daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Mar. 15, 2006: CHÂTEAU LE CROCK St.-Estèphe 2003 (89 points, $19)

Beautiful mineral, berry, cherry and currants on the nose with just a hint of spice. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. Slightly austere now but should come around nicely. Best after 2010. —James Suckling

Mar. 14, 2006: CHÂTEAU FILHOT Sauternes 2003 (89 points, $30)

Aromas of apples, peaches and honey follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of sweetness and a long aftertaste of dried pineapple and creamy vanilla. This is much better than from barrel and better than the 2001. Best after 2009. 5,000 cases mad —James Suckling

Mar. 13, 2006: VON HÖVEL Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Oberemmeler Hütte 2004 (89 points, $27)

Ripe and juicy, this white offers apricot, beeswax and orange notes, with a hint of cream on the finish. It's balanced and lively, with a citrus-tinged finish. Best from 2007 through 2018. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 11, 2006: CHÂTEAU GLORIA St.-Julien 2003 (89 points, $29)

Aromas and flavors of berry, currant and toasted oak follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Blowsy. Best after 2009. 20,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Mar. 10, 2006: ALFRED MERKELBACH Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Ürziger Würzgarten (AP 19) 2004 (89 points, $23)

Racy and piquant, with green apple cut slicing through the richness and keeping the lime, apple and slate notes at the forefront. It's balanced, but needs time to integrate. Best from 2007 through 2018. 110 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
