What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

Update from Bordeaux: April 4th, Morning & Lunch

Met Jean Michel Cazes and Sylvie Cazes at Lynch Bages at 7:45 am and went to their new bistro "Lavinal" in the village of Bages (which the Cazes family owns. In fact, they own the town and are fixing it up to accomodate guests and locals alike). Lavinal is a great looking place-like Paris bistro. It has been open one week-and they have a cooking school above the bistro. To Cos d'Estournel for lunch-with Fieuzal Blanc 1992 with the fine lotte (monkfish) main course and 1982 Cos with the cheese. Also had dessert of berries in a light sauce (aka fruit cocktail sauce) and a bit of discussion about the trade in Bordeaux and the role of the negociant and courtier in modern Bordeaux wine sales. Off to Pichon-Lanade and Latour... Easy day so far! -Clyde Beffa
