1988 Mouton-Rothchild - Which rating is correct?!

Charles Yu | Jun 27, 2006 12:07 AM

For my best buddy's upcoming birthday, I am planning to bring along a really special wine from my cellar for his birthday dinner. I set my eyes on the 1988 Mouton since my notes told me it has a 'Wine Spectator rating of 100/100!' However, recently, I came across a copy of Robert Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide which only rated the wine a non-spectacular 88/100!! A whopping 12 points difference!! Now, who do I believe?! Any fellow chowhound tasted the wine before and can provide me with some non-bias input?! I just wanted to make sure my wine will not be the culprit of an anti-climatic experience for that special evening! Thanks!
