Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

I’m freshly back from Bordeaux and should be over my jet lag by Saturday, when we are hosting Bordeaux Tastings in all three stores, with yours truly in Redwood City from 1pm-4pm. The lineup and details are listed below, but first I would love to tell you about the 2012 vintage.

As of this morning we are offering the first wines from the 2012 vintage to be released on a futures/pre arrival basis, the wines will arrive in 2015.

Personally I am quite happy with the price reductions for these wine as they are down from the 2011 vintage and I like the charming vintage of 2012s more than 2011s.

 2012 Ch. Lynch Bages…$99.99

2012 Ch. Rausan-Segla…$59.99

2012 Ch. Mouton Rothschild…$379.99

My direct line for any questions on these wines or other wines from 2012 is below. Cheers!

Wine Wednesday: 1997 Langoa-Barton

There are a lot of reasons I like working for K&L, not the least of which is that I get to drink and write about wine for a living. But a close second to that is this: while our staff are a bunch of wine geeks, we're not snobs. Case in point is our Wine of the Week, the 1997 Langoa-Barton, which is selling for only $39.99.
