What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Clyde Recommends Holiday Wines, a Radio Show, and

I hope all of you have a healthy and happy holiday season and a fine 2006. Can you believe 2006 already? Everything from about 1960-2005 is a big blur. And the year 2006 will be K&L’s 30th Anniversary-time flies when you are having fun. Winewise, I have two gems to serve with your holiday meals-in fact they are good to enjoy all of the time. From Marlborough New Zealand, try the zippy refreshing 2004 Griffin Sauvignon Blanc ($10.99). Lip-smacking delicious! For a delicious Pinot, try the 2003 Kalinda Pinot Noir ($14.99) from Oregon. Bright, fruity, and lush. Two plugs: K&L is the wine shop featured on the radio show “A Matter of Taste” airing on Sundays on 910AM (KNEW) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. David and Rachel Kane have a great show. You should listen in! As for the book I enjoyed “50 Simple Ways to Live a Longer Life” by Suzanne Bohan and Glenn Thompson (two faithful K&L customers). Chapter 32 is my favorite: the health benefits of wine! Have a great 2005 ending and a fabulous 2006. —Clyde Beffa Jr
