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

Wine of the Week: 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (1L) $10.99

Pick up a bottle of the 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (only $10.99 for a liter!) for your next garden party. In stock now at K&L Q: What has the snap of Sauvignon Blanc, the fleshiness of Chardonnay, and is guaranteed to please lovers of both while perfectly complementing the season's fresh green beans, peas, and peppers?

A: 2010 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (1L) ($10.99)

Unoaked and sealed with a crown-cap, the 2010 Allram Gruner Veltliner (a K&L Direct Import) comes in a liter-sized bottle and is about as lively, fun, and fresh as the popular Austrian white wine can get.  The nose is textbook Gruner: filled with spice and white pepper, snap pea and grapefruit. It is sleek, focused and juicy owing to the wonderful bright acid structure of the vintage. 4th generation winemaker Michaela Haas, along with her husband Erich, took control of the family's 15 hectare estate in 1992 and today produce wines wines from some of the top sites in the Kamptal.

"The Allram Gruner is exactly the kind of wine I look forward to drinking over the summer. Bright and refreshing, this wine has a hint of spice, a crisp mouth feel and a brilliant clean finish. Pair with light summer dishes, or Asian inspired cuisine, or just a Tuesday night." -Kyle Kurani, K&L Staff Member (7/22/2011)
