JEAN GRIVOT Clos de Vougeot 2002
94 points, $85
Tight and backward, but offers dense textures and concentrated cherry, blackberry and spice flavors. A solid core of fruit midpalate. Tannins are robust now; needs to be stored about 10 years. Best from 2012 through 2025. 125 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

LISINI Brunello di Montalcino Ugolaia 1999
95 points, $125
Fantastic. Loads of blackberry, cherry, cedar and tanned leather on the nose. Full-bodied, with a dense, powerful palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. A muscular Brunello with all the stuffing for aging. Best after 2006. 500 cases made. —James Suckling

ROBERT FOLEY Claret Napa Valley 2002
96 points, $100
Dark, rich and massive, with gobs of flavor built around vibrant currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit, layers of exotic spicy oak nuances and rather big, ripe tannins. Yet for all its size, it's powerful and balanced, with a long, luxurious aftertaste —James Laube

LUCIEN LE MOINE Bonnes Mares 2002
97 points, $170
Wrapped up tight; not much aroma or flavor. Shows sweetness and concentration midpalate, then the gripping structure takes over. Stays fresh, with a sense of verve on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
May. 14, 2005
ALTESINO Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1999
92 points, $100
Lots of plum and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a very fruity finish. A rich wine that still needs bottle time. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling
