Mar. 28, 2002: CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD Pauillac 1999 (95 points, $123)

This first-growth is the wine of the vintage in '99. Complex aromas of blackberries, tobacco, spices and black licorice are alluring in this full-bodied claret, with a solid core of fruit and silky tannins. Long, caressing finish. Superfine, well-structur —James Suckling

Mar. 19, 2002: CHÂTEAU MONTROSE St.-Estèphe 1999 (90 points, $33)

On the heels of its classic '96, Montrose turned out another fine performance in '99. Very fine indeed, offering complex aromas of berries, grilled meat and tobacco, with racy tannins and a long finish. Medium-to full-bodied. Better than from barrel. Soli —James Suckling
