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 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 ...

91 points Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 La Conseillante has always been a good performer in what is a Left Bank vintage. Although there is noticeable bricking on the rim, there is plenty of freshness on the nose, quite floral with crushed strawberry, cranberry leaf and a touch of tomato vine, which after ten minutes turns into black truffle (typical trait in Pomerol). There is good vigor here for a 20-year-old Pomerol. The palate is medium-bodied and here you could argue that it is more advanced than the aromatics. Yes, there is good we...

99 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Latour is medium to deep garnet in color with a profound earthy, meaty, gamey nose with hints of blueberry preserves, crème de cassis and pencil shavings. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and packed with muscular fruit, with a firm, ripe, grainy backbone and epically long finish. Showing much more youthfully than the 2000 tasted on the same day and still possessing bags of youthful fruit in the mid-palate, this beauty is going to go on and on! (LPB)" (02/2019) 98 points Decanter: "Inky black even at 25 years ol...

93 points Vinous: "Cedar, scorched earth and mint blossomed on a nose that is firmly into its secondary phase, yet laden with more fruit than expected considering both its age and the austere style of Left Bank 1996s. The palate might be nearing the end of its drinking plateau, so don’t hold back if you own a few bottles. But I admired its balance and density, its structure and classicism, and the typical Pauillac traits of cedar and a touch of mint toward the finish. I savored it down to the last drop. (NM)" (09/2020) 92 points Wine Advocate: "I was s...

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.

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Leognan (90RP). Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. With a dark ruby/purple color, it displays a beautiful presentation of blackberry and cassis fruit nicely dosed with subtle new oak. On the attack, the wine is sweet and pure, with striking symmetry, and a compellingly balanced mid-palate and finish. Although not as big as some blockbusters from this vintage, it is extremely complex (both aromatically and flavor-wise), and impressive for its restraint, subtlety, and impeccable balance. (RP)" (04/1999)

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 1996 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (92RP). Wine Advocate: "Not having encountered this vintage for ten years, I was pleasantly surprised by the good showing of this Saint Emilion. It has a masculine nose with blackberry, dark plum and those black truffles that mutate into undergrowth aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry, a hint of sea-salt at the back of the mouth, nicely structured with a touch of bay leaf on the convincing finish. Drinking perfectly now. (NM)" (07/2011)

90 points Wine Advocate: "As I suspected, the 1996 Lafleur is a painfully backward, austere wine that represents a modern day clone of this estate's 1966. It possesses a backward, tannic, Medoc-like character, with none of Pomerol's hallmark generosity. The wine exhibits a saturated dark purple color, as well as a distinctive mineral, black raspberry, and berry-scented nose with the steely, mineral Lafleur character well-displayed. Powerful, long, and rich, but excruciatingly tannic, this wine may or may not resolve all of its tannin. In short, it is an ...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (95DC, 92JG, 92WS, 91VN, 90ST). Decanter: "Deep plum in colour, holding its Pauillac character perfectly at 25 years old, opening up to show cedar, pencil shavings, tobacco, graphite, cassis and touches of raspberry purée. This is very much in the drinking window, with waves of camphor, charcoal, woodsmoke and tobacco adding complexity and interest. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. (JA)" (01/2021)
Current Bid: $465.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Henriot "Cuvée des Enchanteleurs" Brut Champagne (97DC, 97WE, 97WS, 95JG, 94ST, 92RP, 90W&S). Wine Enthusiast: "With all the extreme intensity of this vintage, this wine brings even more. The start of cookie yeast and toast character, a vibrant mineral texture, hints of spice, green herbs and a final white peach flavor. It is still young, just keep aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2010)
Current Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 7-bottle lot of 1996 Talbot, St-Julien (93DC, 91WS, 90VN). Decanter: "At this stage the colour is firmly in the rich claret zone - ruby red, not overly intense but full of life. The wine is very enjoyable and has that lovely St-Julien signature of rich black fruits floating over a bed of air, as the acidity in the Cabernet takes flight. This gives it a sense of poise and confidence, and again the signature mouthwatering finish. It's not going for intensity and punch, but for complexity and elegance without sacrificing fruit - there are dark, spicy notes in here. It sits with you, dealing out slowly but surely the idea of balance. (JA)" (12/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Bollinger R.D. Extra Brut Champagne (97JS, 97WE, 96RP, 96VN, 95DC, 94W&S, 94WS). Wine Enthusiast: "The Bollinger R.D. (recently disgorged) is Bollinger's answer to a prestige cuvée. Keeping the wine long on its lees (this was disgorged in June 2006) yields a wine that is very much in the rich Bollinger style. This is a beautifully balanced wine, with acidity, intensity and structure in perfect harmony. It is still so young, and certainly could age for years. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (11/2006)
Current Bid: $270.00

