Mar. 25, 2005: RAMONET Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot 2002 (93 points, $65)

Dense and tightly wound, offering toast, peach, citrus and mineral flavors matched to a lively structure and supple texture. This smolders under the surface with tension and energy. Terrific length. Best from 2006 through 2012. 425 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 24, 2005: VIEUX-CHÂTEAU-CERTAN Pomerol 2002 (92 points, $70)

Aromas of sweet plums and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a solid core of fruit. This is very tightly knit and needs to unravel with bottle age. Turns big and chewy with air. This has excellent potential. Best after 20 —James Suckling

Mar. 23, 2005: RAMONET Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet 2002 (92 points, $150)

A terrific '02 white, silky, concentrated, vibrant and dynamic. It's full-bodied yet well-toned, unleashing its peach, floral, hazelnut and tobacco notes in layers. Firmly structured and beautifully integrated with the oak, it ends with a long butterscotc —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 22, 2005: EGON MÜLLER Riesling Auslese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Scharzhofberger 2003 (95 points, $160)

Super auslese. Ripe and concentrated, yet focused and bright, marshaling its lime, peach and vanilla flavors right through the lingering finish. Terrific balance and harmony for the vintage. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 19, 2005: CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET Pauillac 2002 (92 points, $35)

A solid wine with berry, currant and mineral character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Racy. Alfred Tesseron is making excellent wine nearly every year now. One of the few 2002s better than 2001. Best after 2008. —James Suckling
