PAHLMEYER Chardonnay Napa Valley 2006
90 points, $70
Intense, if a bit raw in texture. The core pear, apple, spice and citrus notes are fresh and vibrant, and the finish is long and persistent. Needs bottle time. Best to cellar through 2008. Best from 2008 through 2012. 3,025 cases made. —James Laube

VIE DI ROMANS Pinot Grigio Isonzo del Friuli Dessimis 2005
91 points, $40
Delicious, almost exotic mix of apple, sultana and Christmas cake spice on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with intense flavors mirroring the nose and a lingering, almost oily finish. Exquisite. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. —James Suckling
Aug. 25, 2008
JERMANN Venezia-Giulia Dreams 2006
92 points, $83
There's apple tart on the nose, with cream and caramel undertones. Full-bodied, with lots of dried tropical fruits, such as mango and pineapple. Long and very flavorful, yet racy and fresh. Gorgeous and generous Chardonnay. Drink now. 3,300 cases made. —James Suckling
Aug. 23, 2008
BEAUMONT DES CRAYÈRES Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Fleur Noire 2002
92 points, $45
On the dry side and crisp, yet with fine intensity to its cherry, currant and ginger flavors. It has a firm structure, rich texture and borders on full-bodied. Nice dried berry aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 4,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Aug. 22, 2008
PETER MICHAEL Chardonnay Sonoma County Belle Côte 2006
92 points, $75
Sleek and restrained, with flavors that build slowly, revealing subtle pear, fig, tangerine and honeysuckle notes that unfold gracefully, ending with a tight focus and smoky, toasty, fruity flavors. Drink now through 2011. 2,700 cases made. —James Laube
