M. CHAPOUTIER Hermitage White Chante-Alouette 2003
92 points, $74
Ripe, concentrated layers of papaya, fig and macadamia nut are woven with mineral, piecrust and fresh, sweetened butter notes, all rippling through a long showy finish that alternates between waxy and racy. Hard to resist now, but better with time. Drink —James Molesworth

LES VINS DE VIENNE St.-Joseph L'Arzelle 2003
93 points, $33
Lovely cocoa and violet aromas give way to a full-bodied palate of blackberry, black currant, tar and grilled beef flavors that are then pierced by a terrifically minerally, racy finish. Needs to shed some toast in the cellar first though. Best from 2006 —James Molesworth
Oct. 11, 2005
PAOLO SCAVINO Barolo Carobric 2001
93 points, $90
Thick and rich with lots of plum, berry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with integrated tannins and a long finish. Solid and compacted wine. Best after 2007. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling
Oct. 10, 2005
PENFOLDS Chardonnay South Eastern Australia Yattarna 2002
93 points, $65
Strives for delicacy and refinement over power, with lovely pear, lime and subtle spices. Tremendously long and should be even better as it fleshes out. Drink now through 2012. 225 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

ALAIN JAUME Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine Grand Veneur Les Origines 2003
94 points, $40
Jaw-dropping raspberry ganache and plum fruit, along with cocoa, tar, hoisin sauce and mineral notes, are flamboyantly displayed, while an intense tarry, minerally drive extends the finish. Best from 2007 through 2025. 1,000 cases imported. —James Molesworth
