What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News 2/3/12: Tondonia for $20?

By: Joe Manekin

K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Greetings all,  

While we are not selling Lopez de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva for $20 (though, curiously, a colleague mentioned that Maria José Lopez de Heredia was recently interviewed on NPR) we are selling another classic, single vineyard wine made from a vineyard literally one Rio Ebro stone's throw over: Viña Pomal.  

Bodegas Bilbainas has been producing the Viña Pomal Reserva since 1932.  It is all Tempranillo from a beautiful calcareous clay vineyard site in Haro.  It's aged 18 months in American oak, and then another 18 months in bottle (though at this point both wines below have obviously aged considerably longer).  Both of these are from terrific vintages in 2004 and 2005, and would make for a delicious accompaniment to any of your favorite winter stews and braises.  They are wines with great material, rich fruit, well integrated spicy barrel notes, balanced acidity, earthy savor and an unmistakable Rioja Alta minerality.  These wines are also known to age well- I will be grabbing some of each to experiment.  

2005 Bodegas Bilbainas Viña Pomal Reserva Rioja - $19.99  

2004 Bodegas Bilbainas Viña Pomal Reserva Rioja - $19.99
