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!

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Anne Gros on Offer

Keith Wollenberg

Directeur Commercial Bourgogne



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 »

Wine Wednesday: Restoring Sanity

Saturday, October 30th marks the first-ever Rally to Restore Sanity, an anti-rhetoric, anti-belligerence attempt by comedians John Stewart and Stephen Colbert to make our political discourse a little less volatile. 

What does this have to do with wine, you ask?

We believe that good wine should be affordable to everyone, which is why we go out of our way to make sure we offer great values from all over the world. Sure, we love Cru Burgundy and Classified Growth Bordeaux as much as the next guy, but we can't afford to drink them often either.

Getting to Know: Jeremy Bohrer

What’s your position at K&L and how long have you been with the company?

I’ve been with K&L since the Hollywood store opened almost four years ago. Wow, has it been that long? Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess. My position? Usually standing, but sometimes I sit for a bit. Mostly I just sell booze.
