Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

{Terra Ignota} Exploring The Diversity Of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 

In honor of this years International Sauvignon Blanc Day (June 16th) we hosted a fantastic seminar here at K&L to highlight the huge array of styles and regional diversity of New Zealand Savvy. We were delighted to welcome Master of Wine Bob Campbell to the Redwood City store to talk about the wines and NZ wine as a whole. Bob, who is from New Zealand, is perhaps the foremost authority on the country's wines with decades of experience tasting, judging, and writing about them.

The lineup was chosen to represent both the diversity of styles being produced in NZ, as well as the distinct regional and even sub-regional flavor profiles you can find within a category so often unfairly stereotyped as “Gooseberry / grassy / herbal / jalapeno” in character.

Mature Champagne direct from Moet

The 1995 Moet Grand Vintage made a great aperitif, and partner to paddlefish caviar!

In the world of fine wine, there is no substitute for time. Very few of the great wines of the world are ever released fully mature, from the cellars where they were created- normally it is up to the wine lover to buy the greats young and store them ourselves. We are very lucky that with Champagne, we occasionally get an opportunity to procure bottles that have been aged for us, and the 1995 Moët & Chandon "Grand Vintage" Brut Champagne ($139) is just such an opportunity. It has come directly from the Moet caves in Epernay to us, and just arrived at K&L. This wine is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir and 10% Meunier and was disgorged in November of 2007 after more than 11 years on the lees. With more than a few extra years to rest on its cork, this wine is now completely ready to go, and should last very easily until 2025.
