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

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

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
Nov. 24, 2005
DE VENOGE Brut Champagne Millésimé 1995
92 points, $65
A bold '95, slightly coarse in texture, yet full of whole-grain bread, berry and honey flavors. It's mouthfilling, full-bodied and ends with a tactile sensation on the finish. Lingering mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 4,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
