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

Newsletter Correction: Lo Auténtico

Editor's Note: In the next few days, the November 2010 edition of K&L's Wine News is going to show up in your mailbox. But Joe Mankekin's article is actually from November 2009. Go figure. Anyhow, Joe's sent us the following picks for THIS Thanksgiving that we thought you shouldn't miss. Of the wines mentioned in the newsletter, we actually have the new vintage of the Botani Moscatel and a couple of wines from Bodegas Juan Senor de Lesmos. And Joe has offered up fresh picks for this year below.

Lo Auténtico

Over the past few years, I have enjoyed experimenting with many different wines at the Thanksgiving table. As useful as this can be to figure out what works with Thanksgiving food, doesn’t it strike you as a wee bit tedious?  Well, it is.  Thanksgiving is a holiday best enjoyed by those with a hearty appetite for food and drink. Lining up a bunch of different wines and exploring all the possible wine pairings in front of you is a distraction from why we truly cherish this holiday: the abundance of good food and wine, appreciated with family and friends.
