2007 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Magnum (1.5L)
Review Date: 02-06-2018
This ten-year-old vintage offering from one of my favorite Grand Marques is drinking great! Made entirely from Grand Cru Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it has a complex, rich flavor profile of green apple, pear, Bing cherry and toasty brioche. The balance is on point, making this one of the most immediately drinkable vintage Champagnes available.

2015 Domaine de l'Ermitage "Victor" Costières de Nîmes Rouge
Review Date: 02-06-2018
This is a delicious Grenache/Syrah/Mourvedre blend made by a small family winery in Costieres de Nimes, in the heart of the Rhone. Aged in stainless steel, it has pure rich flavors of blueberries and blackberries with graceful nuances of black pepper, herbs, and cola berry. It has plush, round tannins and the perfect amount of acid to lend structure to the juicy profile. That's a great bottle for under $10. ​

2012 Baccinetti "La Saporoia" Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 01-31-2018
If you are looking for a great Brunello to start drinking while you continue to age those ‘10s, the 2012 Saporoia is showing really nicely. Flavors of ripe cola berry and plums, hints of violets, mint and black tea, with delicious savory umami and herbal notes. I love the richness and drinkability afforded by the riper style of Baccinetti and it should age quite nicely over the next few years.

2013 Bersano "Mantico" Barbaresco
Review Date: 01-31-2018
This is the deal of the year on honest-to-god Barbaresco, made old school by Bersano since 1907. Aged in giant Slovenian barrels for a year, then several more in bottle, this has classic Nebbiolo character and power that is actually drinking great now. Rich cranberry, cherry fruit with the classic mint/amaro herb notes you often get from a great Barbaresco. It has plush, grippy tannins and the acidity to ensure several years of aging potential. If you are into the “wine of the kings” you ought to take advantage of this one while it lasts.

2011 Michel Arnould "Memoire de Vignes" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 01-24-2018
I love Pinot Noir Champagnes. I’m always stunned at the power and grace of the good ones, and the Memoire de Vignes from Michel Arnould is, for me, the pinnacle of that style. Made exclusively from the oldest of their estate Grand Cru vines, the precision and depth here are stunning. The rich fruit flavors (think mirabelles, golden apples, cherries, dried apricots) are met on the back end by an equally intense acidity, brimming with minerals and soft spice notes. As you let it warm in your glass, the complexity and length explode! This is a world class, vintage Champagne offered at a mind bogglingly low price.

2014 Ferraton Père et Fils "La Source" Saint-Joseph
Review Date: 01-18-2018
During a recent staff tasting of Rhones, this wine stuck out in terms of Northern Rhone Syrah values. It has a very bright and expressive nose of raspberry, violets, blackberries and black pepper, with good rich fruit but a nice balancing element of acid and earth. This would be a knockout with a wild game meal.

2016 François Chidaine Vin de France (Vouvray) Moelleux
Review Date: 01-18-2018
If Loire valley whites thrill you as much as me, this wine should be on your radar. It’s a Vouvray Chenin Blanc, though not labeled as such because the fermentation occurs outside of Vouvray. It is incredibly expressive with zesty minerals, flavors of white raisins, honey, golden apples with great balance and length. Pair with mild cheeses or an apple tartine.

2016 Domaine Huët "Le Haut-Lieu" Vouvray Sec
Review Date: 01-18-2018
The Loire Valley chenin blancs are some of the best in the world, and Domaine Huet is widely accepted as the top producer of them. The Haut-Lieu Vouvray Sec is a superbly crafted wine, with a rich aroma profile of golden apples with saffron spice, elderflower honey and cinnamon. The flavors are focused by great minerals and vibrant acidity into a long, clean finish. It’s truly one of the world’s top white wines at what amounts to a bargain price.

Baron-Fuenté "7" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 01-12-2018
How exciting! A new release from the baron of great values in Champagne, Baron Fuente! Correction, a new OLD release from Baron Fuente. The 7 began a journey that would eventually lead to our shelves (and hopefully your champagne glass) almost eight years ago, and the story it tells fun, intriguing and ultimately one I plan to revisit many times. The barrel aging of 20% of the Chardonnay gives the blend a beautiful creamy, viscous texture to go along with aromas of dried fruits, pear, honeysuckle and almond, all finished by great acidity. This is definitely a wine that makes keeping your guests' flutes full a real challenge.

