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

Talking Bordeaux

 

When looking for Bordeaux recommendations it's nice to be able to speak with someone who understands both the wines and the vintages.  Unfortunately, getting Robert Parker on the phone isn't the easiest thing in the world to do.  Never fear, however, because our own resident expert Ralph Sands is on the phone every week from Tuesday through Saturday (except for when he's in Bordeaux), talking Bordeaux with all those seeking council.  On Saturday morning Ralph was in the tasting bar, prepping for a big customer tasting that afternoon.  Listen to his tips about purchasing pre-arrival value in the 2009 vintage and then peruse his list of selections below!
