The 1996 Chateau Marbuzet has a dark ruby colour. Iron, game and deep red fruits fill the nose with exciting aromas. Plump, seductive flavors cover the palate with a hit of '96 acidity on the finish keeping everything balanced and in proper order. A bit of lavender makes its way into things after being exposed to air for 60 minutes.

This 1996 red wine from the famous Pomerol region in France is a traditionally styled wine. Earthy and undergrowth/briar aromas intermingle with leather, black cherry and tobacco. Great balance, it is nearly full resolved though there is still some restrained savoury fruit and lightly grippy tannins present.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
This estate has been rejuvenated thanks to the inspired leadership of Gerard Perse and it has never produced better wines. The 1996 has quantities of redcurrant fruit in the nose, along with earth and spice. This is a pleasant wine that is in its prime now and so will gain no benefit from additional cellaring.

St Estephe, Cru Grand Bourgeois Exceptional
This well-made Cru Bourgeois exhibits a dark ruby color, and a round, attractive nose of black currants, raspberries, and earth. Medium-bodied, with sweet tannin and good purity.

87 Points - Wine Journal.
Neil Martin writes of this wine... "Showing fabulously at the turn of the millennium where it displayed great depth and concentration. A more muted response when last tasted blind at Farr's horizontal. Much fresher on the nose with good fruit concentration. Blackberry, cedar, burnt toast, quite complex and well-defined. The palate is quite sweet with bitter cherry, raspberry and strawberry. Moderate tannins with a fleshy finish. Not bad at all. Tasted September 2006." Neil Martin Wine Journal

** Robert Parker 98 Points **
"The brilliant 1996 Dom Perignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer." Parker, Wine Advocate 2005

*** 92 Points Mark Squires - Wine Advocate ***
Scoring an outstanding 92 Points Oscar and Claudia Quevedo have produced a gem of a 1996 Colhieta. The nose offers secondary nuances including caramel apple, maple, toffee, and pralines. On the palate it delivers lots of subtlety, is blessed with plenty of acidity and the finish is long and infused with nuts and caramelised flavours.
"The 1996 Colheita Port is a tawny bottled in 2013 with 114 grams per liter of residual sugar. Mostly a blend of the big three (Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz), this has 114 grams per liter of residual sugar.