Franck Bonville Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 01-11-2018
Olivier Bonville carries on the tradition of his grandfather, Franck, producing wines of incredible richness and complexity from his estate vines in the Grand Cru villages of Avize and Mesnil on the picaresque Cote de Blancs. It has the rich flavors of Anjou pear, Meyer lemon, white apricots and a touch of delicate spice. The real magic is in the chalky minerality and zippy acidity that the Cote de Blancs is famous for. When you consider that similar offerings from the Big Houses cost three to four times more, this becomes a must-buy for anyone calling themselves Champagne enthusiasts.

2015 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 01-10-2018
The search for amazing values in Napa Valley Cabernets has become an arduous task. With so many people jumping into the lucrative game to cash in on skyrocketing prices, buyers can end up wasting a lot of dollars on subpar efforts. Chappellet represents the opposite. Winemaker Phillip Corallo and viticulturalist David Pro have been working together for over 25 years, and the quality of the wine they make is remarkable. It shows deep, rich flavors of red currants, pepper, mocha, roses and cigar tobacco with velvety tannins and great acid for aging. The balance and integration are superb, and at prices that make it a comparative steal. This is what California wine is about.

2016 Luciano Sandrone Dolcetto d'Alba
Review Date: 01-03-2018
This has a great bouquet of crunchy blue and black brambly fruits, with a nice mid-palate weight and beautiful ripeness. Very well balanced in terms of tannin and acidity. If you’re a fan of Dolcetto, you won’t want to miss this one.​

2015 Gagliole "Rubiolo" Chianti Classico
Review Date: 01-03-2018
This has a beautiful Sangiovese bouquet with plums, raspberries and savory herbal notes. Sangiovese does great in warm vintages like 2015, and this is no exception with great acidity and tannins for ageability. While it is drinking delicious and fresh right now, a couple years in the cellar will do no harm at all.

Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 12-27-2017
A great amount of effort and care goes into Aspasie’s Carte Blanche, and it is instantly clear when you taste it. Low temperature macerated in small volume, then lightly filtered and aged for at least five years on the lees, it is a true wonder that the cost is not much higher than it is. Bright, pure flavors of Anjou pear, granny smith apple, toasted pastry dough, and hisbiscus, with a light creamy texture and crisp acidity.

Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 11-29-2017
Pol Roger, long the favorite Champagne House of the Royal Family of Great Britain, takes special steps towards exceptional quality in their Brut Reserve. The nonvintage cuvée is an equal blend of the three allowed varieties, which are double cold-settled and slow fermented in the particularly cold cellar (9°C) entirely in stainless steel. The result is incredibly pure fruit flavors of lemon citrus, apples and stone fruit with a generous, creamy texture from the 9g/L dosage and extended lees aging, during which each bottle is hand-riddled. Considering the process, this is and always has been a great value in bubbles. ​

2015 Cantina di Gallura "Genesi" Vermentino di Gallura
Review Date: 11-16-2017
This is one Italian white you don’t want to miss this holiday season. It is stunning! On the nose, flowers, bright orange citrus, cream, exotic spice and leesy richness. The texture is supple and satisfying, but with stellar acidity to bring that richness into focus on the finish, which just keeps going and going. This may be the best Vermentino I’ve ever tried.

2009 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 11-07-2017
Among the prestige cuvées in Champagne, Louis Roederer’s Cristal stands out for its delicacy, purity and precision. It is made entirely from mid-slope Grand Cru vines, with no malolactic fermentation and seven years of lees aging. Even in its relative youth, the 2009 displays a meticulous nature: mouth watering, fresh citrus fruit and white flower flavors with subtle underlying pastry notes that meld seamlessly with the richness from the long lees aging. This impressive vintage will last at least 30 years, so set a couple aside!

2014 Barde-Haut, St-Emilion
Review Date: 10-31-2017
When the Garcin family presented their wines at a K&L dinner a couple months back, I was amazed at the grace and style with which Barde-Haut aged. The 2014 should be no different: It offers amazing aging potential at great value. It has great fruit, blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, with toast from the oak regimen and a slightly smoky character with spice that adds complexity and layers.

2014 No Curfew California Pinot Noir
Review Date: 10-25-2017
Amici Cellars is one of the best wineries in the valley, and they are known for consistently offering value beyond price, but the No Curfew Pinot Noir is ridiculous in this regard. It has great fruit flavors of plums, cola berry and raspberry and a richness to acidity balance reminiscent of much pricier wines. This is my go to California red for everyday house wine. ​

Gilbert Jacquesson "Cuvée Tradition" Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne
Review Date: 10-21-2017
Made from only Pinot Meunier, this Blanc de Noirs carries aromas of Bing cherries, red apple and Asian pears, with a hint of lees on the back end to create the cherry pie experience with just a hint of spicy herbs. It’s very dry with incredible acidity.

