What We're Drinking


Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

K&L Blog Gets a New Look

Over the past six months, we've made some changes here at Uncorked, including more frequent updates and regular features like Wine of the Week (also known as Wine Wednesday in the Twitterverse) and Food Pairing Fridays. Plus video interviews, news and much more. Now we've got a brand new look, too, that's easier to navigate and kind to the eye. We're working on getting some contests lined up for 2011, as well as more videos and more posts about the things you like most: value-priced wines and beer. Check it out and let us know what you think! 

Happy New Year!

The K&L Team
