GROS FRÈRE & SOEUR Grands Échézeaux 2001
93 points, $125
Aromatic, offering floral, cherry, spice and a touch of game, then concentrated, ripe fruit on the palate. It's all backed by a vivid structure and ripe, well-integrated tannins. Terrific finish. Seductive 2001 Burgundy. Drink now through 2015. 200 cases —Bruce Sanderson

DOMAINE CHARVIN Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2001

CASANOVA DI NERI Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 1999
94 points, $64
Warm and ripe red with lots of blackberry and cedary oak character. Full-bodied, and very thick yet refined and silky. This should turn out fabulously. Another super wine from Casanova. Best after 2007. 5,025 cases made. Highly Recommended. From Italy. —James Suckling

MARCHESI DE' FRESCOBALDI Brunello di Montalcino Castelgiocondo 1999
95 points, $56
This is one of the most serious producers in Montalcino now. A tight and chewy wine, with full body and lots of raisin and spice character. Impressive ripe tannins. Needs time in the bottle. This is thick and powerful. Give it time. Best after 2007. 21,66 —James Suckling
