Mar. 25, 2003: ROBERT WEIL Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Kiedrich Gräfenberg 2001 (96 points, $50)

More like auslese-level ripeness here, but what a beauty. Silky, seamless and superbly balanced, with its richness offset by mouthwatering acidity. So pure and graceful, the apricot, citrus and pineapple flavors melt in the mouth. It ends with a tangy, mi —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 19, 2003: CHÂTEAU LYNCH-BAGES Pauillac 2000 (96 points, $110)

Gorgeous aromas of plums, blackberries and licorice, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with full, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Big and solid. Fantastic. If you love Lynch, buy this. Best after 2010. 35,000 cases made. Highly Recommended. —James Suckling

Mar. 13, 2003: CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE BARTON St.-Julien 2000 (97 points, $150)

Amazingly rich and silky. Lots of chocolate and blackberry aromas with hints of raspberries. Full-bodied, with silky, round tannins. Great concentration. Long, long finish. This is the biggest, most powerful ever from Léoville Barton. Best after 2012. H —James Suckling

Mar. 11, 2003: CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE LAS CASES St.-Julien 2000 (100 points, $170)

Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the most exciting young reds I have tasted in a long, long time. It shows intense aromas of berries, currants, and minerals, with hints of mint. Full-bodied and packed with fruit and tannins, its long finish is refined —James Suckling
