Champagne Vintage 1988

A mild spring was followed by variable weather, and spring frosts did some damage. Hail and millerandange also cut potential crop levels. July was cloudy but conditions rapidly improved and led the way into harvest. Despite all the viticultural challenges along the way, the grapes fared well, and the resulting Champagnes are powerful and well-structured. In the end, this normal-size but late-picked harvest did not reach great ripeness levels (9.2% potential alcohol), but overall the 1988s have been of excellent quality. These slow-maturing, fresh, taut and linear wines are maturing very well and many are still on the rise. Its finest examples include Dom Pérignon Brut and Rosé, Krug Clos du Mesnil and Vintage, Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque, Philipponnat Clos des Goisses, Louis Roederer Cristal and Cristal Rosé, Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, Ruinart Dom Ruinart Rosé, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne and Veuve Clicquot Vintage.
