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

Hope for Japan

As if a devastating 9.0 earthquake wasn't enough. The subsequent tsunamis and now potential nuclear disaster in Japan should make us all grateful for the relative security with which we all live. People in Japan are without clean water, food or shelter. But there is hope. And that hope springs from the millions and millions of people around the world doing whatever they can to assist relief efforts. Rather than tantalzing you with some food and wine pairing, or encouraging you to buy a bottle of this or that, I ask that you take the $10 you would might have spent on wine today (or a pint at your local pub, or a latte, whatever) and to donate it to one of the many organizations that are working diligently to help the survivors in Japan. From the Red Cross to Shelterbox to WANDAA, there are a wide variety of groups helping in the relieft effort. Check out Crowdrise.com to find a project you support, or create your own. Together we can all bring a little hope to Japan.
