Dec. 01, 2005 DE ST.-GALL Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Cuvée Orpale 1995
94 points, $95
Puligny with bubbles. Very aromatic, with honey, lemon pie and mineral aromas and flavors married to a fine, lush texture. It almost seems soft, yet there's a vibrant acidity that keeps it focused and lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 50,00 —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 30, 2005
KRUG Brut Champagne 1990
97 points, $224
An aristocrat. Big-boned and intense, yet with finesse and complex flavors of coconut, whole-grain bread, ginger, citrus and honey. Waves of flavor saturate the palate and the long finish picks up a mineral, smoky note. Very harmonious from start to finis —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 29, 2005
VEUVE CLICQUOT Brut Champagne La Grande Dame 1996
95 points, $180
Subtle aspects of biscuit and walnut accent the whole-grain bread, lemon, honey and coffee flavors in this regal Champagne. Wonderful finesse and harmony underscore the innate power and vinosity. A match for Dover sole or roast chicken. Drink now through —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 28, 2005
BRUNO GIACOSA Barbaresco Rabajà Riserva 2001
93 points, $145
Pretty berry, plum and cherry character with lots of toasted oak in the midpalate. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Big and structured wine, in a subtle way. To be released spring 2006. Best after 2005. 560 cases made. —James Suckling
Nov. 26, 2005
AKARUA Pinot Noir Central Otago Bannockburn 2003
92 points, $40
Tangy, lively and remarkably generous with its pure blueberry, plum and explosively spicy aromas and flavors that burst across the palate. Has tremendous character but it's not excessively weighty. Yummy stuff. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
