Had K&L co-owner and main wine buyer Clyde Beffa Jr. not read an article about the gentlemanly hobby of wine collecting in the February 1971 issue of Playboy, he might still be weighing the merits of Holsteins versus Jerseys instead of Château Margaux or Haut-Bailly. Beffa owned a dairy in Tracy, California, from 1967-1973, leaving the the business to co-found K&L Liquors, as it was known back then, in 1976. Clyde started traveling to Europe in 1982 and over the years, he has worked hard to build K&L into one of the nation's go-to sources for the world's diverse wines, developing relationships with winemakers and châteaux owners the world over. Clyde's passion is surely Bordeaux, especially the fabulous wines from Pauillac and St-Julien (like Pichon-Lalande and Léoville-Barton). When he's not drinking France's legendary reds, you'll likely find Clyde indulging in Sauvignon Blanc. A fan of Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and white Bordeaux, he'll also tuck into a bottle of Kiwi Sauv Blanc if there's no corkscrew around. These days you'll likely find Clyde extolling the virtues of underrated Bordeaux vintages like 1991, 1997, 1999, 2004 and 2006, or playing with his German Shepherd Sadie. Or you may see him in his vegetable garden and, once in a great while, on the golf course.

The second wine of the famous Clinet property is quite rare. We tasted it and loved it in the April 2017 Bordeaux trip. Quite plummy aromas and still elegant on the palate. Superb balance and lingering finish. try it.

The great St Julien property Beychevelle has some land just south of St Julien in the haut medoc. This pretty wine has all the characteristics of St Julien-cola aromas, silky texture, etc. Cassis aromas and just all crushed berry sweetness on the palate. Very close to Beychevelle in style. A must try. First time we have bought this label.

A fabulous value from the great 2010 vintage. It is showing beautiful right now. Lots of cinnamon and clove on the nose that follows to the palate. First time we had ever tasted this property and we said 100 cases for sure. As good as $40 wines out there and it has structure to age for several years. One of the great value 2010s that shows more fruit than tannin.

What a great value here. We tasted it during April 2017 Bordeaux trip-Organic wine made by Ch La Croix Taillefer, Pomerol. A blend of merlot and Cabernet, it is so lush on the palate-a bit new wave and quite California style. Sweet and sexy with some savoury notes. A steal at $13. These 15s are super delicious at this early stage.

A great value from a reliable property-this is almost as good as their 2009 and 2010 which sold for $39.99 Blackberry jam, and boysenberry aromas. Mineral notes on the palate. Great balance. Shows solid grip and should do well with cellaring.

This is indeed "liquid gold" We tasted it in April 2016 at Cheval Blanc and we were knocked out by its purity and seamlessness. By far the best Yquem since the glorious 2001 vintage. This may surpass it in quality. Honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, and sweet creme brulee aromas In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration. Refreshing and as perfect as perfect can be.

A delightful summertime white--the perfect "poolside sipper." Quite elegant and soft. Some citrus notes and fine acidity. Not your overblown, full-throttle California Chardonnay--just an easy-to-drink white value wine. Apple aroma and flavor with a fresh, lively finish. This was made by a very famous Russian River Valley producer. Note our new label. Alas, our names are not on the label.

Another standout with fantastic berry fruit, baker’s chocolate and super-silky tannins with that unmistakable Margaux feel. This was the biggest seller we had for the 2015 Bordeaux offering. This wine is vying with it for the crown of best in store. Bright and lively. So lush and ripe. Jean Luc Zuger has fashioned another top wine for 2016. This wine is a bit more precise than the 2015.

The Haut de Poujeaux is one of two additional labels from the Moulis estate—Salle de Poujeaux and this one. We have carried both and have found no difference in the quality. The wine has toasty, oaky aromas, and after decanting it opens up to a red fruited beauty, both forward and delicious. An absolutely great wine to enjoy now.

This property was making fabulous wines in the '80s and slipped in the '90s. Now they are back and on top of their game. The Château Clinet 2014 is a blend of 90% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc. A subtle wine with very pretty, ripe fruit character and chocolate nuances. Really is delicious and among my faves for the Right Bank 2014s.

We sold almost 2000 bottles of their great 2009 and 2010 vintages at $34 to $39 dollars. This wine is close in quality and less than $25 makes it the bargain for 2014 Bordeaux. I agree with James Molesworth's notes. I am a 93 on it. "Very solid, with a core of gently steeped black currant and plum fruit that shows ample depth, while notes of bay, loam and bramble run underneath. A loamy edge echoes longest, thanks to well-embedded acidity."

Veronique Sanders can do no wrong at Haut Bailly and this property is a star in Bordeaux. A very well-made wine with ripe cherry and cassis notes. Bright fruit and lively acidity balance the tannins very well, and the finish is long and quite complex. One of the truly great 2014s.

One of our favorite properties in Pauillac-our home away from home. We have stayed here at least 5 times in the 90s when Henri Van der Voort owned it. Situated near Chateau Latour and Pichon Lalande, Bellegrave has great terroir and this 2014 is not as hard as some older vintages have been. Big Cassis aromas and flavors with some tannin on the finish. Decant and enjoy with Cassoulet.

To me one of the greatest Climens I have ever tasted. Perfect balance and rich lingering finish. As Neil Martin so aptly says: "The palate is wonderfully poised, pure and precise; more citrus than previous bottles with a good level of botrytis, building nicely towards the focused mellifluous, peachy finish that suggests this Climens has a long future ahead." The acid balance of 1988 Sauternes is the key part of the wines.

We loved 1987 and 1997 vintage Bordeaux-restaurant vintages with low scores and low prices combined with great taste. 2007 is 1997 on steroids.

Enjoy the of the vintage and the richness that jean Luc Zuger extracts from this beauty.

One of the best efforts from the 2006 Bordeaux vintage. Jean Luc Zuger has been bringing Malescot to the forefront of the Bordeaux scene for the last 20 years. Dark ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied, with superb concentration and moderate tannin, this is a beauty of finesse and substance that should be at its best between 2017 and 2024.

One of our favorite margaux wines. Jean Luc Zuger is fashioning some of the best values in all of Bordeaux. Do not miss his 2015 and 2016 vintages. 2004 was a classic Bordeaux vintage-we love the wines as they are always well-priced between the famous 2003 and 2005 vintages. Our good friend James Suckling scores it 92. "This is rich and decadent with truffles and blackberries on the nose that follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a polished, pretty finish." I am a 93 on it.

K&L's notes in 2008 - Good entry...sweet middle. Aristocratic. Very good. At the UGC the wine was full and ripe. Big wine on palate and sweet mid-palate impression. Tannic finish. At the property the wine exhibited a deep purplish color and fine red berry aromas and flavor. On the bigger side. 50 hectoliters per hectare here which is normal. 70% cabernet and 26% merlot with the rest cab franc. This wine could be the best value in older Haut Bailly wines-one of our favorites in Bordeaux.

The folks at Chateau Segonzac are sticklers for quality. They hand harvest the fruit from the “old vines” and all the grapes are hand sorted once they get to the winery. The careful selection process at Segonzac helps to create concentrated, full flavored wines. The bright, lush fruit is balanced with plenty of ripe tannins. Old school label and very good tasting wine for under $10.
