Sep. 17, 2005 DOMAINE COULANGE Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2003
89 points, $25
Thick and powerful, with a wall of cocoa and toast hiding the core of black cherry and black currant fruit. Rich, muscular finish is pounded home by tannins, but this has the stuffing to offset it. Just needs a little time. Grenache, Syrah and Carignane. —James Molesworth
Sep. 16, 2005
CHÂTEAU DE COULAINE Chinon Bonnaventure 2003
89 points, $18
Juicy, with dark cherry, briar, olive paste and iron notes. Smoky finish, with fresh acidity. Shows the ripeness of the vintage, but stays true to type. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth
Sep. 15, 2005
89 points, $15
Firm, rich mouthfilling red from southwest France. A touch of elegance as well, with intense currant, dark plum and cassis flavors. Crisp finish of spiced meat. Drink now through 2008. 8,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Sep. 14, 2005
COULY-DUTHEIL Chinon Clos de l'Echo 2000
88 points, $29
Mature, with alluring tar, iron, olive and plum sauce aromas and flavors, all stitched together by nervy mineral notes and still-fresh acidity. Drink now through 2006. 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Sep. 13, 2005
VALENTÍN BIANCHI Malbec San Rafael Famiglia 2003
88 points, $18
Fleshy, fruit-driven version, with creamy layers of blackberry, fig and plum. Plenty of toast and cocoa here too, lending a slightly firm feel to the finish, but still lots of fruit. Drink now through 2007. 8,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
