Aug. 07, 2003: E. GUIGAL Côte-Rôtie La Turque 1999 (98 points, $275)

Guigal is best known for his three single-vineyard Côte-Rôties, sometimes called the "La La wines." The '99 La Turque is perfection in a glass. Like E.T., this extraterrestrial wine creates a commotion as it lands; on the palate, it delivers an abundanc —Per-Henrik Mansson

Aug. 05, 2003: E. GUIGAL Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2001 (93 points, $40)
