92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good dark ruby; slightly hazy. Sappy aromas of black cherry, currant, espresso and earth. Silky and stuffed with fruit. Acidity (from the substantial Petit Verdot component?) is still a bit pronounced, but this wine has the sheer extract to harmonize with bottle aging. Quite powerfully structured and very long on the aftertaste, though not as subtle as the regular '96. (ST)" (06/1999)

90 points Robert Parker's 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. Anticipa...

1996 Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St-Jacques"
Back In Stock!
94 points John Gilman: "I have always ascribed to the theory that Clos St. Jacques can deliver grand cru quality complexity, but does not quite have the same mid-palate volume as the top grand crus in the village. This was quite apparent in our 1996 tastings, as almost everything served before or after this wine was a grand cru and the differences were self-evident. That said, this is a very, very pretty and stylish wine, wafting from the glass in a classy aromatic constellation of black cherries, red plums, mustard seed, a complex base of soil, gamebird...

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, saturated ruby. Perfumed, superripe aromas of crystallized dark berries, roasted coffee and shoe polish. Subtle and extremely youthful, yet the inner-mouth aromatics and sweetness of fruit are already compelling. Very intensely flavored and solidly structured. Superb finishing fruit is more than a match for the wine firm but ripe tannins. Offers great potential. (ST)" (06/1998)

98 points Decanter: "This has to be one of the wines of the vintage. More deft and cedary than the bigger boned 1986 vintage (also tasted), this is light delicate and elegant. Again, ink and spice on the nose, with stunning cedar and blackcurrant fruit with a touch of undergrowth, graphite and cigar box. Beautifully fresh with sublime melting tannins. (JS)" (11/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Cos d'Estournel was aged in 65% new oak (unlike the 1995 which was 100%) and is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon ...

Jason Wilson writes: "Situated 180 meters above sea level, Château de Pellehaut has been a working farm for nearly 400 years. Today, the château’s 530 hectares are run by brothers Martin and Mathieu Béraut. The brothers grow vines on about 300 hectares of the property, most of it for wine production but enough Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche for Armagnac. In fact, Pellehaut is one of only two estates in Ténarèze that grow Folle Blanche. My first introduction to Pellehaut was through a lovely bright and floral 10-year-old bottling of 100% Folle Blanche about...

The wonderful historic bottler Duncan Taylor has been on the right side of so many incredible bottlings thanks to some smart moves by its owner Euan Shand. One place where Euan has been able to stay ahead of the curve is the in purchase of high quality teaspooned malt. These are whiskies distilled at blue chip distillers that are effectively declassified to prevent blenders and bottlers from profiting on the good names of those distillers. Fortunately for us, those agreements do nothing to prevent us from illustrating clearly the source of these casks. T...

Whisky Advocate: "Lush, soft summer fruits bathe the nose with green melon, kiwi, green apple, tart gooseberry, ladyfingers, and a not unpleasant plastic note, like toy building blocks or the glove compartment of a new car. Baked orange delivers sharp tart flavors, with allspice, barley sugar, and hard candies, later developing apple notes and settling into a creamy, fruity finish.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is a majesty, richness, and breadth to 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon 30th Anniversary Reserve. This special bottling (about 1,000 cases) is a fabulous wine. From its opaque purple color and stunning aromatics of blackberries, cassis, pain grille, licorice, and Asian spices, to its full-bodied, concentrated, superbly-extracted style, this wine possesses virtually everything. Layers of fruit, glycerin, extract, and sweet tannin are presented in a flamboyant format. The tannin level is high, but so is the wine's ric...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Chateauneuf du Pape is among the vintage's more seductive wines. Deep and fruity, with gorgeous levels of glycerin, raspberry, and kirsch flavors, it is an up-front, hedonistic wine with surprisingly low acidity, and a succulent, fleshy style. (RP)" (10/1997) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Perfumed, tangy aromas of raspberry, cherry, leather and oak spice; distinctly Burgundian in style. Juicy, spicy and fresh, with good intensity and delineation and a sappy sweetness. No shortage of te...

93 points John Gilman: "I was not travelling to Bordeaux back when the 1996s were first displayed, and my primary business at this time in the wine trade was not young claret, so I do not have anywhere near as much tasting experience with the young ‘96s as I do with the 1995 vintage. Consequently, I am always happy to cross paths with wines from this year, which is clearly very, very strong on the Left Bank. The 1996 Cantemerle is outstanding, offering up a deep and very vibrant bouquet of cassis, dark berries, cigar ash, gravelly soil tones, incipient n...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The color is a dense ruby/black/purple. Reluctant aromas of blueberries, blackberries, minerals, flowers, truffles, and subtle new oak eventually emerge. Elegant on the attack, with sweet ripeness, and a delicate, concentrated richness, the hallmark of this wine is subtlety rather than flamboyance. A sweet mid-palate sets it apart from many of the uninspiring Ausones of the eighties and seventies. The wine is stylish, and presently understated, with tremendous aging potential.

