May. 24, 2005: CAVE DES PRODUCTEURS LA VALLÉE COQUETTE Vouvray Réserve des Producteurs 2002 (89 points, $30)

Juicy, ripe quince, fig and pear flavors are supported by fresh, mouthwatering acidity. Off-dry in feel, with nice length. The fruit has an encore on the finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2006. 500 cases made. —James Molesworth

May. 23, 2005: VIÑEDOS DE ITHACA Priorat White Odysseus GB 2003 (90 points, $25)

Big, bold and rich, with pear, melon and honeysuckle flavors. Notes of orange and honey give it a hint of sweetness, yet there's firm acidity--even tannin--to keep it structured and balanced. Garnacha Blanca. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

May. 21, 2005: DOMINGOS ALVES DE SOUSA Touriga Nacional Douro Quinta do Vale da Raposa 2003 (89 points, $20)

Firm, fresh and fruity, with red plum, raspberry and licorice and shadings of mineral and smoke. Medium- to full-bodied but not overpowering, with a peppery finish. A delicious expression of Touriga. Drink now through 2007. 900 cases made. —Kim Marcus

May. 20, 2005: VIÑA MEIN Ribeiro 2003 (90 points, $19)

Alluring aromas of minerals, wild herbs and the sea give way to crisp, focused flavors of citrus, mineral and fresh herbs in this intense, distinctive white. Not a blockbuster, but a delicious food wine. Treixadura, Godello and others. Drink now. 3,000 ca —Thomas Matthews

May. 19, 2005: CORTES DE CÍMA Touriga Nacional Alentejo 2002 (91 points, $20)

Decadent and powerful, with a meaty, gamy aroma backed by deep plum and dark cherry flavors. Mocha and roasted notes fill the long finish, with plenty of licorice. Reminiscent of a Châteauneuf. Drink now. 12,062 cases made. —Kim Marcus
