"I suppose the 1996 Clos du Mesnil can’t get any better by my standards. It never fails to leave me speechless. The 1996 is a modern-day 1988 or 1979, which is to say a classic among classics; in fact the 1996 may very well be the greatest Clos du Mesnil period. Smoke, bright fruit, crushed rocks and smoke inform the kaleidoscopic, breathtaking finish." Wine Advocate In the Cellar, Jul 2011
Provenance: The Mont Blanc Cellar
Notes: OWC (1).
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $4,000
