2011 Domaine Desertaux-Ferrand Bourgogne Aligoté
Review Date: 1-31-2013
This is the perfect spring wine, cool and snappy, just like a cold breeze on a sunny day. Cool yellow fruits spiked with citrus and is there a hint of mineral there? There is no need for Crème de Cassis with this.

2010 Luigi Giusti "Visciola" (500ml)
Review Date: 10-30-2012
This is one of the more unusual products that we carry, red wine that is co-fermented with wild cherries. This falls somewhere between a late harvest Zin and a port in the sweetness level, but for sheer pleasure and drinkability those other wines do not compare. This is a real treat.

2010 Montirius "Garrigues" Vacqueyras
Review Date: 9-29-2012
Everything and more that you would expect from a Vacqueyras. But then this is Montirius, you should expect that.

Jean-Louis Denois Brut "Tradition"
Review Date: 8-31-2012
Champagne in all but name? Aged 18 months on it lees, just like NV Champagne. Made by a wine maker trained in Champagne. Grapes grown, well not in Champagne but that's why we can sell it for $15! Toasty, nutty and dry with just a hint of red berries. Buy this buy the case and drink it every night.

Jean-Louis Denois Pinot Noir Brut Rosé
Review Date: 8-31-2012
This is always the first wine from Denois to disappear. Good mouse and great pinot flavor can you ask for more? Yes, and reasonably priced!

Michel Dervin Brut Champagne
Review Date: 6-29-2012
Blanc de Noirs for a song! Dried stone fruits, brioche on the nose and palate. Concentrated and very dry this is an under- valued over achieving wine.

Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (previously Cuvee Reserve)
Review Date: 11-29-2011
This has become my favorite bargain DI Champagne. Round on the palate with that exotic fruit that you get from Pinot Meunier. It is yeasty in a doughy/cookie way with just a touch of spice.

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 7-29-2011
This is the go to value Champagne here at K&L. Dry, toasty with subtle fruit notes. Everything you want from Champagne except for the price tag!

Casal Garcia Vinho Verde Rosé
Review Date: 7-29-2011
This is almost adult soda pop. Bright, fresh with a touch of effervescence and just a kiss of sweetness. This wine disappears like iced tea on a hot day!

Urbanite Cellars "Redart" Red Blend
Review Date: 7-19-2011
This is a great everyday red. The right balance of fruit, spice and acidity. This is a wine that everyone can enjoy.

Arran 10 year old Single Island Malt Whisky 750ml
Review Date: 3-29-2011
I often overlook this Single malt; it is easy to do when looking at our shelves, but after trying this recently, no more. This small independently owned distillery is new, just about 15 years old. Their entry level whisky should be in everyone’s liquor cabinet. Medium rich with a great blend of both Bourbon and Sherry barrels; this is a whisky with no edges. It as easygoing and comfortable as a broken-in lay-z-boy. Perfect for kicking back and forgetting about your day, it will not challenge you with its complexity but indulge you with caramel, crème Brule, heather and a touch of apple.

Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 2-28-2011
This is one of the best non-vintage bubbles we have. Complex and dry, this does not need a special occasion!

Antech "Brut Nature" Blanquette de Limoux
Review Date: 12-28-2010
Super dry bubbles. This does more than flirt with being austere. That being said, "thank you mistress, may I have another?"

Deligeroy Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé
Review Date: 12-28-2010
Party bubbles. A touch darker than you'd expect. Dark fruits fine bubbles and a crisp finish.
