BOIZEL Brut Champagne Joyau de France 1995
92 points, $72
An opulent version, with rich floral, peach and citrus notes up front, then the acidity sweeps in, leaving a bracing finish. A little awkward today, this just needs more time. Best from 2006 through 2015. 4,165 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

PAUL AUTARD Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2003
92 points, $35
Nearly candied up front, with a hard shell around the black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors, but sweet mocha, spice and mineral notes emerge in the end, where fine-grained tannins carry the finish. A beauty that should develop nicely. Best from 2008 —James Molesworth

KOSTA BROWNE Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Cohn Vineyard 2003
92 points, $48
Intense, concentrated and well-structured, with flavors built around cola, sassafras and dusty wild berry; this wine quickly picks up momentum and the flavors grow on you, showing a measure of restraint that may blossom with a year or two. Best from 2006 —James Laube
Aug. 17, 2005
MATHILDE & YVES GANGLOFF Côte-Rôtie La Sereine Noire 2001
92 points, $95
Gorgeous, with supple black cherry and boysenberry fruit flavors riding atop mineral, cocoa and olive notes. In a modern style, as the fruit holds sway on the finish supported by fine-grained tannins, but with a fine underlying sense of terroir. Dr —James Molesworth

EHLERS ESTATE Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena 1886 2002
92 points, $75
Deliciously rich and polished, with tiers of spicy currant, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's sharply focused. The tannins are ripe and firm and it takes on an earthy, mineral and minty-herbal edge on the finish. Best from 2007 through 2013. 409 ca —James Laube
