Sep. 12, 2000: CHÂTEAU DE LANCYRE Coteaux du Languedoc Hautes Terres 1998 (85 points, $10)

1998 was considered to be a very good vintage in the southern French wine region of the Languedoc. Many of the '98's from this promising region are now starting to hit our shores. Warm, mature-tasting, with dried plum flavors and spicy mocha notes on the —Kim Marcus

Sep. 07, 2000: CAVES DES PAPES Côtes du Rhône Héritage Elevé en Foudre de Chêne (87 points, $10)

Another example of the high quality of the '98 vintage in the Rhône. A pleasurable red, medium-bodied, offering plenty of ripe fruit and ripe tannins that fold in nicely. Well-made and wallet-friendly. Drink now through 2002. 'Elevé en Foudre de Chêne' —Per-Henrik Mansson

Sep. 02, 2000: BARTON & GUESTIER Côtes du Rhône Tradition 1998 (87 points, $10)

Here's a solid value from the great '98 vintage in the Rhône. Intriguing. This reasonably priced red is rather reserved, showing more wet earth than ripe fruit. Fairly tough, with a firm tannic backbone, but you also sense a richness and emerging fatness —Per-Henrik Mansson

Sep. 01, 2000: VIÑA SAN ESTEBAN Merlot Rapel Valley Reserva 1997 (85 points, $9)

1997 was a good vintage in South America, and here's a good example. It's firm for a Chilean Merlot, with a chewy texture and ripe currant and cassis flavors that pick up a little smoky, coffee note on the lively, juicy finish. Solid wine, sound value. Dr —James Molesworth
