Dec. 15, 2004: DUPONT-TISSERANDOT Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques 2002 (94 points, $70)

Beautiful ripe, pure flavors of cherry and spice, lush in texture and backed by firm tannins. It starts out beguiling, shutting down on the finish, suggesting a few more years before approaching this red. Fine balance and harmony. Best from 2007 through 2 —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 14, 2004: DOMAINE ROULOT Meursault Perrières 2002 (93 points, $137)

Harmonious and fine. Starts out subtly, then builds in intensity, unraveling its lime, apple, hazelnut and spice notes gracefully. It's rich, elegant and beautifully balanced, ending with a seam of mineral. Classy, with a sense of terroir. Best fro —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 13, 2004: CHAMPY Mazis-Chambertin 2002 (95 points, $117)

Kirsch aromas and flavors, with loads of mineral and animal intensity, this is a tightly wound, backward red. Chewy and concentrated, it needs time to resolve its tannins and show all its charms. A little rustic, yet impressive. Best from 2007 through 202 —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 11, 2004: SOTER Pinot Noir Yamhill County Beacon Hill 2002 (92 points, $48)

Ripe, round and generous, firm in texture, with lots of plum, cherry, currant and spice flavors, finishing on a cedar note as the fruit lingers nicely. Should get better with time. Drink now through 2010. 1,500 cases made. From Oregon. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 10, 2004: MÉO-CAMUZET Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 2002 (92 points, $113)

Perfumed and silky, this red begins with aromas of violet and black currant, picking up hints of earth and spice on the palate. It's very elegant and lacy, with an attractive, spicy finish. Enjoyable now, but will improve. Best from 2006 through 2012. Fr —Bruce Sanderson
