May. 16, 2005: LUCIEN LE MOINE Bonnes Mares 2002 (97 points, $170)

Wrapped up tight; not much aroma or flavor. Shows sweetness and concentration midpalate, then the gripping structure takes over. Stays fresh, with a sense of verve on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

May. 14, 2005: ALTESINO Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1999 (92 points, $100)

Lots of plum and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a very fruity finish. A rich wine that still needs bottle time. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling

May. 13, 2005: MICHEL & STÉPHANE OGIER Côte-Rôtie 2001 (92 points, $65)

Gorgeous aromas of lavender, olive, game and worn saddle leather are followed by a ripe, suave palate of dark berry, coffee and toast. An alluring, bittersweet cocoa note chimes in on the finish. Drink now through 2013. —James Molesworth

May. 12, 2005: JOAN SIMÓ Priorat Les Eres Vinyes Velles 2002 (94 points, $70)

An alluring red, refined yet powerful, subtle yet seductive. Bright blackberry, mineral, coffee and anise flavors are framed by ripe, muscular tannins, which yield to fruit and spice on the long finish. Balanced and polished. Drink now through 2010. 200 c —Thomas Matthews

May. 11, 2005: TOLLOT-BEAUT Corton-Bressandes 2002 (94 points, $75)

Superb. Rich and sumptuous, with an intense core of concentrated cherry, spice and mineral. Combines power, finesse and an old-vine sappiness. Needs time to bring all the elements together, but what a pleasure it will be. Fine, lingering finish. Best from —Bruce Sanderson
