TAITTINGER Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Comtes de Champagne 1996
93 points, $140
There's richness to offset the vibrant structure of this 1996. Shows toast, candied berry, lemon zest and mineral flavors. Balanced, ending with a chalky sensation around the gums. Still very youthful, with a long life ahead. Drink now through 2018. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 09, 2006
DEUTZ Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2002
92 points, $94
Rich, with a dense texture, evoking whole-grain toast, honey and mineral aromas and flavors. Has good grip, with a crisp structure and a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2012. 450 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 08, 2006
HEIDSIECK MONOPOLE Brut Champagne Diamant Blanc NV 2005
91 points, $100
There's a hint of mushroom and burnished wood in this vigorous Champagne. Like a barrel-fermented white Burgundy, with a sharpness and complexity that begs for food and contemplation. Long, appley aftertaste. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 07, 2006
E. GUIGAL Condrieu 2004
91 points, $50
Concentrated, almost muscular, but stays bright, with lots of almond, anise, peach and mineral flavors that pump through the finish. Drink now through 2007. 12,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
Dec. 06, 2006
DOMAINE CARNEROS Le Rêve Carneros 2000
92 points, $65
A ripe Chardonnay, with complex aromas of dough, vanilla, spice and hazelnut that turn rich and creamy on the palate, offering a mix of concentrated flavors with a measure of delicacy and finesse. Drink now through 2011. 4,000 cases made. —James Laube
