Dec. 01, 2000: DOMAINE DU VIEUX TÉLÉGRAPHE Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau (93 points, $37)

Châteauneuf had a tremendous vintage in '98, and its wines offer great value in the face of rising Bordeaux and California prices. The '98 Vieux Télé is reserved aromatically, but the wonderful balance is evident as this young Rhône red reveals its mi —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 28, 2000: MARCARINI Barolo Brunate (95 points, $46)

Already tight as a drum, but glorious aromas of flowers, berries and cherries gradually come forth. Full-bodied and very tannic, yet with loads of fruit and fresh acidity. Don't touch this monster for awhile. Best after 2006. 2,380 cases made. —James Suckling

Nov. 25, 2000: CAYMUS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Selection 1999 (95 points, $136)

Here's a classic California Cabernet, a late release from the tremendous '97 vintage. The '97 Special Selection is smooth, rich and concentrated, with layers of currant, mocha, black cherry and wild berry, fairly gushing at midpalate. The finish is long, —James Laube

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
