Nov. 22, 2004: MAS IGNEUS Priorat Costers 2001 (94 points, $76)

This is almost too easy to like. Lush blueberry jam and piecrust notes are rich and sweet, enrobed in a plush texture and lingering sweetly on the vanilla-scented finish. It may not satisfy the traditionalists, but the pleasure is hard to deny. Drink now —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 20, 2004: LILBERT FILS Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne NV 2002 (92 points, $40)

Nov. 17, 2004: PAGO DE LOS CAPELLANES Ribera del Duero El Picón 1999 (95 points, $165)

An impressive marriage of power and elegance. This is a big, bold red with ripe plum and blackberry flavors, and the requisite frame of spicy oak, but it also shows floral, mineral and game flavors, multifaceted and alluring. A world-class wine in the ful —Thomas Matthews
