Aug. 25, 2014: ALBERT BICHOT Nuits-St.-Georges White Château Gris Les Terrasses 2011 (92 points, $76)

Terrific cut and focus gives this white a linear profile, showing intensity and length. Lime blossom, acacia flowers, apple and vanilla flavors persist on the long aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2023. 260 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Aug. 23, 2014: DOMAINE GARDIÉS Côtes du Roussillon-Villages La Torre 2011 (93 points, $84)

A ripe and rich red from Southern France that features well-sculpted flavors of dark plum, raspberry and cherry tart that lengthen out pleasantly. Shows plenty of appealing savory details as well, supported by fresh acidity. The powerful, spicy finish provides good cut to the mineral and dark chocolate accents. Best from 2016 through 2021. 1,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Aug. 22, 2014: FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO Irpinia Passito Privilegio 2012 (91 points, $64)

Harmonious and mouthwatering, this lush and creamy dessert wine offers flavors of honeyed apricot, baked peach, almond financier, candied orange zest and white chocolate. The tangy acidity keeps this focused through to the fleur de sel-tinged finish. Drink now through 2024. 667 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Aug. 21, 2014: HENRI DARNAT Puligny-Montrachet Les Champs Gains 2011 (93 points, $85)

Lemon drop, flowers, peach and sweet spice notes converge in this focused white. Stays on the lean side, with a chalky texture and echoes of spice on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. 51 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Aug. 20, 2014: HENRI DARNAT Meursault Clos du Domaine 2011 (91 points, $60)

This starts out rich, featuring flavors of butterscotch, baking spices, apple and lemon. The lively acidity picks up midpalate, driving the lingering finish. Should be well-integrated in a year or so. Best from 2015 through 2022. 370 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
