Bonnes Mares Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1996

One of my all-time favorite #Burgundian sites, this #1996 Bonnes-Mares is showing beautifully now. Mugnier's wines can be very delicate and elegant even in years such as '96 when many others produced big blockbusters...not so here. This is very attractive and will continue to make you happy for another decade! #Mugnier #BonnesMares #GrandCru — 4 years ago

Madrona Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

#1996 vintage .
Glorious. Intense, silky, velvety, sexy. Chateau Latour style here, muscular and tight. Absolutely loved every bit of it. The final is epic! This wine just does not fade away! It builds on the palate forever. Beautiful

Vieille Vigne Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir

#1996 was flying. Thousand-spice potpourri, tension for days and 10+ ahead. #Échézeaux — 4 years ago

Aux Combottes Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1996

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

The fruit has not survived long enough to see the rough tannins and sharp acidity of #1996 give way and soften. #gevreychambertin #josephdrouhin #1ercru #burgundy — 4 years ago

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

What a treat. This wine is tasting spectacular right now. Dried herbal notes, cigar box, faint fruitcake notes, cedar, teakwood, cassis, plums, forest floor. Elegant and lean with a bright, red-fruit driven finish. #leovillebarton #1996 #bordeaux #stjulien — 5 years ago
