Jul. 16, 2003: KISTLER Chardonnay Carneros Hyde Vineyard 2000 (95 points, $60)

Here's a classic California Chardonnay from one of the region's acclaimed producers. Ultrarich, almost syrupy, with a gorgeous core of ripe, buttery pear, honey, pineapple and citrus flavors that are amazingly well-focused. Finishes with a tight beam of f —James Laube

Jul. 12, 2003: DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Silex 2001 (94 points, $60)
