99 points James Suckling: "his is so classy and amazing with such composure and finesse. All about fine grain and perfect tone. Sensational from the start. Full body, tight and silky. Will go on forever." (06/2017) 97 points James Halliday: "Medium to full red-purple, still bright after five years, vibrant cherry and plum fruit aromas more than handle the oak on the bouquet; the palate is sumptuous, but not heavy, the cherry and plum flavours tracking the bouquet. The wine has a very long finish, with fine, integrated tannins. Destined to become one of...

1996 Margaux, Margaux (lightly bin-scuffed label)
Top Pick!
100 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Chateau Margaux, a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, must be a strong contender for wine of the vintage. It offers everything you desire from this First Growth. It is blessed with breathtaking delineation and freshness on the nose, understated at first and then blossoming with mineral-infused black fruit, hints of blueberry, crushed stone and violet. The palate is perfectly balanced with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, a wine where everything seems to be in its right ...

90 points Wine Advocate: "I extend my congratulations and accolades to the relatively young new proprietor of Monbousquet, Gerard Perse...he has reduced yields to under 30 hectoliters per hectare, and is doing everything to ensure a natural expression of his vineyards' terroirs...The 1996 Monbousquet is an outstanding effort. The wine is slightly tannic, but it exhibits an exotic nose of kirsch liqueur, cassis, roasted herbs, espresso, and mocha. It possesses excellent texture, impressive depth and richness, and sweet toasty oak. The saturated dark ruby/...

95 points Wine Advocate: "Very impressive, an unquestionably fine dry red. The outstanding, dark purple-colored 1996 Amarone offers a knock-out nose of wood charcoal intermixed with black truffles, melted asphalt, blackberries, and roast beef. Its low acidity and gorgeously ripe fruit provide immediate accessibility. (RP)" (08/2000) K&L Notes: 3 Glasses Gambero Rosso for this spectacular wine. Gambero Rosso is Italy's leading food and wine publication, for which the highest rating--three glasses--is a rare achievement. Aged to perfection, this classic ...

96 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040. (RP)" (12/1999) 93 points Vinous: "Warm-year scents of plum, raspberry liqueur, mocha, hot rocks and gravel struck me as Graves-like. Large...

99 points Wine Advocate: "It is no secret that I adore Chapoutier's luxury cuvee of white Hermitage called Cuvee L'Oree. Made from 90-year old vines and microscopic yields of 10-12 hectoliters per hectare, this wine flirts with perfection. It is a compelling white Hermitage. Made from 100% Marsanne, it is as rich and multidimensional as the fullest, most massive Montrachet money can buy. It is unctuously textured, yet extraordinarily and beautifully balanced. I suspect it will drink well early in life, and then shut down for a few years. It should last f...
Price: $239.99

92 points Wine Advocate: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard reveals a gorgeous nose of sweet cassis fruit, chocolate, iron, and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, and weighty, with moderately high tannin, it requires 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last 25+ years." (01/2000) 90 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Very good deep ruby. Sweet, nutty aromas of chocolate, mocha, mint, graphite and tobacco leaf. Tightly wound but not hard, despite showing flavors of inky licorice and mint. Finishes fairly long, with tongue-coating ...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Few things in wine are as frustrating as experiencing difficulties with a great bottling that you’re long on. That’s been the case for me with the 1996 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cépages, Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year in 1999. With a 95-point rating, 11,000 cases made and a $28 price tag, it was one of the easier picks we’ve made over the years. Since this Sonoma County wine was so delicious and readily available, I bought two cases so I could share the wine experience with friends as often as possible. For the first decade or s...

94 points James Halliday: "Cabernet excels in these parts. The volume is simply turned up: extract and application of tannins – grape and oak – needed to corral the fruit. Yet this sort of Mediterranean expression remains true to varietal personality when executed well. And here it is: cassis, mulch, sage, bayleaf, tapenade and ample oak, positioned as chamois tannins. Brusque, but all high quality. Needs time." (03/2022) Wine Spectator: "Firm, chewy and spicy, with dark cherry, anise and herb flavors on a solid foundation. Has some tannin to lose, but...

93 points Wine Advocate: "This is unquestionably a profound Grand-Puy-Lacoste, but it is excruciatingly backward. It reveals an essence of creme de cassis character which sets it apart from other Pauillacs. The wine is displaying plenty of tannin, huge body, and sweet black currant fruit intermixed with minerals and subtle oak. Massive, extremely structured, and with 25-30 or more years of longevity, this immensely-styled Grand-Puy-Lacoste will require 7-8 years of patience, perhaps longer. A superb, classic Pauillac. (RP)" (04/1999) 92 points Wine Spe...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (95RP, 94JG, 93WS, 92ST, 91JS). Wine Advocate: "While in some vintages La Mission Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion can be close in quality, that is not the case in this vintage. The 1996 Haut-Brion, a blend of 50% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc is clearly on a higher plane than the La Mission. There is something much more expansive and complete on the nose: greater depth of fruit, more harmonious with scents of underbrush, tar, black olive and this bottle perhaps less "feral" than I have noticed on previous examples. The palate is very well balanced with dark cherries, sous-bois and cedar. This is one vintage where I think the Cabernet Franc plays an important role and lends more complexity. This is a 1996 that has retained and built upon beguiling fleshiness and it will continue to evolve with style and panache. (NM)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $1,125.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 94WS, 93ST). Wine Advocate: "The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine. (RP)" (12/1999)
Current Bid: $175.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (97DC, 94RP, 92ST). Decanter: "One of the best vintages of the vertical, the fruit feels well defined and bright, the fleshy berry expression is certainly Californian, with notes of coffee bean and smoke, but it is measured and balanced, and comes through as a depth of flavor that is pretty irresistable. One to sink into. 3% Malbec completes the blend. 37 days skin contact, low crop, sunny and warm summer. (JA)" (09/2019)
Current Bid: $750.00

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 Moët & Chandon "Dom Pérignon Oenothèque" Brut Champagne (100JS, 99WE, 98DC, 97BH, 97JG, 97VN, 96ST, 96W&S). James Suckling: "This shows amazing freshness and depth of fruit while remaining agile and very clean. Full body, dense and layered on the palate. Goes on for minutes with each sip. Lots of mineral and chalk character too. A fabulous Champagne." (07/2013)
Current Bid: $500.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 1996 Palmer, Margaux (OWC - 94VN, 91RP, 90WS) in original wood. Vinous: "No tasting note given." (07/2009)
