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

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Ramonet!

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

We have just received our 2009 Domaine Ramonet wines, and as always with this fabled grower, supplies are limited, so they will not be around for long, so I wanted to let you all know.

2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Rouge $23.99


2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Aligoté $24.99


2009 Domaine Ramonet Bourgogne Blanc $29.99

Lovely and balanced Chardonnay from a master of the grape. This entry-level white Burgundy is an amazing value and it shows minerality, citrus fruit and rich length in equal measure. A distinct pleasure to purchase and to drink!

In addition, we have a tiny handful of bottles of the Grand Cru wines.  I cannot promise any of these, but please let me know by email if you are interested.
