What We're Drinking

 

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

Join us this Saturday 6/29 for Pinot Days tastings at K&L Redwood City and San Francisco, and a special honorary Pinot Noir Tasting in Hollywood!

This Saturday June 29th it's all about Pinot Noir at K&L!

To kick off the annual Pinot Days San Francisco Festival taking place at Fort Mason in San Francisco Sunday June 30th, we're hosting special Pinot Days tastings in our Northern California locations and an honorary Pinot Noir tasting in Hollywood on Saturday.

During the three hour Pinot Days tasting at K&L SF and RWC, attendees will have the opportunity to taste wines from a selection of our favorite Pinot producers while rubbing elbows with the winery owners and winemakers who craft the wines. In addition, if you purchase $300 of four attending producers' Pinots from K&L, Pinot Days will provide you two complimentary tickets to the Grand Festival on Sunday (a $150 value!). Join us for this unique opportunity to taste and meet with winemakers in an intimate setting.
