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

Champagne Friday: Negroni Sbagliato

By: Gary Westby | K&L Champagne Buyer

As this is the first Friday of summer, I thought it would be the perfect time to share the recipe and for one of my favorite Champagne cocktails, the Negroni Sbagliato, or “Wrong Negroni”. I usually like to make Champagne cocktails with Champagne that has been sitting in the fridge with a stopper in it for a while, and I would encourage you to do the same. This drink is a little bit bitter, and an excellent aperitif.

Since the list of ingredients is very short (5 if you include the ice) the little details shown in today's videos are quite important in making it the best it can be.  I hope you will try it!

Here are the ingredients:

1 tall glass full of fresh ice

2 ounces red vermouth (I used Cocchi Vermouth Torino)

2 ounces Campari

3-4 ounces Champagne (I used J. Lassalle 1er Cru Brut Champagne)

1 Fresh Orange Twist

 

A toast to you,

-Gary

Boozy Confections

Dear Sprinkles,

This is the hardest letter I've had to write, so I'm just going to get straight to the point. After countless carrot, red velvet and coconut cupcakes I'm leaving you. You see, I'm in love. And this time my sweets are spiked.
