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

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
