What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Bordeaux Tastings Saturday at All K&L Locations

Whatever your plans are for the weekend, make sure you set aside enough time to attend the Bordeaux tasting at the K&L store nearest you. Our Bordeaux team has been working diligently to put together a list of wines to taste that will appeal to Bordeaux afficiandoes, and be a great jumping off point to those looking to explore the region. And, because we're between vintages, you'll have the opportunity to taste wines from as far back as the 1962 vintage (if you're in Redwood City). Aged Bordeaux is where it's at, so if you've never gotten the chance to taste something other than the current release, this is a tasting series you won't want to miss. For more information on K&L in-store tasting and special events, visit our Local Events page or call your local store.
