E. GUIGAL Condrieu 2005
90 points, $50
Very bright, with star fruit, braised fennel and fig notes that glide along a rich, creamy texture. Lots of minerality buried on the finish too. Drink now through 2008. 12,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

ANTINORI Brunello di Montalcino Pian delle Vigne 2001
90 points, $65
Aromas of exotic fruit with cherry, coffee and toasted oak. Full-bodied and verging on jammy, but rich, opulent and fruity. Round tannins. Slightly one-dimensional. Best after 2009. 15,000 cases made. —James Suckling

LANDMARK Chardonnay Sonoma County Damaris Reserve 2003
92 points, $36
Smooth, rich and harmonious, with layers of creamy pear, fig, apricot and lemony citrus nuances framed by light smoky, toasty oak. The finish pulls the flavors together in a tight bundle, ending with a dash of bubblegum. Drink now through 2008. 1,000 case —James Laube
Apr. 13, 2006
KUMEU RIVER Chardonnay Kumeu 2003
92 points, $33
With distinct mineral and floral aromas, this feels very Burgundian, especially the way its lively acidity points up the lime, stone, pear and date flavors, finishing long. Best from 2007 through 2014. 2,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
Apr. 12, 2006
SBRAGIA FAMILY Chardonnay Napa Valley Gamble Ranch Vineyard 2003
93 points, $40
Superopulent, with delicious layers of fig, apricot, citrus, honey and smoky oak, with a toasty marshmallow flavor folding in on the finish. Never loses its intensity, finishing with a full-throttle aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 1,500 cases made. —James Laube
