What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: When It Rains It 'Flors'

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Long time, no Sherry! That's what I was thinking to myself as I sipped one of my last bottles of Equipo Navazos Manzanilla en Rama "I Think" recently. Well, when it rains, it flors (this pun's for you, Majeski!). We have a few new faces in the section, not to mention a host of new sherries due to arrive later next week from a bodega that arguably boasts the most diverse and impressive line-up of wines from the region. Of course I'm referring to Valdespino. More on those next week, just keep your eyes peeled.

For now though, in no particular order I have some wines which have recently arrived which may be of interest to some of you.

2012 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina - $19.99


2008 Domino do Bibei "Lalama" Ribeira Sacra - $29.99


2000 La Rioja Alta "904" Gran Reserva Rioja - $49.99

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.
