Mar. 02, 2005: BLAIN-GAGNARD Bâtard-Montrachet 2002 (93 points, $130)

A full-bore, forceful white, opulent and packed with peach, floral and butterscotch flavors. More fresh fruit than dried, this is refined, with a long, cleansing finish. A more delicate style. Drink now through 2015. 225 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 01, 2005: ACHÁVAL-FERRER Malbec Mendoza Finca Mirador 2001 (91 points, $85)

Subtle at first, with plum, blackberry and floral notes that gain in intensity through the finish, where more tar, mineral and graphite flavors emerge. Starts slow but has a lot in reserve, with vibrant acidity too. Let this flesh out in the cellar. Drink —James Molesworth

Feb. 28, 2005: CASCINA CUCCO Barolo Vigna Cucco 2000 (91 points, $43)

A solid Barolo with chewy, silky tannins and lots of plum and floral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, medium finish. Needs time. Best after 2008. 500 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 26, 2005: MARCHESI DI GRÉSY Barbaresco Camp Gros Martinenga 2000 (92 points, $90)

Wonderful perfumes of strawberries, berries and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very silky indeed. Layers of tannins, yet very refined. Lovely wine. Best after 2007. 1,150 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 25, 2005: JOH. JOS. PRÜM Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Graacher Himmelreich 2003 (91 points, $35)

Aromatic, this Riesling shows delicacy and balance in its floral, apricot and citrus notes. It's airy and appealing, with a mouthwatering tanginess. Drink now through 2020. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