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 1996 Tourelles De Longueville, Pauillac. The fantastic second wine of Pichon-Baron. Delicious concentrated fruit with toasty new oak that's well-integrated. Chocolate and herbal notes along with sweet fruit make this the perfect wine for Cabernet lovers that want to introduce themselves to delicious Bordeaux without breaking the bank.
Current Bid: $240.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Heidsieck Monopole Diamant Bleu (94WS). Wine Spectator: "Wonderful ripe aromas of butterscotch, peach, lemon and malt turn deeper, spicier and smokier on the palate. It's all focused by vibrant acidity that interplay with the creamy texture. This tastes ready, but should develop over the next decade. Long, nutty aftertaste. (BS)" (07/2006)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Domaine Bertagna Clos St. Denis Grand Cru (1.5L) (91WS). Wine Spectator: "Sensational '96--deep, rich and ripe, a wine that plumbs the depths of terroir, fruit, oak. Full-bodied yet very elegant, this has wonderful balance, sweet-tasting red berry flavors and a spicy, wet earth-tasting finish." (02/1999)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Domaine du Chateau de Meursault Beaune 1er Cru "Grèves" (1.5L). A rare, well-aged magnum! Decanter describes bottles from the mild 1996 vintage as "Pure, elegant wines with the ability to age, " and this lives up to the billing.
Current Bid: $92.00

Bid on this 3-magnum lot of 1996 Domaine J.F. Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny (1.5L). Vinous: Deep cherry-red. Very fresh, pure fruit aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cassis, with a briary, chocolatey ripeness. Juicy and tightly wound, with strong but harmonious acidity. Vibrant, pure and very long. (ST) (03/1998)
Starting Bid: $870.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 La Conseillante, Pomerol (91RP, 91VN). Vinous: "The 1996 La Conseillante has been an inconsistent performer over the years. Here it has a mature nose, less complex than the 1995 and with dark fruit, notes of forest floor and stewed black tea, a little herbaceous but nicely defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that exert a gentle grip. It feels fully mature with clove and cedar infusing the dark berry fruit, segueing into a finish with Vervain tea, truffle and spice. There is some dryness creeping in and so I would broach bottles over the next five or six years. Tasted at La Conseillante vertical at the property. Drinking window: 2018-2030 (NM)" (05/2018)
Starting Bid: $720.00

Bid on this 9-bottle lot of 1996 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien (91ST, 91VN, 90WS). Vinous: "Dark ruby. Deep, brooding nose hints at dark plum, blackcurrant, coffee and lavender accented by cinnamon and nutmeg. Enters bright and fresh, then turns richer in the middle, with accessible plum, herb and coffee flavors persisting nicely on the peppery finish, which features chewy tannins. This is at once more herbal and more forward than the 1995. It's also better than I remember it, and although still quite young it offers plenty of appeal. The wine's harmonious acidity makes it seem lighter-bodied than it is. About 40% of the malolactic fermentation was carried out in barriques, compared to a normal one-third. Note that the label states 12.5% alcohol, but the data given to me by the estate shows 13% alcohol. (ID) 91+" (04/2013)
Starting Bid: $630.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Canon, St-Emilion. Wine Spectator: "Some good berry and tobacco character but slightly herbal. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins, but a diluted center-palate. Rather light for Canon." (01/1999)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (97DC, 90JD, 90RP, 90VN, 90WS). Decanter: "23 years old and yet one of the best wines in the vertical, this has real power and grip, still with a tannic buildup through the palate that's packed full of the Left Bank signatures: menthol, cassis, dark brambled fruits, cedar, cold ash and liquorice. It has great freshness on the nose, and it's still so young and full of beauty. Easily one of the most exciting wines here. (JA)" (04/2019)
