daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Jul. 09, 2003: ALLEGRINI Veronese Palazzo della Torre 1999 (90 points, $18)

A gorgeous wine from Italy's Veneto region. This shows beautiful perfumes of ripe fruit, with hints of spicy oak and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with superfine, silky tannins and a long, long finish. I always love this wine. Best from 2004 through 2008. 1 —James Suckling

Jul. 07, 2003: L'ECOLE NO. 41 Sémillon Columbia Valley Barrel Fermented 2001 (89 points, $15)

This Washington Sémillon is smooth, generous and nicely shaded to show off its fig, citrus and black pepper aromas and flavors, which remain vivid on the lively finish. Drink now through 2005. 2,598 cases made. Smart Buys. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 03, 2003: CHÂTEAU DE SANCERRE Sancerre 2001 (89 points, $15)

Solid effort for '01, with pear, peach and butter flavors, ripe texture, and notes of straw and melon on the finish. Modern-style Sancerre with ripe acidity keeping it honest. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. Smart Buys. —James Molesworth

Jun. 26, 2003: FOREAU Vouvray Moelleux Domaine du Clos Naudin 1999 (93 points, $30)

From a lean vintage, this late-release dessert wine still manages to offer gorgeous apple, brown bread, spice cake, cardamom, beeswax and honeycomb notes. Sweet yet still nervy. Has a worn feel, but also plenty of life, with a laser-beam finish. Drink now —James Molesworth

Jun. 25, 2003: DOPFF & IRION Riesling Alsace Les Murailles Domaines de Riquewihr 2001 (90 points, $19)

A focused, dry Riesling, muscular and bracing in structure, with apple, lemon and mineral aromas and flavors that need time to harmonize. Great length. Perfect for roast pork or veal chops. Best from 2004 through 2012. 3,000 cases made. Smart Buys. —Bruce Sanderson
