May. 23, 2003: FANTI Brunello di Montalcino 1998 (95 points, $75)

Phenomenal for the vintage. Dark colored and superconcentrated. Aromas of roses, cherries, minerals and spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a superrich, long finish. Better than the 1997, which received 93 points. Best after 2004. 2,330 cases ma —James Suckling

May. 12, 2003: KRUG Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Clos du Mesnil 1990 (97 points, $370)

Always one to hold its flagship wine back until ready, Krug has turned out another classic Clos du Mesnil. The '90 offers a seductive mosaic of biscuit, honey and walnut oil leading to baking bread and citrus in this masculine, youthful Champagne. Very ti —Bruce Sanderson
