Aug. 10, 2005: DOMAINE PÉLAQUIÉ Côtes du Rhône-Villages Laudun 2003 (90 points, $15)

Nice purity, with supple black cherry and plum fruit riding atop lavender, spice and mineral notes, all of it staying in balance through the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2006. 800 cases made. —James Molesworth

Aug. 09, 2005: MEERLUST Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2003 (90 points, $19)

This has alluring mineral, dried pineapple, fig, pie crust and matchstick flavors, with a long, detailed, smoky finish. Delicious, character-filled wine. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth

Aug. 08, 2005: JEAN-LUC COLOMBO Côtes du Rhône-Villages Cairanne Le Pavillon des Courtisanes 2001 (90 points, $20)

Elegant spice and vanilla notes frame the nose, while supple red and black cherry fruit mingles with mineral and sanguine notes. Tangy, almost nervy minerality runs through the finish, along with some toast. Very stylish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Aug. 06, 2005: PERRIN & FILS Vacqueyras Les Christins 2003 (91 points, $19)

A gorgeous nose of dark fruit confiture and spice cake flavors is followed by a powerful palate of dark fruit, smoke, tar and minerals. Richly layered and densely structured, but with an elegant side as well. Best from 2006 through 2009. 300 cases importe —James Molesworth

Aug. 05, 2005: CHÂTEAU BELLES EAUX Coteaux du Languedoc Sainte Hélène 2003 (90 points, $30)

Boisterous, with rich, luscious flavors of cherry, hot spice and marzipan. This has an exotic cast, with an extended finish filled with chocolate mousse and orange peel. A baby. Best from 2006 through 2010. 500 cases imported. —Kim Marcus
