haggis, probably others can help more than I can. I believe the Suduiraut was the only 1988 Sauternes I've had. Based on tasting many different vintages of Suduiraut, I felt the 1988 was a solid wine, but lacked the richness of the better vintages. I'd classify it as below average, but still good. The 1988 Sauternes vintage is purportedly outstanding.
Just one more sip.
