Mar. 12, 2005: MICHEL COLIN-DELÉGER Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers 2002 (92 points, $60)

A rich white, loaded with peach, lemon custard, nutmeg and clove. The acidity is on the aggressive side now, but there's concentration and flesh to offset it. Finely detailed on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 600 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 11, 2005: H. DÖNNHOFF Riesling Spätlese Nahe Norheimer Dellchen 2003 (93 points, $49)

Fresh, elegant and backed by a lively structure, this Riesling balances its fruit and acidity deftly, with a lingering finish. Peach and mineral are the main notes, with an underlying citrus tone. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 10, 2005: DUMOL Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Ryan 2002 (94 points, $68)

This Pinot provides a rich, elegant band of spicy wild berry, black cherry and raspberry scents accented by nutmeg, spice and hazelnut before returning to the delicious medley of berry flavors. Impeccably balanced, graceful and delicate. Drink now through —James Laube

Mar. 09, 2005: CHÂTEAU COS-D'ESTOURNEL St.-Estèphe 2002 (93 points, $70)

Gorgeous aromas of currants and berries with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pretty finish. Silky. This is extremely good for the vintage. The team of Cos worked hard on their 2002 and it shows. Best after 2009. —James Suckling

Mar. 08, 2005: CHÂTEAU BEAUSÉJOUR DUFFAU-LAGAROSSE St.-Emilion 2002 (91 points, $50)

Opulent aromas of plums, berries and green olives. Full-bodied, with vanilla, fruit flavors and lovely silky tannins. This is a caressing wine. Not as opulent as the 2000 but equally pleasing. Best after 2007. —James Suckling
