Feb. 05, 2015: RUINART Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Dom Ruinart 2004 (95 points, $130)

Showing an impressive backbone of acidity, this is dense and powerful, yet harmonious overall. The fine, creamy mousse swathes the statuesque frame in a silky texture, with honeysuckle, graphite and hazelnut notes lending fragrant accents to the rich palate of baked white peach, toasted brioche, lemon confit and smoke. Drink now through 2030. 460 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Feb. 04, 2015: THIBAULT LIGER-BELAIR Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges 2011 (92 points, $131)

A broad style, with cherry, berry, toast and sandalwood flavors hanging on the light-grained tannins. Shows moderate power and fine intensity, offering a lingering finish of sandalwood and licorice. Best from 2016 through 2026. 132 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 03, 2015: STARK-CONDÉ Cabernet Sauvignon Jonkershoek Three Pines 2012 (92 points, $42)

Rock-solid, with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit, melded with charcoal and warm tobacco leaf notes, all sheathed in loamy tannins through the finish. Buried acidity will help this cellar until the grip softens. Best from 2016 through 2020. 250 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Feb. 02, 2015: MASTROBERARDINO Taurasi Radici Riserva 2007 (94 points, $75)

A lovely, harmonious red, layering supple tannins and a pure beam of sweet black cherry fruit with rich, loamy earth, mocha, melted licorice, leather and smoky grilled beef flavors. Well-structured but accessible, showing balance and grace, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2030. 1,250 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Jan. 31, 2015: VIGNOBLE DE CHÂTEAU-GRILLET Château-Grillet 2012 (93 points, $165)

Offers a creamy, rounded feel, with anise, verbena and green melon flavors gliding along, lined with a bright mineral note. The finish picks up hints of green almond and honeysuckle for added range and length, while the minerality continues to echo. Drink now through 2019. 300 cases made. —James Molesworth
