CLOS MOGADOR Priorat Manyetes 2001
93 points, $90
This massive red shows a thick texture and powerful tannins that nearly mask intense flavors of black currant, espresso and anise. But after the concentration and the alcohol, the finish echoes with sweet fruit and spice. Will the fruit outlast the tannin —Thomas Matthews

ALAIN GRAILLOT Crozes-Hermitage La Guiraude 2003
93 points, $53
Nearly screams New World on the nose, with a torrent of exotic blueberry and blackberry fruit, but a laser of minerality, along with tobacco and tar, define it in the end. Packed with fruit and ripe structure on the superlong finish, and without any hard —James Molesworth

DOMAINE DES BAUMARD Coteaux du Layon Clos Ste.-Catherine 2003
93 points, $45
Like biting into a fresh pear, this has pure, clean cut aromas and flavors, with mango, quince, dried pineapple and fig followed by alluring mineral and floral notes on the finish. Long and sweet, but refined and graceful. Drink now through 2015. 400 case —James Molesworth

DOMAINE BOIS DE BOURSAN Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée des Félix 2003
94 points, $80
Captivating aromas of hot stones, game and Provençal herbs are followed by a powerhouse palate of black currant, tar, roasted chestnut and bacony toast. Chewy and muscular, this will need cellaring, but has the stuffing and structure to last. Best from 2 —James Molesworth

PAUL AUTARD Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée La Côte Ronde 2003
94 points, $60
Beautifully pure blackberry and raspberry fruit is woven with toast, grilled herb and tar flavors, all buttressed with a firm, tannic spine. Concentrated, long, chewy finish opens in the glass to show an elegant side as well. Should age wonderfully. Drink —James Molesworth
