Nov. 23, 2000: CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1999 (94 points, $34)

A wonderful, masterful wine. Both firm and opulent, it displays a nice dig into the Rhône terroir as it brings out wet earth, mineral and an interesting, chewy tannin structure. A high-voltage drinking experience, with lots of fruit, spice and moc —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 22, 2000: PAUL JABOULET AÎNÉ Hermitage La Chapelle (96 points, $105)

Here's a classic Syrah from a Rhône winery with a long track record for excellence. The '98 La Chapelle is a great red wine. Full-bodied, with crushed berry, smoke and grilled aromas -- all presented quite subtly. Stands out for its natural, down-to-eart —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 20, 2000: CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blanc des Millénaires (95 points, $70)

Just released, this may be a tough find, but it's a classic Champagne that's worth the search. Still incredibly youthful, this bubbly exhibits a cornucopia of flavors -- quince preserve, freshly cut grass, fresh mushroom and baking bread--all displayed on —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 17, 2000: PRUNOTTO Barbaresco Bric Turot (93 points, $40)

A muscular Piedmont red, very, very ripe, almost raisiny, with coffee and tobacco character. It's full-bodied, very thick and chewy, mouthpuckering. Give this big wine time. Best after 2005. 1,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Nov. 16, 2000: MOCCAGATTA Barbaresco Basarin (95 points, $45)

A big, burly Barbaresco, this red is built for aging. It's extremely ripe, with prune, plum and floral aromas, and is full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Give it time. Best after 2005. 450 cases made. —James Suckling
