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

Wine of the Week: 2008 Henry of Pelham Cabernet Franc Ice Wine ($29.99)

Dessert Accomplished! At a sweet low price, 2008 Henry of Pelham Cabernet Franc Ice Wine (200ml) (Previously $40) is in stock NOW on KLWines.com. 

Do you love dessert wines and are curious to try more exotic styles?  Join us from 5-6pm in RWC for Stickies: Unique Dessert Wines from Around the World or pick up a few bottles from the list below and stage a sticky tasting of your own at home!

Only in this part of Canada are conditions just right for the production of this oddball but very sumptuously delicious Cabernet Franc-based Ice Wine. The 2008 Henry of Pelham Cabernet Franc Ice Wine (200 ml $29.99) is intense by definition, with vibrant fruit aromas and flavors, exhibiting strawberry and raspberry above all others. Terrific with fruit based desserts and soft cheeses, it is also wonderful in sparkling wine for a new take on a Kir Royale.
