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.

Wine of the Week: Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake ($15.99)

It's Sake Time! Taste our pick of the week - the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake - and Melissa's other favorites this Friday 7/8 at K&L RWC!  Details

Pick up a bottle of this irresistable Sake for your next sushi or creative food pairing endeavor. In stock NOW at KLWines.com!Looking for something different to pair with your next experiment in molecular gastronomy? Our Sake buyer (and professional chef) Melissa Smith swears by the Poochi Poochi Sparkling Sake (330ml $15.99), a new arrival to our expanding Sake collection. One of her favorite sparkling sakes, this little bottle of joy is made from Gohyaku-Mangoku Rice by the Suehiro Sake Brewery in Fukushima.  It is drier than most other sakes, but has a hint of sweetness, making it better suited to more adventurous food pairings than regular sparkling wines.  "Its got the honeydew notes and the yogurty flavor that I commonly associate with these sparkling sakes," writes Melissa, "a great light body, and fine bubbles. I am VERY excited about this sake (and love saying the name)!"

And we have to admit, the label is pretty cute, too.
