What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

Wine refrigerators certainly keep wines cold, but tend to have temperature swings as much as 15 degrees as the cooling system kicks on and off. Since proper cellaring requires steady temps, this doesn’t work for long-term aging.

Wine 101: Wine Storage

I don't own a lot of wine, especially when compared to some of my colleagues. And what I do own isn't particularly expensive--the average bottle in my "collection" costs between $12-$15. But after a couple of prematurely popped corks and bottles seeping in the sweltering second-floor, unairconditoned Hollywood apartment I used to call home, addressing my wine storage situation became unavoidable.
