Saber Madness at K&L!

We have been chopping off the tops of Champagne bottles as fast as we can drink them- who needs a stopper when you are ready to commit to finishing the bottle! One of our favorites was this magnum ($84.99) of Franck Bonville Brut Rosé that Mellyn expertly decapitated on Christmas Eve. It also comes in regular 750ml ($39.99) and half bottles ($21.99). Olivier Bonville adds 8% Pinot Noir Rouge from Ambonnay superstar Paul Dethune to his top class assembelage of grand cru, estate Chardonnay to create this fabulous rose. This is one of the most elegant, bright, refreshing rose Champagnes that we carry, yet it does not lack red cherry Pinot Noir authority. We can’t get enough- bring another to the block!

Chalk Twins in the Tasting Bar Tonight

Tonights Line Up- Ready for you to come and taste!

Sherry and Champagne together in the tasting bar? It sounds like a strange combination, but the two wines have much in common, and tonight in Redwood City from 5pm-6:30pm Joe Manekin and I will be exploring those similarities. I hope you can join us, the cost is $10.

Both of these wines are born from chalk soil and are the products of extreme climates. Both are blended across time, with most of the wine from both areas coming from multiple harvests mixed together. Both are noble wines. Come and discover these together tonight:

Bruno Michel Premier Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Deliciosa" Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda $19.99
Launois "Veuve Clemence" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Rey Fernando de Castilla Fino Jerez $21.99
Amaury Coutelas "Cuvée Louis Victor" Brut Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Viejo CP" Palo Cortado Jerez $44.99
