Sep. 29, 2014: FRÉDÉRIC ESMONIN Gevrey-Chambertin Estournelles St.-Jacques 2011 (92 points, $53)

Firm and linear, with a taut, stony feel underscoring the currant, strawberry and spice flavors. Shows intensity and a long fruit and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2029. 200 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 27, 2014: COS Nero d'Avola Sicilia Contrada 2008 (94 points, $85)

Sep. 26, 2014: DOMAINE VALLET St.-Joseph Méribets 2011 (93 points, $35)

This has a fairly dramatic persona, with bold, pastis-steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit melded with warm ganache, tar and melted licorice snap notes. Lots of smoldering bay leaf and dark olive accents line the finish, which has cut and grip. A small, up-and-coming producer. Drink now through 2020. 1,200 cases made. —James Molesworth

Sep. 25, 2014: DR. H. THANISCH (VDP) Riesling Spätlese Mosel Berncasteler Doctor 2012 (93 points, $76)
