Mar. 31, 2004: PASCAL COTAT Sancerre Les Monts Damnés 2002 (92 points, $36)

This crackles, with lemon verbena, white asparagus, chamomile flower and honeysuckle notes on a rich, yet nervy frame. Strong chalky finish begs for a little Crotin de Chavignol. Delicious. Drink now through 2006. 830 cases made. From France. —James Molesworth

Mar. 30, 2004: GUNDERLOCH Riesling Beerenauslese Rheinhessen Nackenheim Rothenberg 2002 (95 points, $195/375ml)

Intense. A deep golden color marks this BA, whose spice and earth aromas and candied orange and caramel notes get support from the vivid acidity. Very much like an eiswein in character. Fine lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. 30 cases imported. Fro —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 29, 2004: CHÂTEAU LATOUR Pauillac 2001 (95 points, $150)

Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Like I said from barrel, it's powerful and fast. Serious stuff. Best after 2010. Collectible. From Franc —James Suckling

Mar. 25, 2004: CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD Pauillac 2001 (96 points, $150)

Stick your nose in this and it says something: "I am special." Deep and generous aromas of blackberries, fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a superlong finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater. Best after 2010. 22,000 —James Suckling

Mar. 20, 2004: CHÂTEAU LE PIN Pomerol 2001 (95 points, $550)

An ultrapretty and succulent red with berry, tobacco and tarragon character. Full-bodied, with gorgeous tannins and a long, long finish. Almost Burgundian. Refined and seductive. I like this better than the 2000. Best after 2006. Collectible. —James Suckling
