What We're Drinking

2000 Labégorce, Margaux $39.99

A great value in Bordeaux! This bottle is mature enough to drink now, but has time in hand if you want to keep it in the cellar for the future. We love it for its laid back elegance and classic balance. A must try for your next nice steak dinner.

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.

We LOVE our Steak & Claret!

Steak and Bordeaux is part of the weekly diet!

This is the 2nd time that a great bottle of Labegorce Margaux has inspired me to write a piece for the blog- last December I wrote about the now sold out 1991. I expect that I might be moved to write again when I crack the magnum of 1997 that I just bought as well! This old-school property in Margaux has history going back to the middle ages, with references as early as 1332 in the history books. In the original 1868 edition of the Cock’s & Feret catalog of Bordeaux it was described as one of the best situated and beautiful properties in the appellation.
