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

NZSB Value For White Drinkers

2011 Sherwood Estate Stratum Sauvignon Blanc $9.99 - This is a great example of top value Marlborough SB. This is a hand made wine produced by the fully accredited sustainable Sherwood Estate Winery. The fruit is sourced from all estate vineyards, (Rowley Crescent, Sandy Creek and Stoney Range vineyards) that are situated at either end of Rapaura Road in heart of Marlborough. Nighttime picking and immediate whole cluster pressing keeps the juice fresh and vibrant, two characteristics that describe the finished wine perfectly. Some 3 months of lees contact add a hint of mid palate weight to the wine which gives a nice textural finesse not found in many wines in this price point. A sub $10 Marlborough SB that is hand made not factory produced, give some a try you won’t regret it!
