What We're Drinking

 

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

Tasting this Saturday May 10th!

The Champagne will be ready for you- come on over to K&L!

We just put the Champagne on ice that we will taste in all three retail locations, and I hope that you can join us. The theme will be highlights from the May Champagne newsletter, focusing on the most exciting wines from Scotty and I’s trip to Champagne last month. You can check out the newsletter here.  I hope that you can make it!

Scotty B will be pouring in San Francisco from noon until 3pm, I will pour in Redwood City from 1pm to 4pm, and Mari will pour in Hollywood from 3pm until 5:30pm. The cost will be $20, and it is a walk in event, so feel free to come anytime within the hours listed. Since I love to show Champagne from magnum, I will start with those in Redwood City for all the cuvees that we have in that size. Come early for the magnums in Redwood City!


We'll taste all these plus the 1999 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" NFB Brut Champagne!
