St.-Julien 2000

$30

Bordeaux lovers have an embarrassment of riches in the 2000 vintage. The Lagrange is extremely well-done, beautifully aromatic, with coffee, cedar and blackberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral, blackberry aftertaste with mediu —James Suckling

GRANS-FASSIAN

Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Trittenheimer 2001

$17

Terrific kabinett. Fine aromas and flavors of lime, vanilla pastry and minerals penetrate the creamy texture. It's all balanced by vibrant acidity, ending in a long cascade of lime and stone. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

MEULENHOF

Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Erdener Treppchen 2001

$16

Very dry in style for kabinett, with more spice and slate notes than fruit. There's a creamy texture overlying a racy structure; this needs some time to open up and strut its stuff. Drink now through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson
