Dec. 08, 2004: LA VALENTINA Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Bellovedere 2000 (92 points, $45)

Very beautiful on the nose, with perfumed and subtle aromas of flowers and berries, hints of tar and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with very fine-grained tannins and a silky finish. Classy red. Still needs time in the bottle. Serious red. Best after 2004. 600 —James Suckling

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
