What We're Drinking

 

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

Keith's Burgundy Hotline: Paul Pernot Wines are HERE

By: Keith Wollenberg | K&L Burgundy Buyer

Hello Burgundy Lovers,

I wanted to let you know our ship has come in, and the 2011 Paul Pernot wines were on board.  As always, supplies are limited, particularly of the top wines.

These wines are in-stock, and are available on the web at http://www.klwines.com or by calling 800-247-5987.

 

The Wines:

 

2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Bourgogne Chardonnay $19.99

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Bourgogne Chardonnay is bright, floral and nicely focused. This is a tasty, uncomplicated Bourgogne that captures the personality of the year." (8/2012)   


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Puligny-Montrachet $44.99

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow-green. Lively aromas of stone and citrus fruits, spearmint and menthol. Then fat, sweet and lush in the mouth, with flavors of lemon and fresh mint showing the bright side of the vintage. Very good balance and length here, and very Puligny." (9/2012)  88 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pernot’s 2011 Puligny-Montrachet is nicely focused. Medium in body, the Puligny offers up pretty white stone fruits and flowers, showing the brighter side of the vintage. This is another tasty, straightforward offering with good length, but limited elegance. The Puligny is made from a blend of p  ... Read More » 

 


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Meursault Blagny 1er Cru "La Piece Sous le Bois" : $59.95 Limit of 6 per customer

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-green. Aromas of lemon, lime, crushed stone, nutmeg and wild herbs. In a distinctly juicy, cooler, Puligny style, with good cut but a slight bitter edge to the flavors of menthol, minerals and spices. Finishes with a peppery, crushed stone firmness. A very rocky wine, from a site with very thin soil" (9/2012)  89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Meursault Blagny La Piece Sous Le Bois shows good depth and body in a soft, caressing expression of Meursault. White flowers, flint and pears are layered into the vibrant finish. Anticipated maturity" (8/2012)   


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Folatières"  $79.99 Limit of 6 per customer

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright greenish yellow. Aromas of buttery peach, citrus fruit, white flowers and noble herbs. Dense, sweet and lively, offering an enticing sugar/acid balance and lovely perfumed lift. Not as exuberant as usual for this cuvee at this stage but its harmonious acidity and underlying minerality lend grip to the finish and extend the wine's brisk flavors." (9/2012)  91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Folatieres boasts gorgeous balance between the richness of the fruit and mineral notes. Crystalline notes appear on the mid-palate, adding brightness and focus. The fi  ... Read More » 


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Pucelles" : $99.95 Limit of 6 per customer

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pernot’s 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles is another of the more up-front wines in this lineup. It possesses excellent depth and plenty of richness, with layers of fruit that blossom through to the soft, layered finish. In 2011, the Pucelles is all about fruit, and there is no shortage of that here. This is a very representative wine for the year." (8/2012)  90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright green-tinged yellow. Musky, ripe aromas of snap pea, smoked meat and clove, complicated by a leesy nuance. Rich, ripe and opulent for the vintage, with silky stone fruit flavors framed on t  ... Read More » 


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Bienvenues Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru  $159.95 Limit of 3 per customer

90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Sweet peach, lemon, yellow flowers, mint and noble herbs on the nose, complicated by notes of hazelnut and basil. Dense and ripe but less pliant than the Pucelles, displaying good cut to the lemon, lime and floral flavors. Finishes firmer and longer than the Pucelles but less opulent today" (9/2012)  90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the more extroverted wines in the lineup, the 2011 Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet boasts considerable depth and harmony. Citrus, white flowers, floral-infused honey and chamomile take shape in the glass. This is a decidedly understated, fem  ... Read More » 


2011 Domaine Paul Pernot Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru  $189.95 Limit of 3 per customer

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow with green highlights. Deep aromas of fresh apricot, crushed stone and clove. Dense, deeply pitched and soil-driven, with a distinctly saline aspect to the flavors of spices, menthol and flowers. Impressively concentrated for the vintage but quite closed today. The saline quality carries through onto the serious, slowly mounting finish. Pernot notes that his Batard vines are on the Chassagne side of the vineyard, and thus this wine is very different in style from his Bienvenue, which is on the Puligny side." (9/2012)  91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Batard-Mont  ... Read More »
