Mar. 25, 2002: CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE LAS CASES St.-Julien 1999 (94 points, $72)

The '99 Léoville Las Cases is a warm and exciting wine from a slightly frigid vintage. Black ruby in color. Rich and powerful on the nose, with loads of currant, smoke and tobacco. Full-bodied and silky, polished and long -- very pretty indeed. Best afte —James Suckling

Mar. 21, 2002: CHÂTEAU MARGAUX Margaux 1999 (92 points, $123)

Living up to its first-growth status, Margaux turned out a fine '99. It's a tight and silky red, with lots to offer -- currant, tobacco and cherry character, medium to full body, fine tannins and a long, long finish. Just needs time. Best after 2006. 16,6 —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

Mar. 16, 2002: CHÂTEAU LE PIN Pomerol 1999 (93 points, $467)

Wildly priced, Le Pin is nonetheless one of the top wines in the '99 vintage. Subtle and yummy, with lovely ripe plum character, hints of dried fruits and spices. Full-bodied, with soft and round tannins and a delicious, succulent finish. Best after 2005. —James Suckling

Mar. 14, 2002: CHÂTEAU GRUAUD-LAROSE St.-Julien 1999 (90 points, $33)

Well done. Good, dark color to this '99, with lots of plummy, berry and cassis bush character. It's medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2004. 21,500 cases made. Spectator Selection.
