Just add duck crepinettes!

Buying ready to drink 1er cru Burgundy is not easy. For a couple of years I did the Old and Rare wine buying here at K&L and found it easy to find California Cabernet and even Bordeaux from collectors. But Burgundy… Forget it. They had to die, get a divorce or have doctors orders to part with the king of all Pinot Noir! This bottle of 2007 Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Nuits St-Georges 1er cru Les Boudots ($99) comes direct from the property from our friends at Atherton, and like most of the 2007’s, drinks fabulously right now. This wine showed excellent sweet beet fruit, savory depth, and incredible finesse and length. The tannins are completely resolved, and went perfectly with duck crepinettes from the fatted calf in San Francisco. This is the kind of Burgundy that gets people hooked- you have been warned!!!! –Gary Westby

Hollywood, Here We Come, Finally!

Well after one year of bureaucratic delays, it looks like we should be opening our Hollywood store in a month or two. We are hoping for an October 15 or sooner opening, but we can’t predict that date yet. Check our website for more information. And the address, you ask?? How about Sunset and Vine? To be exact 1400 Vine Street just a block or so south of Sunset, directly across the street from the ArcLight Cinema. Plenty of parking and easy access from many great L.A. neighborhoods. We are very excited about this new store as are our managers, Chip Hammack and Tom Martinez. —Clyde Beffa Jr
