So you decant and rebottle or simple let breath in the bottle.
I guess decanting allows you to clear the sediment.

I decant to clear the sediment. A couple positives of this
Is 1) get to take responsibility for the cork opening if it’s an older wine, and 2) smell the bouquet in the very unlikely event a wine is corked. Once I took an Haut Brion to one of my favourite restaurants and did not pre-decant. It was corked. Of cours...
Stellar wines from a very good vintage!
Good spread across the Bordeaux range, variation. The Monbousquet would be interesting,and the Dom would be well into it's drinking maturity. Enjoy the occasion with these wines!
Time to drink! had it two years ago--still keeping well with some coffee/toffee notes on the bouquet Should be interesting ...
Great wine ...
I was just looking back at 96.... Great year for films as well, Jerry Maguire was released and the Dallas Cowboys won the NFL.