Four Pillars "Faultline" K&L Exclusive Gin (750ml)
Review Date: 10-04-2017
Tasting this gin made me incredibly happy! I love gin for its refreshing nature, and Four Pillars have proven to be masters of the balanced, refreshing fruit-based gin profile. This has delicious flavors that lean a little more towards fresh fruit, with citrus, strawberry and orange peel flavors, fleshed out with subtle spices and botanicals. It’s amazing in mixed drinks.

Canard-Duchêne "Authentic" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 10-04-2017
The Authentique Rosé from Canard Duchêne has a soft, rich strawberry and raspberry fruit profile offered by the great Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims. The texture is lush and round, complemented by chalky minerality and kept in balance by refreshing acidity on the back end.

Canard-Duchêne "Authentic" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 10-04-2017
Canard Duchêne has experienced a renaissance of sorts since being purchased from Veuve Clicquot by Champagne Thienot in 2003, more than doubling sales since the purchase. The clear reason is the higher quality of the product. Made predominantly from Pinot Noir, the grape of Ludes, on the Montagne de Reims, the Authentique shows powerful, rich red-fruited flavors with a hint of Meyer lemon sweetness. The texture is brimming with minerality and a lively acidity.

2004 Krug Brut Champagne
Review Date: 10-04-2017
The latest vintage release from Krug since the legendary 2002 release is a different animal altogether. It comes from a vintage that fully benefited from the poor crop output of 2003, using the unspent energy for amazing crop yields across Champagne in 2004. It offers fineness, intensity, complexity and real aging power. Upon its release, some 13 years after production, it is vibrantly youthful and fresh, with nuanced notes of citrus, yeasty toast, saffron and dried apricots. This will go for many more years.

2014 Hyot, Côtes de Castillon
Review Date: 09-28-2017
Bright flavors of bramble, black raspberry, spice, violets, leather and oak. Very smooth tannic profile and enough acid for structure and freshness. It's tasting great now, but in 5 to 10 years it will be singing!

Charles de Cazanove Brut Champagne
Review Date: 09-27-2017
Very impressive Pinot dominant blend at a great price. The fruit comes mostly from the famous Montagne de Reims, where Pinot reigns supreme. It has beautiful, soft red fruit like cherries, strawberries, blood orange and marmalade that mingle perfectly with the toasty yeast. The fruit pops with vibrant acidity and the rich texture keeps you reaching for more.

Charles Heidsieck "Brut Reserve" Champagne
Review Date: 09-27-2017
In a lineup with 12 other Grand Marques, Champagne Charlie was at the top of my list of favorites. The Brut Reserve uses up to 20-year-old reserve wines for 40% of its blend and combines the flavors of fresh stone fruit and pears with quince and dried apricots for a rich, but ultimately refreshing and vibrant profile.

Taittinger "La Française" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 09-27-2017
This is one nonvintage brut from a Grand Marque that is well worth the money. The blend is 40% Chard, 35% Pinot, 25% Meunier and spends nearly 4 years on the lees in stainless steel. The result is vibrant, pure flavors of apples and pears with an underlying toastiness that accents the fruit.

Real McCoy 12 Year Old Single Blended Barbados Rum (750ml)
Review Date: 09-27-2017
Transparency is becoming a powerful factor in consumer decisions in the spirits world, and Real McCoy Rum has embraced this. Made using the pot and column stills at Criterion, then aged 12 years in charred Bourbon barrels, this has a beautiful amber brown color and a clean, smooth flavor profile of wet brown sugar, vanilla, caramel and slight grassy spice. It is bar none unmatched for smoothness.

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Review Date: 09-09-2017
After a dozen years, this Pauillac powerhouse is just hitting its full stride. Acid and tannin are both powerful, but fully balanced and integrated into the rich, unctuous texture. The flavors linger over the palate for more than a minute. Violets, cassis, pencil shavings, mulberries, cigar tobacco, and anise. This will go for another coupleo decades at least.

2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 09-07-2017
The Silver Oak Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the quality Napa wines can achieve with precise winemaking and the pristine fruit of the Valley. It showcases ripe, savory red currant, cherry and raspberry fruit flavors with slight thyme and rosemary herb elements. The French oak is well integrated and lends a subtle spice profile to the elegant wine. The tannins are still strong, and combined with the great acid, will help this bottle age beautifully for years.

