2013 Val de Mer Bourgogne Rosé
Review Date: 6-26-2014
This is a rosé that demands your attention. The nose is all about very soft and delicate red-fruited Pinot Noir--you cannot wait to taste it. Those flavors are echoed on the palate, then snap! There is that Chablis acidity. Mouthwatering and delicious, this is everything that I want from a rosé.

2012 Olivier Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc "Oncle Vincent"
Review Date: 6-26-2014
This is not a simple Bourgogne Blanc, but then look at who makes this wine. This wine has more richness, more creaminess and just the right touch of oak that belies its modest price point. All of that supports its lovely stone fruit and mineral flavors.

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.

2006 Antonio Sasa "Martina" Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 11-29-2011
This is my go to '06 Brunello. Why? Because it is ready to rock 'n roll. Dark, intense with very attractive fruit tones and complexity that is not buried underneath youthful tannin. Drink it tonight with an hour decant or hold onto it for a few more years.

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!

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.

Fleury Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 12-28-2010
This is like drinking sparkling red burgundy. Surprise power, depth and subtlety. Worth every penny.

Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 10-6-2010
This is no ordinary rose. Yes, it is beautifully colored, has a great mouse, and is just too easy to drink but there is something else going on here as well. In one word, complexity. This is like drinking beautiful sparkling Burgundy. Wonderful aromatics, multidimensional fruit, a round, generous mid-palate and great length, this is more than special occasion Champagne, this is indulgent, you deserve it, treat yourself (family and friends optional) Champagne!

2003 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 7-24-2010
You really do not have to look further than the label to understand this wine. It is old school from a very warm vintage. Ripe fruit back by rather big tannins that are starting to knit themselves into the wine, dark earthy tones and spice. For under $20 you will be hard pressed to find another Bordeaux with its power, complexity and accessibility.
