LEEUWIN Chardonnay Margaret River Art Series 2003
94 points, $80
Rich, ripe and seamless, not quite as dense as some vintages, but it has real elegance. It plays its citrusy pineapple, guava, pear and spice flavors over a polished frame, letting them linger effortlessly. Could gain greater depth with age. Drink now thr —Harvey Steiman

JEAN-LOUIS CHAVE Hermitage White 2003
97 points, $250
Offers remarkable focus and purity for the vintage, with streamlined macadamia nut, acacia flower, blanched almond and white peach flavors backed by fine minerality. Long, pure finish just sails on. Drink now through 2026. 500 cases made. —James Molesworth

92 points, $50

DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Silex 2004
96 points, $83
Cuts like a knife, with live-wire Key lime, grapefruit, chalk and sea salt notes. Rich and powerful, but very nervy through the long, mouthwatering, collar-grabbing finish. Almost severe now in its minerality, but just wait. Best from 2007 through 2011. 2 —James Molesworth

HUGEL Riesling Alsace Vendange Tardive 1996
95 points, $71
Like two different wines from the nose to the palate. A gorgeous bouquet of truffle, lemon candy, butter and dried tropical fruit introduces this racy, electric white. Quite dry, with the vivid acidity keeping it fresh and crisp. The exotic flavors return —Bruce Sanderson
