What We're Drinking




We have a little cult here at K&L of steak and claret on Friday nights. If you drop by the store near closing, you will no doubt over hear many of us discussing cuts of beef, potato preperations and the Bordeaux to pair with the beef. One of our favorites for current drinking is the 1999 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc ($49.99) which is drinking perfectly at 16 years old. The composition is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This is a plummy wine from the high percentage of Merlot and I loved the minty focus on the back end. This is long finishing stuff, and has the good acid on the back cut the richness of a big steak. What a treat!

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
