$15 to $30

Sep. 10, 1999: LOUIS JADOT Savigny-les-Beaune Les Vergelesses 1997 (91 points, $28)

This beautiful '97 red Burgundy delivers tar and petrol aromas but also a rich, ripe, supple yet very clean and pure mouthfeel. Gorgeous integration of plum, blackberry and toast notes, with a racy and totally natural-tasting finish. Brilliant winemaking

Sep. 03, 1999: PRIDE Merlot Napa Valley (92 points, $30)

A step up in price but worth the search, as this is a winery on the rise. Wonderful ripe fruit, with rich, complex cherry, currant, anise, cedar and spice. Gains depth and nuance on the finish, where it keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 200

Sep. 01, 1999: ROEDERER ESTATE Brut Anderson Valley NV (90 points, $19)

Rich and toasty aromas up front, and the follow-up features a focused, complex blend of lemon, grapefruit, herb, green apple and pear flavors. It's bright and clean on the finish. Quite refreshing. Drink now through 2002. 67,000 cases made.

Aug. 30, 1999: BOLLINGER Brut Champagne Special Cuvee (90 points, $30)

A mellow, gold-amber color and ripe, generous peach, honey and fig flavors indicate that this is wonderfully mature, ample and enjoyable. Has great balance and a long finish. Drink now.

Aug. 23, 1999: CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE Chardonnay Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard 1997 (92 points, $25)

Ripe and intense yet deftly balancing its sharply focused core of vibrant pear, apple and citrus flavors with creamy, spicy overtones, all of which come together on the long, harmonious finish. Drink now through 2004. 5,000 cases made.
