One thing we hear all the time at K&L is that Bordeaux has become too expensive. While it is true that the 30 or so top names have taken their prices to the moon, it is unfair to say that the whole regions prices are too high. This 11 year old bottle from one of the great modern vintages - 2000 Coufran, Haut-Médoc ($27.99) - is a fine example of extraordinary value in Bordeaux. It is polished, poised and very complete with loads of black fruit power, fine tannins and mineraly grip. It could be enjoyed tonight with a thick cut New York strip steak or laid down for another 10 years. - Gary Westby, K&L Staff Member, 09/13/2011
K&L's Gary Westby, loves his aged Claret! But above all, he loves value. His pet peeve? "Prestige" labels that under-deliver in the bottle. Go figure. From obscure, old & rare wines to local gems, if you are looking for the best deals in town, you are in good hands with Gary as your guide.
