DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Silex 2004
96 points, $83
Cuts like a knife, with live-wire Key lime, grapefruit, chalk and sea salt notes. Rich and powerful, but very nervy through the long, mouthwatering, collar-grabbing finish. Almost severe now in its minerality, but just wait. Best from 2007 through 2011. 2 —James Molesworth

HUGEL Riesling Alsace Vendange Tardive 1996
95 points, $71
Like two different wines from the nose to the palate. A gorgeous bouquet of truffle, lemon candy, butter and dried tropical fruit introduces this racy, electric white. Quite dry, with the vivid acidity keeping it fresh and crisp. The exotic flavors return —Bruce Sanderson

ZIND-HUMBRECHT Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Turckheim Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive 2004
94 points, $87
Heady, with loads of honey, apricot and caramel corn notes. Moderately sweet, concentrated and a little raw today, so give it about five years. The aroma is really singing, but the palate needs time to align itself. Best from 2008 through 2020. 430 cases —Bruce Sanderson
Oct. 26, 2006
LUCE DELLA VITE Toscana Luce 2004
92 points, $75
Black color. Intense, very ripe aromas of crushed berries, licorice and cherry. Full-bodied, big and jammy, with chewy tannins and a long finish. A full-throttle, impressive young wine. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2007. 4,000 cases made. —James Suckling
Oct. 25, 2006
PAHLMEYER Napa Valley 2005
92 points, $110
Plump and generous, with fleshy currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's supple and focused. Ripe without going overboard. Finishes with a burst of sweet ripe currant and blackberry fruit and ripe tannins. Best from 2007 through 2012. 4,739 cases —James Laube
