Sep. 07, 2004: CHÂTEAU RIEUSSEC Sauternes 2001 (100 points, $80)

Like lemon curd on the nose that turns to honey and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit. Yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. The finish really kicks in. This i —James Suckling

Aug. 27, 2004: ZIND-HUMBRECHT Pinot Gris Alsace Clos Windsbuhl Sélection des Grains Nobles 2001 (100 points, $264/375ml)

This is the first SGN from ZH's great Clos Windsbuhl vineyard. Like liquid candy, this is a mouthful of apricot, quince, coconut, honey and smoke flavors matched to a thick texture and vibrant structure. Despite the concentration, it seemingly melts in th —Bruce Sanderson
