CHAMPY Mazis-Chambertin 2002
95 points, $117
Kirsch aromas and flavors, with loads of mineral and animal intensity, this is a tightly wound, backward red. Chewy and concentrated, it needs time to resolve its tannins and show all its charms. A little rustic, yet impressive. Best from 2007 through 202 —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 11, 2004
SOTER Pinot Noir Yamhill County Beacon Hill 2002
92 points, $48
Ripe, round and generous, firm in texture, with lots of plum, cherry, currant and spice flavors, finishing on a cedar note as the fruit lingers nicely. Should get better with time. Drink now through 2010. 1,500 cases made. From Oregon. —Harvey Steiman

MÉO-CAMUZET Vosne-Romanée Les Chaumes 2002
92 points, $113
Perfumed and silky, this red begins with aromas of violet and black currant, picking up hints of earth and spice on the palate. It's very elegant and lacy, with an attractive, spicy finish. Enjoyable now, but will improve. Best from 2006 through 2012. Fr —Bruce Sanderson

SCALA DEI Priorat Iugiter 2001
92 points, $37
This powerful red is packed with blackberry and raisin flavors, with chocolate, earth, licorice and spice notes that struggle to emerge over punishing tannins. The finish shows more finesse, with lingering spice and fruit. Will time tame it? Best after 20 —Thomas Matthews
Dec. 08, 2004
LA VALENTINA Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Bellovedere 2000
92 points, $45
Very beautiful on the nose, with perfumed and subtle aromas of flowers and berries, hints of tar and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with very fine-grained tannins and a silky finish. Classy red. Still needs time in the bottle. Serious red. Best after 2004. 600 —James Suckling
