What We're Drinking

 

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

Friday Night Tastings at K&L Redwood City

Above: Mike Dunn pours a vertical of Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon to K&L customers in the Redwood City tasting bar.

Folks in the know keep their calendars open every Friday from 5-6:30 p.m. when K&L Redwood City opens its tasting bar to the public. These tastings are fun, casual events geared towards introducing customers to our favorite winemakers and importers from around the world.  

The cost to taste? Typically $10 or less.

The opportunity to hear Randall Graham (of Bonny Doon fame) recite poetry from his Vinthology "Been Doon So Long" while sipping on biodynamic Albariño, to fall in love with Nebbiolo all over again thanks to the wit, charm (and excellent Italian wine imports) of Oliver McCrum, to taste why it's worth waiting for that Dunn Cab to come around, or to develop a new appreciation for Chilean Carmenere with the master Mauro Von Siebenthal himself?

Priceless.
