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

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
