Aug. 02, 2004: PHILIPPE DELESVAUX Coteaux du Layon Sélection de Grains Nobles 2001 (98 points, $52/500ml)

From the Loire, this botrityzed Chenin Blanc has all the explosive orange peel, maple, fig and quince paste flavors of a great sweet wine, but it never gets heavy, while extra notes of spice, green tea, mango and kumquat seem to hit every taste bud you ha —James Molesworth

Jul. 31, 2004: GAJA Langhe Conteisa 2000 (97 points, $150)

Very dark color but right. Incredible aromas of crushed strawberries, raspberries and flowers. Full-bodied, with beautifully silky tannins and a long and caressing finish. A true beauty of a wine. This is real Nebbiolo. Conteisa comes from the Cerequio v —James Suckling

Jul. 29, 2004: CA' BIANCA Barolo 2000 (92 points, $36)

Focused and dense plum and blackberry fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, jammy and rich. Soft tannins. Fruit forward. Seriously good for this estate. Best after 2008. 5,000 cases made. Highly Recommended. From Italy. —James Suckling

Jul. 28, 2004: E. GUIGAL Côte-Rôtie La Turque 2000 (97 points, $300)

Smelling like a raspberry and Port reduction, this manages to let an enormous core of bittersweet chocolate, plum compote, chocolate ganache and exotic spice flavors glide across the palate. Its obvious muscularity strides in on the finish and the flavors —James Molesworth

Jul. 27, 2004: GIOVANNI MANZONE Barolo Le Gramolere 2000 (93 points, $40)

Loads of spices, cinnamon and cloves on the nose follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Beauty. Balanced. Manzone always makes harmonious wine. Best after 2009. 850 cases made. Highly Recommended. From Italy. —James Suckling
