Saber Madness at K&L!

We have been chopping off the tops of Champagne bottles as fast as we can drink them- who needs a stopper when you are ready to commit to finishing the bottle! One of our favorites was this magnum ($84.99) of Franck Bonville Brut Rosé that Mellyn expertly decapitated on Christmas Eve. It also comes in regular 750ml ($39.99) and half bottles ($21.99). Olivier Bonville adds 8% Pinot Noir Rouge from Ambonnay superstar Paul Dethune to his top class assembelage of grand cru, estate Chardonnay to create this fabulous rose. This is one of the most elegant, bright, refreshing rose Champagnes that we carry, yet it does not lack red cherry Pinot Noir authority. We can’t get enough- bring another to the block!

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Special Pricing on Marquis de Laguiche Chassagne Morgeot

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

We just picked up a smoking deal on some terrific premier Cru Chassagne Montrachet, and I wanted to let you all know.  I personally love the energy, focus and masculine nature of the 2008s.

There are only a few cases available, it comes directly from the authorized importer, and it is IN STOCK AND ON THE WEB, so click on the link below or call us at 1-800-247-5987 to place an order.

2008 Domaine Marquis de Laguiche (Drouhin) Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru « Morgeot » (Previously $90) $69.95

92 points Wine Spectator

Though glycerol-like in texture, this is more angular in its approach, with vivid acidity driving the lime, baked apple, almond and mineral flavors. Offers fine intensity and length. Best from 2013 through 2022. 900 cases imported (6/ 2011)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outstanding! A subtle application of wood does not diminish the transparency of the resin, peach and white flower aromas that are nuanced by hints of spice and earth, both of which are also found on the rich, full-bodied and tautly muscled flavors that possess good mid-palate density, all wrapped in a moderately austere but lingering finish. This is really quite good and worth a look

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

($99) Ripe aromas of white flowers and white truffle. Boasts a bigger structure and more intensity than the village wines, with sound acidity giving a penetrating quality to the peach, apricot and crushed stone flavors. This is quite suave. (9/ 2010

A Santé,

-Keith
