What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Old & Rare Burgs, Direct from Beaune - Extremely Limited Availability! 

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

I am excited to report that we just landed some old Burgundies, direct from Beaune.  These came from two cellars.  The Bruno Clair wines are all from a natural cellar.  As you might expect, the labels are in less than pristine condition (to say the least).  But the condition, color and fills are spectacularly good.  The Anne Gros and Drouhin wines came from a more modern cellar, which was cleaner and drier, so not only are the fills terrific, the labels are clean and bright.

Either way, we are excited to find these wines, which have been resting quietly where they were born, until they found their way to us via refrigerated container.  They are now in our 55 degree storage room.  Quantities are tiny, and these wines are ON THE WEB, and live inventory.  Therefore, they are up for grabs and I wanted you to be the first to know.

Call us at 800-247-5987 to order, go to www.klwines.com

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Anne Gros on Offer

Directeur Commercial Bourgogne

Contact: Keithw@klwines.com

 

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

We have tiny quantities of Anne Gros’ beautiful 2009s to offer. These are in-stock and ON THE WEB, so they are likely to go quickly:

2009 Domaine Anne Gros Hautes Côtes de Nuits Blanc "Cuvée Marine"  Price: $29.99

Allen Meadows writes: "A mildly leesy nose leads to delicious, rich and round flavors that possess reasonably good cut and an attractive mineral note on the moderately long finish" (Burghound 01/11) 


2009 Domaine Anne Gros Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits Rouge Price: $31.99

Steve Tanzer writes: "Medium red. Liqueur-like ripeness to the red cherry and rose aromas. Then juicy and fruity in the mouth, with intriguing notes of spices, flower and espresso. Finishes with an oily richness but also a hint of dryness and plenty of stony character. (I preferred this to the Bourgogne , which was peppery and less ripe.)" 


2009 Domaine Anne Gros Bourgogne Rouge Price: $31.99

Allen Meadows writes: "A discreet touch of wood sets off riper aromas of red berries and ample earth influence that can also be found on the round, supple and attractively rich flavors that possess much better mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a generous if not especially well detailed finish. This will benefit from a year or three in bottle but it's rich enough to be drunk now." (Burghound, 01/11) 


2009 Domaine Anne Gros Chambolle-Musigny "La Combe d'Orveau" Price: $76.99 Limit of 3 per customer

Allen Meadows writes: "A pretty and fresh nose of both red and blue pinot fruit, spice hints and a touch of wood toast leads to delicious and quite supple and forward flavors that evidence an attractive mineral streak on the delicious if not overly complex finish. This is appealing in its fashion." (Burghound, 01/11) 


2009 Domaine Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru "Le Grand Maupertuis"  Price: $169.95 Limit of 2 per customer

Allen Meadows writes: "Noticeable wood fights a bit with the otherwise solidly complex and earthy red berry fruit nose that precedes supple, round and very generous medium-bodied flavors that are remarkably sweet and while the mid-palate is accessible, this manages to be a bit firmer than the Echézeaux. That said, in the context of the overall appellation's performance in 2009, this too is relatively soft." (Burghound, 01/11) 


2009 Domaine Anne Gros Richebourg Grand Cru   Price: $375.00 Limit of 1 per customer

90-93 Points Allen Meadows: "Here too there is noticeable wood influence but here the spicy nose of red currants, blue berries and cassis is cooler and more restrained. There is fine intensity to the mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are both tighter and finer than those of the Clos de Vougeot, not to mention more serious and longer with notably less of the overt sweetness. This should be at least very good to possibly excellent." (Burghound, 05/11) 93 Points Tanzer: "Good deep red. Superripe nose nonetheless offers pungent notes of black raspberr... Read More »
