Dec. 10, 2005 PIERRE GIMONNET & FILS Brut Chardonnay Champagne Spécial Club 1998
92 points, $62
A refined Champagne, with a silky mousse and focused flavors of grapefruit, hazelnut and flowers. Very pure and well-put together, it glides to a long finish with a fruity aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 09, 2005
VERAISON Syrah Napa Valley Black Bart Stagecoach Vineyards 2003
92 points, $48
Delicious grapey wild berry, blackberry and boysenberry flavors are pure and focused, supple and elegant, with nuances of pepper, nutmeg and mocha, ending with a long, rich burst of ripe fruit and espresso bean. Drink now through 2009. 613 cases made. —James Laube
Dec. 08, 2005
DUTSCHKE Shiraz Barossa Valley Oscar Semmler 2003
92 points, $60
Dark and juicy, a dense mouthful of berry and spice flavors, picking up an earthy note as the finish persists impressively against ultrafine tannins. Has intense power but it ends up being graceful. Drink now through 2013. 300 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
Dec. 07, 2005
RENÉ ENGEL Échézeaux 2002
93 points, $110
Crisp and fruit-driven, with a chocolate edge to its cherry and spice notes. The tannins come in on the finish. It's hard to get a sense of the depth here; there's still a lot of oak showing and its tight on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 06, 2005
VIÑA COBOS Malbec Mendoza Bramare 2003
93 points, $85
Gorgeous fruit--fig, plum, black currant--all layered with suave mocha-infused toast, mineral, loam and dark chocolate flavors. Long and very deep on the finish, with the fruit cruising effortlessly. Drink now through 2011. 765 cases made. —James Molesworth
