Jul. 16, 2001: CHÉREAU PÈRE & FILS Sauvignon Touraine Domaine La Prévôté 2000 (86 points, $8)

From the Loire comes this well-priced, crisp and focused Sauvignon, crackling with gooseberry, grass and citrus flavors on a balanced frame. Good lingering finish, too. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 12, 2001: HESS Chardonnay California (86 points, $11)

Here's a good buy in California's most popular white variety. This one's round and buttery up front, with pear, apple and lemon flavors carrying through the tangy finish. Drink now. 170,000 cases made.

Jul. 09, 2001: VIÑA SAN PEDRO Cabernet Sauvignon Lontué Castillo de Molina Reserva 1999 (86 points, $10)

Polished Chilean red, with a lot of creamy toast and vanilla notes up front and sweet black cherry and currant flavors on the finish. Fans of the style will find the low price a bonus. Drink now through 2002. Should be easy to find some of the 60,000 case —James Molesworth

Jul. 05, 2001: BAROSSA VALLEY ESTATE Chardonnay South Australia 1998 (87 points, $10)

Smooth and generous with its nutmeg-scented pear and cream flavors, round and refined through the finish as the flavors echo, this is a good example from Australia's ever-improving Chardonnay scene, for still a reasonable price. Drink now through 2004. 10 —Harvey Steiman

Jun. 25, 2001: HERON Merlot California 1999 (85 points, $12)

Great bang for the buck with this round and soft California Merlot, with good intensity to the pleasant flavors of plum, currant and cranberry, underscored by soft tannins. Drink now through 2003. 7,000 cases made.