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This medium-to-dark ruby-colored wine was outstanding. Profound aromas of deeply ripe red cherries, blueberries, and blackberries steeped in hoisin sauce are followed by a medium-to-full-bodied, beautifully ripened, and silky-textured core of black fruits, beef blood, porcini mushrooms, and hints of earth. This wine's outstanding finish reveals loads of supple tannins complemented by blackberry flavors...

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Exhibiting a medium-to-dark ruby color and lovely floral aromas of cherries, cassis, leather, and blackberries, this wine has excellent intensity and concentration of black fruits as well as earthy, and stony flavors. This medium-to-full-bodied, harmonious, introverted (particularly after the previous offering), and oily-textured wine also possesses a long and firm finish. (PR)" (08/1998) K&L Notes: Perfumed aromas of cranberries and mocha, with a sweet, fleshy mid-palate and good length.

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Sexy, seductive, spicy and elegant. In short, this is everything a great Romanée St. Vivant should be with captivating complexity and endlessly fascinating flavor nuances culminating in a finish that seemingly lasts forever. I could taste this the next day, it was that compelling. As one would expect, this is still in its infancy and while there is plenty of mid-palate extract, this finishes with a wallop of tannins that will require every bit of a decade to resolve plus a touch of wood spice. Terrific." (04/2005)

Born into a winemaking family in Anjou, Pithon’s career as a vintner began in 1978 when he established his domaine. Pithon has significantly contributed to the recognition of the dry white wines of the Loire Valley as well as the lesser-known Anjou appellation by producing high-quality dry Chenin Blanc from the area, which was known chiefly for sweet wines. He also promoted organic farming, indigenous yeast strains and refraining from chaptalization or acidification, as well as the Burgundian approach of single-plot selections and barrel aging.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (from 10-year old vines) may only have a "modest" 13.9% alcohol, yet it is a sensational wine. Its opaque saturated purple color is followed by copious amounts of cassis, earth, and spice aromas. There is superb concentration, huge body, outstanding purity, and a multi-dimensional, thick, viscous, concentrated finish. It is a blockbuster Cabernet Sauvignon that will be drinkable young because of low acidity, but will evolve for two decades. (RP)" (04/1999)

Jancis Robinson: "Mainly from young vines and the north-facing plots across the main road from the Château. Dark ruby with some age. Aristocratic fragrance. Lovely build with real freshness and fruit concentration. Far too good for the prices charged then for Carruades! Really subtle and Lafite-like. Racy. This is a really lovely wine for current drinking. Anyone who bought it en primeur should feel so proud of themselves. 17.5/20 points (JR)" (09/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very intense, expressive nose of blackberry, espresso and an anima...

Clos Frantin is now making unfiltered wines. This Echezeaux is rich with a nice fruity character. Classic Echezeaux . Nice cherries well balanced, with quite a bit of potential. The new system of no filtering is having a dramatic impact. Additionally, their cellars have recently moved and they're now producing wines in a larger cellar allowing them to have more room to work. It's safe to say that Clos Frantin is really turning things around. The younger generation has become more involved and asserting their desire to further the development of the ...

Catherine is a thick, unctuous, amazingly sweet and creamy full-bodied wine. Layers of almond extract, fresh red currants and sweetened herbal tea are found in its lively and tightly wound personality. Superbly balanced and admirably long, this harmonious wine has the ability to age for over 20 years in an adequate cellar. Drink it between 1999-2025. (PR)" (10/1997)

'Spicy, floral and perfumed Cabernet, a late-release from the '96 vintage, showing off earthy, cedary black cherry and blackberry flavors, and pretty, toast- and vanilla-scented notes.

The 1996 Against The Wall Syrah is cut from the same mold as the 1997. The color is opaque black/purple, and the nose offers a combination of cassis/blackberry jamminess intermixed with tar, pepper, and spice. Thick, massively full, yet wonderfully rich and expansive, with admirable purity and mouth-staining levels of glycerin and extract, this full-bodied, silky...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential, but it appears a decade's worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing, the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals, sweet oak, and spice. A full-bodied wine, it possesses layered, concentrated, sweet fruit, with an elevated level of ripe tannin. (RP)" (04/1999) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wi...

1996 Ben Nevis 23 Year Old "Single Malts Of Scotland" Single Sherry Butt #1479 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Distilled in 1996, this Highland single malt was aged in a sherry butt that yielded 405 bottles in total. With all the full-bodied character and complex flavour notes you'd expect from a well-aged Ben Nevis, this is a dram to savour slowly. Bottled exclusively for the USA.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Domaine de Chevalier certainly surpassed my expectations even though I would caution that I think Olivier Bernard has made better vintages since then. Deep in color, the nose is quite captivating with black fruit, brine and crushed stone. I like the strictness here -- very 1996 in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a svelte texture. The bead of acidity lends this tension although I found that finish surprisingly backward and just lacked that peacock's tail that would hav...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, minerals, black pepper, tobacco and leather; not for the brett-averse. Very rich, supple and layered; cleaner in the mouth than on the nose. Has the texture and restrained sweetness of a Bordeaux." (06/1999)

One of the most expressive, complete 1996s today, the Winston Churchill is in a great spot. Butter, spice, almond and lemon oil notes meld together effortlessly in the glass.
