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!

Wine of the Week: 2010 Adegas Cooperativos de Monção "Muralhas" Rosé Vinho Verde ($9.99)  

2010 Adegas Cooperativos de Moncao "Muralhas" Rosé Vinho Verde ($9.99)

When a Personal Sommelier customer emails me a picture of one of her recent personalized selections with the subject "AMAZING WINE!" and places an order for more, I get that warm and fuzzy feeling of a job well done.  

Of course, she's not the only one who has gone gaga over the 2010 Adegas Coopertivos de Monção "Muralhas" Vinho Verde Rosé ($9.99).  In our last rosé-themed staff tasting in Redwood City, this unabashadly pink, slightly fizzy rose from the Monção subregion of the Vinho Verde DOC in Northern Portugal, emerged as a clear favorite, eliciting comments from otherwise professional K&L staffers like "I wouldn't mind taking a bottle of this to the dome," "not too much wrong with that for $10!" and "this just makes me happy."

Made from a blend of traditional Portuguese grape varietals including Alvarelhao, Pedral and Vinhao, this rosé has a lovely vibrant pink color and enticing bouquet of sun-kissed raspberries and ripe melon. Racy acidity and a bit of spritz makes this slightly off-dry, fizzy wine finish clean and with the perception of dryness.

Pick up a bottle.  Served chilled, this lower alcohol (only 11% abv) and incredibly food-friendly rosé just might amaze you, too.
