Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Thanksgiving 2010: Make Your Own Rules

Photo by Mikkel Vang for *Real Simple Magazine*

We try to hide it, but even the best of us foodie folk squirm with anxiety at the prospect of Thanksgiving dinner.  All those competing ingredients piled together on a single plate! There's no hope for a wine - any wine - to resonate.  In past years I have been known to shut off completely and focus on other projects like reorganizing the glassware cabinet, sorting through old photos, and cleaning out the area under the bathroom sink just to distract myself from the somber task of sentencing a wine to Thanksgiving.

Getting to Know: Jeremy Bohrer

What’s your position at K&L and how long have you been with the company?

I’ve been with K&L since the Hollywood store opened almost four years ago. Wow, has it been that long? Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess. My position? Usually standing, but sometimes I sit for a bit. Mostly I just sell booze.
