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

Brick on Beer: Two Big Beers and a Lot of Small Ones

By Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey All,

So yeah, Firestone Walker "XV" Anniversary Ale, California 22oz (1 bottle limit per customer) $22.99 just walked in the door and I believe it will probably walkout just as quickly. Better get your order in now, I have no idea if we will get as much as we had of the XIV at this point, but my feelings are that we probably will not.

Also we just received a nice sized shipment of The Bruery "Four Calling Birds" Belgian Style Dark Strong Ale, California 750ml (3 bottle limit per customer) $11.99, so nicely sized in fact that I’ve upped the allocation per customer from 1 bottle to 3 bottles. Let’s consider this my Christmas present to you!
