What We're Drinking

 

Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Ardbeg & OC Choppers at K&L Hollywood

Thursday, September 23rd from 4-7 p.m. It's Ardbeg Chopper Night at K&L Hollywood!  

Whoever said Whisky and motorcycles don't go together?  Well, normally they don't (at least not at the same time), but for once they do!  If you haven't heard already, OC Choppers (from the hit show American Chopper) and Ardbeg Distillery have teamed up to create two totally unique "choppers," to commemorate the successful rebirth of one of Port Ellen's finest distilleries.  The bikes will be on display as part of a national tour at K&L Hollywood on Thursday, September 23rd from 4-7 p.m.  All who attend will receive special pricing on any of the Ardbeg bottlings (up to 10% off).  I'm talking Ardbeg 10 year, Ardbeg Uigeadail, Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist and even the limited-release Ardbeg Corryvreckan--while supplies last.  The event is totally free, so just show up, check out the bikes and benefit from this deal on top of our already excellent prices. There’s no better time to stock up on this peaty gem.  Please take advantage of this one-day opportunity.
