Dec. 07, 2004: LOUIS JADOT Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques 2002 (93 points, $85)

Pure black cherry and violet aromas and flavors mark this opulent, forward red. It shows class, but also terroir, in a seductive, modern presentation. Mouthcoating, ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 06, 2004: MÉO-CAMUZET Clos de Vougeot 2002 (94 points, $160)

Concentrated black cherry and black currant aromas and flavors mark this rich, full-bodied Pinot, whose purity of fruit is matched by a phalanx of ripe, integrated tannins. The flavor intensity is almost kirschlike. Fine length, but needs time to resolve —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 04, 2004: PHILIPPE DELESVAUX Coteaux du Layon Sélection de Grains Nobles 2002 (99 points, $50/500ml)

The subtle aromas of fig paste and maple syrup belie the intensity of the green tea, blood-orange marmalade, date, dried apricot and honey flavors that are seamlessly intertwined. And when you're ready to take another sip, you realize the incredibly lithe —James Molesworth

Dec. 03, 2004: ALEX GAMBAL Clos Vougeot 2002 (96 points, $150)

Intense and packed with black cherry, mineral and spice elements, matched by a vibrant acidity and dense tannins. The oak is almost completely absorbed by this unevolved monolith, which leaves a sweet fruit and spice aftertaste. Best from 2007 through 202 —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 02, 2004: MARQUÉS DE GRIÑON Syrah Viño de Mesa de Toledo Dominio de Valdepusa 2001 (94 points, $35)

Powerful aromas of anise, game and tar may be too strong for some, but they morph into ripe blackberry, cassis, espresso, black pepper, licorice and mineral flavors on the palate. The texture is plush, the tannins massive but well-integrated, and the frui —Thomas Matthews
