Chateau Calon Segur St. Estephe 1996 750ml
92 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator
Rated 92 - The 1996 may not be as profound as I had predicted from cask, but it is an exceptional wine. Dark ruby-colored, with a complex nose of dried herbs, Asian spices, and black cherry jam intermixed...

90 Robert Parker
Rated 90 - This is among the finest wines I have ever tasted from this estate. Lavishly oaked, with gobs of pain grille and rich fruit, it is massive and concentrated. The color is dense ruby/purple. The...

Chateau D'yquem Sauternes 1996 375ml
95 Robert Parker
Rated 95 - Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997, Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest, although there is a lot going on. Light gold with a tight but promising nose of roasted hazelnuts...

Chateau Du Tertre Margaux 1996 750ml
90 Robert Parker
Rated 88-90 - A sleeper, Du Tertre's 1996 exhibits a black ruby/purple color, a sweet black fruit-scented nose, medium to full body, well-integrated tannin, and fine purity and depth. This wine should...

Chateau Haut Batailley Pauillac 1996 750ml
91 Robert Parker
Rated 91 - While this may be the most impressive Haut-Batailley I have ever tasted, I am reluctant to go out on a limb and give this wine a higher rating until I can taste it a few more times from both...

90 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator
Rated 90 - Fully mature, with a big, fragrant bouquet of damp earth, weedy underbrush, asphalt, Asian soy, and ripe plums and cherries, this medium-bodied 1996 appears to be on a fast evolutionary track....

Chateau Lafon-Rochet St. Estephe 1996 750ml
90 Robert Parker - 90 Wine Spectator
Rated 90 - One of the sleepers of the 1996 vintage, Lafon-Rochet has turned out an atypically powerful, rich, and concentrated wine bursting with black currant fruit. The opaque purple color gives way...
