What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

Wine of the Week: 2000 Coufran, Haut-Médoc ($27.99)

Direct from the Chateau, perfectly aged and ready to drink! Enjoy the 2000 Coufran tonight (K&L Founder Clyde Beffa recommends it with prime rib roast) - in stock now for $27.99 at KLWines.com. 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.

Getting to Know: Elisabeth Schriber

What’s your position at K&L?

I’m the senior editor. Most of my time is spent updating notes, scores and reviews for all the wines, beers and spirits on KLWines.com. I’ve been at K&L for seven years.

What did you do before K&L?

I was an editor and copywriter, with perhaps the weakest gift for spelling of any writer before or since.
