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's Beer News: Killer Tasting Next Friday 4/27 in Redwood City!

By: Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey Everyone,

Just a simple early reminder about next week’s Friday Night Beer Tasting. So, mark your calendars, Friday, April 27th from 5-6:30 in the Redwood City Tasting Bar. The line-up is looking good so far with possibilities including beers from The Bruery, Jester King, Almanac, Ballast Point and many others. Also I’m hoping to open up some really wild German vinegars made with beer and mead. Fun stuff! I’ll post the full line-up early next week on our site and shoot it out to all of you as well.

Cheers,

Bryan Brick
