Saber Madness at K&L!

We have been chopping off the tops of Champagne bottles as fast as we can drink them- who needs a stopper when you are ready to commit to finishing the bottle! One of our favorites was this magnum ($84.99) of Franck Bonville Brut Rosé that Mellyn expertly decapitated on Christmas Eve. It also comes in regular 750ml ($39.99) and half bottles ($21.99). Olivier Bonville adds 8% Pinot Noir Rouge from Ambonnay superstar Paul Dethune to his top class assembelage of grand cru, estate Chardonnay to create this fabulous rose. This is one of the most elegant, bright, refreshing rose Champagnes that we carry, yet it does not lack red cherry Pinot Noir authority. We can’t get enough- bring another to the block!

Hollywood High Note

Who needs celebrities when you've got star-caliber wine? I was thrilled to check out the brand spanking new Hollywood K&L store on a visit to the southland last month, and things are sure looking dapper there. Besides a super friendly staff, the spot's got A-list wine, a swank tasting area just primed for fabulous in-house tastings and an unbeatable location in the heart of revitalized Hollywood. If you're down south permanently or on vaca, be sure to check the spot out. I've posted a few snaps from my visit here, including a look at the spot's interior (looks like the San Fran store but with a more contemporary urban loft feel), a shot of me with store manager Tom Martinez (down from Nor Cal) & helpful staffer Joel Nicholas, and some other gratuitous shots including more bubbly and myself alongside a gigantic bottle they've got on display there. Who doesn't love a wine store with gargantuan bottles and shopping carts full of bubbly sitting around?!! Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the July GRAND OPENING - sure to be a red carpet affair. --- Courtney Cochran, aka Your Personal Sommelier, provides personalized wine services to adventurous wine collectors, purveyors and enthusiasts, making wine accessible and fun for those who think outside the mainstream wine box.
