91 points John Gilman: "The 1996 Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil “Vieilles Vignes” is the first wine I have ever tasted from Domaine Taluau and I was quite impressed. Monsieur Taluau started with a couple of hectares of vines in 1970 and has planted more on his estate as the years have allowed; he was joined full-time at the domaine by his daughter Véronique and her husband, Thierry Foltzenlogel in 1993. The domaine’s ’96 Vieilles Vignes bottling of Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil is deep and complex on the nose, offering up scents of dark berries, cassis, tree ba...

1996 Citran, Haut-Medoc
Top Pick!
Wine Advocate: "Opaque ruby/purple, with plenty of intensity, fruit, body, glycerin, and tannin, the 1996 is a forceful, muscular, broad-shouldered claret. (RP)" (02/1998) Wine Spectator: "An enjoyable wine, without pretension. Berry character, and dried-herb undertone. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pleasant, fruity aftertaste. (JS)" (01/1999)
Price: $39.99

94 points Decanter: "Incredible aromatics, sweet and sour red cherries, raspberries, runny caramel and cola - just wonderful mature Claret aromas. So much power still on the palate, a beautiful rich texture, full and juicy with smooth tannins and excellent layering that goes both vertical and horizontal filling the entire mouth with fruit forwardness alongside hints of coffee, tobacco and eucalyptus. Seductive yet still direct with polished tannins and a sleek overall frame. Refined power on show with a graphite touch at the end bringing you back to text...

The team that also made the delicious '96 Mouton and Clerc Milon made another winner with the '96 d'Armailhac. Robert Parker: "This is a successful and seductive wine. The saturated ruby color is followed by sweet, roasted herb, and black currant aromas with lush toasty oak notes. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Franc, this medium-weight, elegant yet richly fruity wine possesses enough tannin to last two decades, but it will be one 1996 Medoc that will be drinkable at an early age. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018." (04/199...

1996 Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis-en-Medoc (1.5L)
Top Pick!
This unknown property makes super value-old school wines.
Price: $49.99

Wine Advocate: "It possesses a medium dark ruby color, and muted aromatics which, with airing, offer notes of dusty minerals mixed with black cherries and raspberries. Subtle high quality toasty oak makes an appearance along with black raspberry and cherry fruit. This firmly-knit, sinewy, austere, elegant wine displays some positive potential..." (04/1999)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Louis Latour Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru. Accorsing to Burghound's Allen Meadows, Maison Latour has shown a renewed commitment to quality over the last several decases. "What has changed though is the philosophy in the vineyards and Maison Latour, for such a large operation, has a decidedly small domaine mind set which is all to its credit. Though they have not gone completely 'bio, ' I was impressed with the vineyard work and the obvious care that goes into the maintenance, pruning and overall attention to detail. Latour very much appears to be concerned about upgrading the quality of the fruit by promoting the health of the soil and searching for better, lower yielding clonal material and it is this fundamental improvement, ... that has contributed to the real progress in the quality of the reds. To be sure, the reds could be better still but there is a purity and elegance here and frankly it’s nice to see wines that are not hyper-extracted."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 d'Yquem, Sauternes (96WS, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "This leans toward the tropical side, with mango and guava notes out front, while maple, date, blood orange and citrus oil flavors fill in behind. The finish kicks into another gear, taking off with honeysuckle, orange blossom and frangipane accents. Has almost unbridled power today, while maintaining serious cut. A very impressive showing in a rather overlooked vintage. (JM)" (11/2014)
Starting Bid: $645.00

99 points Wine Advocate: "A hot, dry August produced very concentrated grapes in 1996. However, it turned a bit rainy in mid-September through early October, making the vintage less consistent on the Right Bank and in Graves. But as the weather turned glorious from early October on, it was an amazing year for later-harvested Cabernet in the Médoc. There was new ownership at Latour by this time, and a new vat room was completed just prior to the harvest this year. The 1996 Latour is medium to deep garnet in color with a profound earthy, meaty, gamey nose ...

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Krug Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99ST, 99WS, 98JG, 98VN, 97RP, 96DC). Wine & Spirits: "It's hard to imagine how a wine of this power can sustain perfect balance. What is now a more nonchalant intensity in the aroma was, in fact, too much to handle when we tasted this last year, as if the wine had no time for mere humans with their limited sense receptors. If you stop to taste ripe pear, ginger spice, apple blossom and butterscotch the wine leaves you lost in random flavor descriptors as it soars off into a vinous glow that lasts for minutes. This may well be the greatest vintage wine of Henri Krug's career (unless it is challenged by the 2002). It is impossible to predict how long this wine will thrive in bottle, though considering the current fine condition of the 1959 Krug, the first 50 years are a given." (12/2008)
