A little guidance requested here- I have one bottle of the '88 Haut Brion left and haven't had one in the last few years. When should I open my final bottle?
Board-O, based solely on this bottle, there is no need to rush. That said, while the wine will hold well, I do not see it improving much past her 25th birthday. While all of the '88 Haut Brion's I have enjoyed have been rock solid if not excellent, I have yet to have a truly special bottle from this vintage.
Good luck, and look forward to hearing how your bottle shows.
