E. GUIGAL Condrieu La Doriane 2005
93 points, $90
Concentrated, with focused almond, acacia, mango and dried pineapple flavors. Nice cut to the finish, with lingering anise notes that really open up in the glass. Great mouthfeel. Drink now through 2008. 1,500 cases made. —James Molesworth

VEUVE CLICQUOT Brut Champagne La Grande Dame 1996
93 points, $160
A touch cheesy in aroma, this settles into apple, peach and hazelnut flavors. On the sharp side, with a grainy texture that emerges on the finish. A powerful, dry Champagne, with a biscuitlike aftertaste. Needs food. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 29, 2006
CONCHA Y TORO Carmenère Peumo Carmín de Peumo 2003
92 points, $74
Gorgeous nose of plum sauce, cocoa and aged tobacco, with a rich, fleshy palate of currant, cherry and blackberry fruit layered with loam and tobacco notes. Rock solid finish. An impressive debut. Carmenère with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Caber —James Molesworth
Nov. 28, 2006
MOËT & CHANDON Brut Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon 1998
91 points, $140
Exuding honey, vanilla and light coffee notes, this creamy Champagne straddles youth and maturity. Well-balanced, fine and vibrant. The coffee and vanilla notes will develop with age. Drink now through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 27, 2006
J. & F. LURTON Toro El Albar Excelencia 2003
90 points, $40
Jammy cherry and charry toast flavors are assertive yet a bit overdone in this rich red. The tannins also seem overmuscled. Impressive concentration, but lacks the balance for greatness. May harmonize with time. Best after 2008. 5,500 cases made. —Thomas Matthews
