May. 11, 2000: JEAN-MARC BOILLOT Bâtard-Montrachet 1998 (97 points, $195)

Amazing mouthfeel to this ultrarich and supersilky white Burgundy. Full-bodied, it displays loads of personality, with floral, dried apricot, perfume, late-harvestlike notes, and the texture is to die for as this balanced beauty curls around the palate an —Per-Henrik Mansson

Apr. 26, 2000: FRANÇOIS RAVENEAU Chablis Valmur 1997 (96 points, $95)

This could be the wine of the '97 vintage in Chablis. A seamless work of art, simply mind-boggling in its sheer balance. Medium- to full-bodied, it drapes a curtain of silk on the palate. Lovely fruit, earth and mineral, too, but it's the texture that is —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 24, 2000: LANDMARK Chardonnay Sonoma-Santa Barbara-Monterey Counties Damaris Reserve 2000 (92 points, $32)

Very ripe and rich, this multicounty-sourced California Chardonnay reserve wakes up the taste buds with its layers of fig, tangerine, cedary oak and spice, culminating in a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2004. 2,500 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 22, 2000: RUST EN VREDE Stellenbosch (92 points, $32)

This red makes a statement. Fresh, bold and extravagantly oaked, exuding vanilla, coffee and toast elements, backed by a core of rich, concentrated plum and black currant. Lovely acidity keeps it all lively, and the long finish bodes well for the future. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 20, 2000: BRICK HOUSE Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Les Dijonnais (94 points, $38)

This wine is deep, dense, rich and concentrated. Powerful aromas of blackberry, raspberry, currant and plum melt into a supple, beautifully structured mouthfeel that lasts and lasts. Seductive now, but just wait. Best from 2001 through 2010. 220 cases mad —Harvey Steiman
