Sep. 23, 2004: MOMMESSIN Clos de Tart 2002 (93 points, $150)

A big red, round and sappy, offering black cherry, kirsch and sweet spice aromas and flavors. It picks up some chocolate and smoke midpalate, with the richness and exuberant fruit of the vintage. Fine length, needs time to absorb the oak and tannins. Best —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 22, 2004: ALEX GAMBAL Corton-Charlemagne 2002 (95 points, $125)

Terrific. This is dense, concentrated and smoky, with floral and mineral aromas and flavors permeating the finely-wrought, racy structure. It has the flesh and intensity of flavor for balance, but requires a few years to really come out of its shell. Best —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 09, 2004: CHÂTEAU GUIRAUD Sauternes 2001 (96 points, $50)

Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples. Full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard not to drink now —James Suckling

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

Sep. 03, 2004: CHÂTEAU CLOS HAUT-PEYRAGUEY Sauternes 2001 (97 points, $50)

Smells like pure caramel with just a hint of dried apricot. Full-bodied, ultra sweet and fabulously concentrated. This goes on for minutes. Coats your palate but shows fab acidity. Big, juicy young sticky. Best after 2010. 2,275 cases made. Highly Recomme —James Suckling
