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

San Francisco WhiskyFest 2009

K&L's David Driscoll pours Caol Ila and Highland Park at SF WhiskyFestWell, the biggest whisk(e)y event of the year has come and gone, and I'm completely exhausted.  I had a blast meeting everyone and pouring our delicious selections for the drinking public.  This being my first WhiskyFest, my strategy was simple: let every other vendor bring out their big guns, while I brought out affordable malts that every ticket holder could love and afford.  The consensus was simple - I asked most tasters what their favorite malt of the night was and they gave me the specifics on some 20+ year old relic that was being held back under the table of a specific vendor.  When I asked if they planned on buying a bottle of that delicious dram, 100% of those asked responded with "NO! Too expensive!"  I am happy to report that the K&L selections seemed to be the malts that everyone wanted to actually shell out their hard earned money for, and that makes me happy! Our $35 bargain bottle of Highland Park 8 year got rave reviews as did the 10 year Laphroig and the 8 year Caol Ila.  I didn't get to taste the whole floor, but my whiskey of the night went to a single barrel cask strength bottle of Four Roses, which knocked my socks off.  I absolutely love what they are doing over there with Jim Rutledge and company.  Anyway, here are a few photos of the event.
