunnahabhain has been doing its thing since 1881 with just a short shutdown in the early 1980s. The massive distillery was built at a time of booming confidence in the Scotch industry and everything about it reflects that, from the enormous sprawling distillery to the massive stills. Historically destined for blends such as Cutty Sark and Famous Grouse, it's in the modern booming era of Scotch that Bunnahabhain has really come into its own as a single malt. Known today for its unpeated malt on an island famous for peated spirit, Bunna at 30 years old is ...

1988 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Frêche #17" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
New!
The wonderful and mysterious "Domaine Le Frêche" is becoming, much like Encantada's other famous estate Lous Pibous, quite well regarded. Also like Lous Pibous, Le Frêche is not the name of the domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess. The most famous is the incredible Boingniere, whose armagnacs are extremely sought-after and expensive. I...

93 points James Suckling: "There's licorice here along with mint, some lead pencil and flowers. It's full and round displaying wonderful vanilla and plum flavors. Very silky and refined yet dense and caressing. A beauty, though it does turn a little dry, always revealing its wood." (11/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty aromas of vanilla, tobacco, berry and chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a berry, chocolate finish. Not very dense. This pales compared with the other top Pauillacs. I never thought this was a perfect win...

Founded by Georges de Latour and his wife in 1900, Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) is one of Napa Valley's most historic wineries. Although famed winemaker André Tchelistcheff, "the Maestro," retired in 1973, BV's innovative winemaking program benefited from his decades as winemaker there. The Georges de Latour has been the famed estate's signature bottling for decades and represents the very best of the vintage.

96 points Vinous: "At nearly thirty years of age, the 1988 Brunello di Montalcino remains bright, vibrant and full of life. Sweet red cherry and plum flavors are pushed forward, with deeper earthy, floral and spice notes that develop in the glass. An intriguing interplay of nuance and energy separates the 1988 from most wines in this range. It remains one of my favorite Soldera wines from the 1980s. This bottle is a bit softer than others have been, but the wine is still complete, super-expressive and inviting. (AG)" (10/2016)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Lovely sweet fruit on the nose, with chocolate and flowers. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a velvety tannin structure. Tobacco and berry fruit on the finish.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. (Web Only-2009) (JS)"

1988 Soldera (Case Basse) Brunello di Montalcino
Back In Stock!
97 points Vinous: "Absolutely stunning, the 1988 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that demands undivided attention. Huge tannins provide the backdrop as this dark, brooding Brunello struts its stuff. The flavors are dark and intense throughout, with tons of energy that gives the wine its focus and sense of direction. It’s hard to move on after the 1988, a wine that captures the essence of Sangiovese from Montalcino in this great vintage." (01/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This large-scaled, intensely fragrant Brunello offers up a lavi...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 Cornas is a more tender style of Cornas than I am used to from Clape; it is not as concentrated as the 1989. It also comes across as lighter, softer, and not nearly as rich and full as most of this estate's wines tend to be. It is drinking surprisingly well at the moment. While some may applaud both the 1989's and 1988's lack of the forbiddingly raw, hard tannin that the savage wines of Cornas can possess, it is those characteristics that I feel make Cornas so distinctive, and repay those who cellar it for 10 or m...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 reveals layer upon layer of honeyed pineapple-and orange-scented and -flavored fruit, vibrant acidity, high levels of botrytis, and a fabulously long, yet well-focused finish. It is a great wine. (RP)" (12/1997) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Youthful yellow color, with aromas of sliced lemons, lemon tart, and tropical fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with medium sweetness and a lively fruity finish. Lots of dried fruit and spicy botrytis character. Refined and balanced. (JS, Web Only-2009)" Jancis Robinson...

1988 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 is a backward-styled Yquem, built along the lines of the extraordinary 1975. With a honeyed, smoky, orange/coconut/pineapple-scented nose, this powerful wine possesses full body, layers of highly concentrated, extracted flavors, considerable botrytis, and a sensational finish. (RP)" (12/1997) 96 points Vinous: "The 1988 d'Yquem is almost identical to the bottle I tasted in 2016. This is almost Barsac-like in style on the nose with scents of barley sugar, complemented by marmalade and mandarin, fresh an...

Wine Spectator: "Successful, with supple tannins and true-to-form Groth Vineyards & Winery flavors, a range of coffee, herb, currant, cedar and spice, finishing with touches of bay leaf, green bean, tobacco and mineral. Complete from start to finish. (JL)" (11/1998)

1988 Krug "Collection" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points Vinous: "The 1988 Krug makes for a fabulous start. Tasted from a perfect bottle, the 1988 remains bright and focused, with all of the energy of this great vintage very much on display. Time has naturally softened some of the contours and added a good bit of nuance, but the 1988 Krug remains a Champagne of crystalline precision. I loved it. (AG)" (06/2018) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous, exuding aromas and flavors of baked black currant, toasted hazelnut and coffee liqueur, along with subtle hints of elderflower, oyster shell and white tr...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium-gold color, with aromas of lemon tart, curd, piecrust and honey. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with bright acidity and a long, exciting finish. Balanced and refined. (JS, Web-2009)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 1988 offers the most pleasurable aromatics of the 1980s with a lifted perfumed nose of lanolin, beeswax, brown sugar and quince that all vie for attention. There is a pleasant adhesive scent and fine delineation. The palate is fresh in the mo...


Bid on this bottle of 1988 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (91RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, this was considered to be 'an uncharacteristically soft, fruity Grange.' Everyone at the tasting agreed with those comments. This wine shows a syrupy creme de cassis, earthy note, some pepper, and caramel. It is somewhat soft and accessible for such a relatively young Grange, but there is plenty of structure and tannin in the finish. It is certainly perfumed and more evolved than some of its siblings that are actually older, chronologically speaking. This wine has sweet, full-bodied, plum, cherry, and cassis flavors, with some distinct truffle and asphalt notes. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016. (RP)" (02/2002)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1988 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (92VN, 91RP). Vinous: "A layered, impeccably graceful wine, the 1988 Opus One is all about textural harmony and balance. Sweet, silky tannins wrap around the expressive fruit in a wine that stands out for its overall harmony. Dark plums, leather, tobacco and spices linger on the polished finish. This is another Opus One that relies more on balance than on pure size. The Cabernet Sauvignon is quite low in this vintage at 85%, while Cabernet Franc, at 13%, is much more pronounced. A dollop of Merlot rounds out the blend. (AG)" (06/2013)
