Some notes from the experts:

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Somewhat austere but very successful for the vintage, Pichon-Lalande’s 1988 has a dark garnet colour and an intriguing nose of compost, earth, black currants, licorice, and weedy tobacco. The wine is medium-bodied with a sweet, relatively expansive mid-palate and slightly rugged tannins in the increasingly attenuated finish. (RP) (1/2003)

92 points Wine Spectator
Aromas of black olive, blackberry and currant. Complex and fascinating. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Pretty and satisfying. (JS, Web Only-2009)
