Nov. 16, 2005 CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Champagne Champagne Charlie 1985
96 points, $125
Intense and concentrated with flavors of coffee, candied berry and citrus and vanilla pastry, this is a hedonist's Champagne. Full, lush and firm, it saturates the palate and the finish goes on and on. Ideal to enjoy now. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cas —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 15, 2005 CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Champagne Réserve NV
92 points, $40
Seductive toast, coffee and hazelnut aromas and flavors highlight this medium-bodied, elegant bubbly. It's intense, yet graceful, with balance and a long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Would serve well as an aperitif or with food. Drink now through 2010. 4,7 —Bruce Sanderson

LIVIO FELLUGA Colli Orientali del Friuli Terre Alte 2002
92 points, $35
This shows lots of character but it's reserved and refined. Aromas of toasted oak, apple and peaches. Full-bodied, with white pepper and apple flavors. Long and lively. A fantastic blend—this is now one of the best whites in Italy. Tokai, Sauvignon Blan —James Suckling

MATRIARCH Napa Valley 2002
93 points, $75
Wonderful aromatics, with rich cassis, kirsch and blackberry. Both intense and concentrated, this shows a suppleness at midpalate that lets the flavors glide across the finish. It ends with excellent structure and a touch of cedar. Best from 2007 through —James Laube

BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA Malbec Mendoza Alta 2002
93 points, $45
Deftly toasted, with vanilla and mocha suavely intertwined with lush plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit. Long, plush and smoky through the finish, with the fruit taking an encore. A beauty. Drink now through 2008. 4,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