2014 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien
Review Date: 08-23-2017
Black cherries, cola berries, minty herbs and anise make for an amazing flavor profile and long finish on this powerful and elegant claret. It is certainly a pleasure to drink right now, but it has the structure and acidity to age gracefully for, oh, a few decades or so. Wines this good usually cost a lot more.

2007 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan
Review Date: 08-23-2017
What a great price for a wine from this level of producer! The Pessac-Leognan powerhouse makes long lived claret, and the 2007 is in a good place. It is brightly fruited with cherry and red currant flavors, a little game and earth, and great sweetness of fruit. The acid would go with a rich steak perfectly.

2006 Bollinger Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 08-09-2017
When you’re on the market for a rich rosé, how can you go wrong with a barrel fermented gem from the decadent 2006 vintage? This one from Bollinger is superbly executed, with notes of roses and strawberries, and oxidative richness and toast from the barrel. Spectacular stuff.

Le Brun de Neuville "Authentique" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 08-09-2017
I fell instantly in love with LeBrun de Neuville’s “Authentique” Rosé. The blend, two thirds Chardonnay and one third Pinot Noir, has the best of both worlds: rich and vibrant red fruit flavors along with soft delicate notes of flowers and stone fruit. The acid keeps the blend energetic and the chalkiness of the Sezanne area it is grown in is undeniable.

2014 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend
Review Date: 08-04-2017
Make some room in your cellar for this spectacular Rutherford blend. Premium Napa blends are made for aging, and this one will do so beautifully. At this early stage in its long life, you will taste powerful, fresh black fruit and violets, minerally graphite, peppers and anise with just a hint of menthol. The tannins are perfectly extracted to be powerful but silky as they drift across the palate, and the acid balances and heightens all the flavors on the back end. Truly a wine that matches the stunning aesthetics of the winery itself…which is impressive.

Leopold Bros. "Summer" Limited Edition Gin (750ml)
Review Date: 08-02-2017
This is the perfect gin to finish the dog days of summer with. Juniper, blood orange, coriander and lemon myrtle compose the flavor profile, lending this Colorado libation a great balance between refreshing fruitiness and plenty of intriguing spice.

Fallet-Dart Brut Rose Champagne
Review Date: 06-27-2017
This Marne rosé is the rich delicious result of the maceration method, where the skins of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are left in contact with the wine for two days, giving it its rich pink color and round texture. The flavor profile is a great combination of bright red fruit with darker herbal elements for a very complete and satisfying rosé experience. ​

2014 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 06-20-2017
This vintage is stellar. It is sourced from the same vines as the ultra-premium Insignia and aged on a unique regimen of half-French, half-American, half-new oak barrels. It has perfectly ripened fruit with expressive flavors of blackberries, plums, violets, black pepper, mocha, licorice and black tea leaves. The tannins are smooth yet powerful and the great acidity ensures that this gem will age beautifully for years to come.

2015 Flowers Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Review Date: 06-20-2017
You have to take note when a premium winery like Flowers releases a biodynamic/organic Chardonnay from my favorite appellation for the varietal, Sonoma Coast. This is a beautiful wine that is at once creamy and toasty, refreshing, and full of secondary flavors of spices like clove and cinnamon from 11 months in 35% new French oak. Have this gem with some roasted chicken and fennel.

Laurent-Perrier "Grand Siècle" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 04-26-2017
The Grand Siècle (literally “Great Century”), is named after the age of King Louis XIV of France, and represents the awe and splendor that was known under his reign, during which Versailles was built. One of my absolute favorite prestige cuvées, it is composed entirely from Grand Cru sites, blended from three great vintages, then aged on its lees for the entirety of a decade. Wow. Made from 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, it has quince, green apple and citrus fruit with honey, almond and biscuit notes from the long aging. It has delicious toasty yeasty character and vibrancy from the great acid. This should be in every Champagne lovers cellar, ready for that perfect, or any, Champagne moment!

2015 Crystallum "Peter Max" Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Walker Bay
Review Date: 04-11-2017
The “Peter Max” Pinot Noir is fermented over an unusually long four weeks using minimum extraction methods. The result is a wine with power, concentration and elegance. It’s full of savory fruit flavors like cherry, raspberry and strawberry with strong herbs and tea leaves. It’s sexy and luscious while retaining great acid structure from the cooler climate of Walker Bay. A wonderful wine for the money.

