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: Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake ($15.99)

It's Sake Time! Taste our pick of the week - the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake - and Melissa's other favorites this Friday 7/8 at K&L RWC!  Details

Pick up a bottle of this irresistable Sake for your next sushi or creative food pairing endeavor. In stock NOW at KLWines.com!Looking for something different to pair with your next experiment in molecular gastronomy? Our Sake buyer (and professional chef) Melissa Smith swears by the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake (330ml $15.99), a new arrival to our expanding Sake collection. One of her favorite sparkling sakes, this little bottle of joy is made from Gohyaku-Mangoku Rice by the Suehiro Sake Brewery in Fukushima.  It is drier than most other sakes, but has a hint of sweetness, making it better suited to more adventurous food pairings than regular sparkling wines.  "Its got the honeydew notes and the yogurty flavor that I commonly associate with these sparkling sakes," writes Melissa, "a great light body, and fine bubbles. I am VERY excited about this sake (and love saying the name)!"

And we have to admit, the label is pretty cute, too.
