AVIGNONESI Cortona Desiderio 2003
92 points, $50
A fruit bomb, with loads of coffee and intense blackberry character. Full-bodied, thick and very jammy, with loads of fruit and flavor. I like the jammy Aussie style of this. Still fresh at the end. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2008. 3,300 ca —James Suckling

DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Silex 2004
96 points, $83
Cuts like a knife, with live-wire Key lime, grapefruit, chalk and sea salt notes. Rich and powerful, but very nervy through the long, mouthwatering, collar-grabbing finish. Almost severe now in its minerality, but just wait. Best from 2007 through 2011. 2 —James Molesworth

HUGEL Riesling Alsace Vendange Tardive 1996
95 points, $71
Like two different wines from the nose to the palate. A gorgeous bouquet of truffle, lemon candy, butter and dried tropical fruit introduces this racy, electric white. Quite dry, with the vivid acidity keeping it fresh and crisp. The exotic flavors return —Bruce Sanderson

ZIND-HUMBRECHT Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Turckheim Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive 2004
94 points, $87
Heady, with loads of honey, apricot and caramel corn notes. Moderately sweet, concentrated and a little raw today, so give it about five years. The aroma is really singing, but the palate needs time to align itself. Best from 2008 through 2020. 430 cases —Bruce Sanderson

LUCE DELLA VITE Toscana Luce 2004
92 points, $75
Black color. Intense, very ripe aromas of crushed berries, licorice and cherry. Full-bodied, big and jammy, with chewy tannins and a long finish. A full-throttle, impressive young wine. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2007. 4,000 cases made. —James Suckling
