Jan. 08, 2001: CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE POYFERRÉ St.-Julien (91 points, $32)

Despite a rainy harvest on the Left Bank in '98, this second-growth turned in an outstanding performance. Well done. Aromas of black truffles and ripe fruit introduce a full-bodied wine with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. A mouthful. Amazing for the v —James Suckling

Dec. 29, 2000: CHÂTEAU SMITH-HAUT-LAFITTE Pessac-Léognan (94 points, $36)

Another of the outstanding Pessac wines in '98 is the Smith-Haut-Lafitte. This young Bordeaux shows intense aromas of wet earth, stone and berries. It's full-bodied, with super-well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Very well made indeed, and mu —James Suckling
