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

K&L Holiday Gift Guide, Part 2

Here's the second half of K&L's Holiday Gift Guide. If you missed part one earlier this week, you can check it out here. And, as always, if you're looking for something in particular, or have a challenging person to shop for, you can live chat, call or dry by any of our stores for shopping help. We're here to make the season brighter (and tastier).

Macallan 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky ($119.99) Macallan 18 year is a modern classic. Often held up as the standard-bearer for Sherry cask single malt, the Macallan has become ubiquitous with exceptionalism in whisky. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46% exclusively from the 1992 vintage and earlier, you’ll never find the flagship Macallan 18 year old Single Malt at a better price.
