What We're Drinking




We have a little cult here at K&L of steak and claret on Friday nights. If you drop by the store near closing, you will no doubt over hear many of us discussing cuts of beef, potato preperations and the Bordeaux to pair with the beef. One of our favorites for current drinking is the 1999 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc ($49.99) which is drinking perfectly at 16 years old. The composition is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This is a plummy wine from the high percentage of Merlot and I loved the minty focus on the back end. This is long finishing stuff, and has the good acid on the back cut the richness of a big steak. What a treat!

Jacquesson Single Vineyard Champagne

We just recieved our tiny allocation of the Jacquesson Single Vineyard Champagnes, and they will go very quickly. These wines are tiny production, and very hard to find.

The three single vineyard offerings from Jacquesson

I haven't had a a chance to taste these rarities myself- and I doubt that I will. That being said, the classic, focussed style of the 2004 vintage suits the precision work of this ancient house perfectly, and these will be great, great wines for those with a good cellar and patience. Act quickly!
