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

What Did You Drink This Weekend?

Green Flash/St. Feuillien "Bière De L’Amitié" Collaboration Ale after a long day's labor on our new house.Hard labor and beer go together like sun and sand, so it's no surprise that after a long weekend tearing out sheetrock, ripping up carpets, sanding and painting at my new house, my husband, father-in-law and I were ready for a cold brew. We thoroughly enjoyed a bottle of the Green Flash/St. Feuillien collabortation "Bière De L’Amitié," which translates to mean "Friendship Beer." This Rye and Wheat-based beer had an earthy quality, with lots of bright citris, coriander and cardamom spice. It had just a splash of the lactic quality I love in Belgian beers, and a refreshing, clean finish that washed away the day's rougher edges and sent us of to dreamland easily and quickly.
