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

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Señorio P. Peciña Rioja

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Estimados Clientes:

Hi there.  Apologies for the formal Spanish intro, this is more or less how I begin my emails to folks whose wineries I am looking to check out in Spain.  I've been doing a lot of this over the past month and a half or so, as the annual spring product sourcing mission to Spain is fast approaching.

So, what are we selling this week?  Peciña Rioja

There are few wineries - year in, year out - whose entire range of production you know will be consistently delicious. Peciña is amongst the few. I think it's fairly telling that, should you ever visit Pedro Peciña Crespo, there will likely be a leg of Joselito Jamón Ibérico on offer (there are different producers of Spain's most famous food export, of which Joselito is widely regarded as the best).  Pedro trades Peciña wines for Joselito's delicious Ibérico. They're buddies, and while I do not know Joselito, I can only imagine that there is a mutual admiration of each other's products which unites them.

Please browse our entire Peciña inventory online (search 'Pecina')- there's everything from sumptuous Gran Reservas, to 12 year old magnums of Crianza, a Reserva from the banner 2001 vintage, etc. 

For this email, though, I'd like to focus on their most humble, though arguably the most transparent and expressive, of their wines.  It's consistently the best unoaked tempranillo from Rioja we carry.  A real treat which shows the quality of the terroir and of the wines casa Peciña.

2010 Señorío de P.Peciña Joven Rioja - $13.99
