Jan. 18, 2001: CHÂTEAU LAFLEUR Pomerol (96 points, $200)

Albeit expensive and hard to find, this is a small-production Pomerol that rates classic in the '98 vintage. The '98 Lafleur is a superb red, with fascinating aromas of berry, chocolate, smoke and dried herb. Full-bodied, with incredibly well-integrated t —James Suckling

Jan. 12, 2001: CHÂTEAU PÉTRUS Pomerol (98 points, $550)

It's no surprise that Pétrus, the flagship château of the Mouiex family holdings, has turned in a stunner in the Pomerol-favored vintage of '98. Leaves me speechless; like gazing at a Canaletto painting. Has a high-toned nose, with violet, floral, berry —James Suckling
