Lot #4. Domaine Dujac Bonnes-Mares 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 JG.
"The 1996 Domaine Dujac Bonnes-Mares is a beautiful wine that is now starting to drink with great style, but it is still early on in its long life in bottle and the wine may be even better further down the road. Today, the bouquet is pure and vibrant, offering up a complex blend of cherries, beetroot, woodsmoke, gamebird, a touch of mustard seed, a very complex base of soil tones, cocoa powder and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and beautifully delineated, with a fine core, excellent backend mineral drive, moderate tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. It is hardly a crime to be drinking this beautiful wine today, but it has many, many decades still to go and my gut instinct is that another decade from now will being even more magic in the glass." John Gilman, View From the Cellar #77, Oct 2018
Provenance: The Nantais Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,600
