DAUMEN PÈRE & FILS Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de la Vieille Julienne 2004
93 points, $55
A great core of fig, blackberry and black currant fruit, with racy acidity and fine-grained tannins that are the hallmark of 2004, this shows flashes of graphite, spice and mineral on the long, precise finish. Big step up from the 2003. Best from 2007 thr —James Molesworth

AUBERT Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast UV Vineyard 2004
94 points, $80
Wonderful richness and range of flavor, exhibiting spicy anise, black cherry, blackberry, cherry rhubarb and subtle earth and nutmeg scents. Glides on the finish, returning to the fruit and light oak themes. Drink now through 2010. 220 cases made. —James Laube

CLOS DES PAPES Châteauneuf-du-Pape White 2005
94 points, $61
Terrific purity and precision. Like a young Meursault, with acacia flower, blanched almond and honey notes pushed by a tangy, driven, minerally finish. Should age well. Drink now through 2016. 1,025 cases made. —James Molesworth

DOMAINE DE LA JANASSE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chaupin 2004
93 points, $60

DOMAINE DE MARCOUX Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2004
94 points, $165
Very round and supple up front, with raspberry and fig fruit caressed by silky tannins. Long finish shows kirsch, mineral, graphite and dark chocolate hints. Really stretches out, with the structure becoming more evident as it tightens up in the glass. Ne —James Molesworth