2015 Crystallum "The Agnes" Chardonnay Hemel-en-Aarde / Overberg
Review Date: 04-11-2017
This great Chardonnay is entirely barrel fermented, but its richness (and it is rich) is mostly lees based since they only use 10% new oak. There are vibrant tropical flavors of melon and citrus, a rich creamy texture from the lees and time in barrel, and a well balanced cool climate acid to keep it fresh. Great example of Walker Bay Chardonnay from South Africa.

2009 Bois-Malot, Bordeaux Supérieur
Review Date: 03-29-2017
If you enjoy steak & claret regularly like I do, an affordable Bordeaux from a great vintage and producer like this is a godsend! It is classic Bordeaux in structure, with supple red fruit with a touch of savoriness, and the soft ample tannins typical of the vintage. Claret drinkers could definitely benefit from having a case of this quality everyday Bordeaux around.

Le Brun de Neuville "Authentique Assemblage" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 03-01-2017
In a direct import program that boasts hundreds of stunning grower-producer Champagnes at incredible values, the “Authentic Assemblage” from Le Brun de Neuville belongs near the top of the list not just in terms of value for the price but in overall quality. It boasts a rich, decadent style that comes from aging on its lees for five years under cork instead of bottle cap, a practice still used by only a tiny percentage of producers in Champagne. This allows for micro-oxygenation, which gives the wine a rich, rounded texture that perfectly balances out the crisp chalky minerals and the rich flavors of nectarine, honeysuckle, brioche and clove. The fact that it is available under $35 is a Champagne miracle.

Jacopo Poli Sarpa di Poli Con Tubo Grappa (750ml) (Cannot ship- in store pick up only)
Review Date: 02-23-2017
When I started working in the wine industry, I managed a store owned by a Greek family in Texas. Every year they would visit the mother country and bring back a true cornucopia of artisanal Greek paraphernalia: Kalamata olives, feta cheese, dried figs and wild oregano, olive oil and candied fruits. What I most looked forward to, though, was the grappa that an uncle made that came to me in a big plastic soda bottle. This stuff was the elixir of the gods. When I quickly and inevitably ran out I could never find a commercially available substitute…until I tried Jacopo Poli’s Sarpa di Poli. See, this grappa is made with as much care and in equally small batches in Schiavon, Italy as the Greek grappa that came in the soda bottle. It’s made from the pomace of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and has deep penetrating aromas of jasmine, sweet pear, green fruits, coriander and anise. It’s bone dry and super clean on the palate but maintains that rich flavor profile for over a minute on the finish. I love all the spirits of the world, from rich Highland Single Malts to funky agricole Rhums, but when all is said and done, nothing is as exciting and satisfying for me as an artisanal grappa like this.

A.D. Coutelas "Cuvée Louis Victor" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 02-05-2017
This Champagne, made using a sort of solera-style fractional blending, deserves a good amount of contemplation. It is incredibly precise and delicate with light citrus, apple, exotic fruits, and a hint of herbs with chalky minerality. But its method of production adds notes that are new to me in the realm of Champagne. It has almost a fine indigenous-yeast sherry note to it that I love! I now understand why this Champagne sells out so quickly every time we get it in stock.​

Laurent-Perrier "Cuvée Rosé" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 01-05-2017
Everything about the Cuvée Rosé is rich and seductive: the deep pink hue, the lush Pinot Noir fruit flavor, the silky texture. The fruit, entirely Grand Cru Pinot Noir, is destemmed, crushed and left in contact with the skins for an unusually long 72 hours, before being vinified and aged on the lees for four years. The result is a wine rich in the pure flavors of ripe strawberries, raspberries and black cherries and hazelnuts with a creamy texture, crisp bubbles, and incredible length. This is a very delicious — and unique—rosé Champagne.

Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 12-07-2016
I tried this at K&L Champagne buyer Gary Westby’s suggestion and I’m glad I did. It’s not every day a wine gives you a veritable “Wow” moment, but this one took me aback. Bruno Michel has been a pioneer in organic, biodynamic vine growing since the 1980s, and apparently putting prodigious amounts of tender love and care into them makes a stunningly good bottle of bubbly. Roughly half Meunier, half Chardonnay, the aroma profile is unique and complex: sweet flaky pastry, lemon zest and a hint of cocoa melded together by a rich lees quality. The acidity doesn’t necessarily stick out, but rather gives the wine the perfect sense of balance, tying together all the rich and complex flavors of quince, toasted pie crust, cloves and baked apples perfectly. They may not have the marketing power of the “Grand Marques” but Bruno Michel’s champagnes would stand up to the very best of them in any tasting panel.
