What to expect from an '88 Bordeaux...

cocktailqueen77 | Mar 12, 2008 03:15 PM

Hello Wine 'Hounds!!

I need some advice and/or wisdom for my impulse purchase: an '88 Beychevelle. I searched this board for an '88, but only saw comments on '82's (which I almost bought for my b-day awhile back but it sold out too fast) or '89's. I bought this wine to celebrate a particular goal, which should be obtained within a couple months, so I will be opening this wine soon (unless I should wait, that's why I am seeking help - the amount of knowledge from the CH wine posters astounds me!!).

Is this a wine to pair with food?
Should I decant?
What are the characteristics and what should I expect from this wine (this will be my first Bordeaux, shameless, I know!!)?

Anything else you think I should know or any comments/advice is appreciated!!

Thanks in advance...
