1988: a great year

Vintage year review :

The vintage year introduced itself as severe and consistant, with a nice future. The Harvest was late but perfect. Grapes were well balanced, beautiful and small. This vintage year is to be kept in order to be more harmonious.

Tasting advice:

You can still wait a bit before opening the bottles.


The Harvest in 1988.

That year in the vineyard…

Saint Vincent Tournante in Aloxe-Corton.

That year in the world…

The Soviet Union begins its Perestroika, Estonian becomes the official language of Estonia, the first National Cancer Survivors Day is held.

Celine Dion wins the Eurovision Song Contest for Switzerland, Compact Discs outsell vinyl records for the first time, “Faith” by Georges Michael reached the top sells in the USA. Rain Man, Who framed Roger Rabbit?, Die Hard and Beetlejuice are instant classics.
