S.A. HUËT Vouvray Moelleux Clos du Bourg 1ère Trie 2002
94 points, $60
Full-bodied, with sweet earth, truffle, graham cracker, honey and spice aromas and flavors. Also shows matchstick and apple flavors. Long, sweet finish ripples with acidity. Shows more flash and power now from its sweetness. Minerality should develop with —James Molesworth

BODEGAS SIERRA CANTABRIA Rioja Finca El Bosque 2002
93 points, $142
This plush, international-style red is rich with ripe black fruit and sweet oak. Ripe tannins are well-integrated, and it goes down like velvet, with a long finish of blackberry and lilac. Seamless. Drink now through 2010. 50 cases imported. —Thomas Matthews

FRANÇOIS RAVENEAU Chablis Butteaux 2002
94 points, $99
Succulent, with a hint of oak masking a mineral element now, yet intense and focused, with honey, apple, lemon and spice flavors. Builds on the palate and improves with air. Fine length. Needs time. Best from 2007 through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

BODEGAS SIERRA CANTABRIA Rioja Amancio 2001
96 points, $142
A ravishing red wine. Dominates the palate, with muscular tannins and mouthfilling flavors of plum, blackberry, coffee and dark chocolate. It has it all: superripe fruit, lavish oak, heady alcohol and a finish that just won't quit. Quite a departure from —Thomas Matthews
