2008 Le Brun de Neuville "Grand Vintage" Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Almost entirely Chardonnay, with just a whisper of Pinot Noir, this is a dry Champagne. It is crisp, lively, steely and with great intensity. The apple and lemon flavors are just a part of this impressive wine that could age longer. Drink from 2019. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2017) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A firm version, with a light and lacy mousse carrying pretty hints of ripe black cherry, apple blossom, chalk and biscuit. Clean-cut on the moderate finish. Drink now through 2025. (AN, Web Only-2017)" K&L Notes: This clas ...Read More »

2008 Fallet-Dart Vintage Extra Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Fallet-Dart Vintage Extra Brut Champagne

This is the same Champagne as the 2008 Brut, but at a lower dosage- 4g/l instead of 7g/l. The blend for the vintage 2008 is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir with aging of 72 months at the minimum. It is certainly one of the most exciting bottles of vintage Champagne in the store, from a vintage that many in the region consider the best in a generation.

Tullibardine is a small distillery in the village of Blackford, gateway to the Highlands. It's history goes back to the 15th century as a brewery of fine beers.

Notes of agave and cassia bark add depth, suggesting the complexity this will develop with further bottle age."

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK!

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer.

Sweet, open floral notes lead to tobacco, leather, anise and spices as this gorgeous Barolo shows off its class. There is more than enough fruit to balance the tannins, but the 2008 remains tight and in need of further cellaring. Still, there is so much to admire in this classy, mid-weight Barolo. In 2008, the Cannubbio is all class and finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012)

A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec (48% from Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, 34% from Chalk Hill and 18% from Knight’s Valley), the 2008 has similar technical numbers to the 2007 (a pH of 3.68 and 14.4% alcohol).

Readers who can be patient will be treated to a spectacular Champagne. The blend is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, which makes the 2008 a rare Clos des Goisses that favors Chardonnay.

2008 Tobermory 8 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Refill Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th- and 5th-fill cask. The slightly feinty style of the malt really needs some higher quality oak to be softened enough to release its complexity, but once it does it can be an absolute treat. There's no question that Tobermory has the potential to provide incredible depth and enjoyme ...Read More »
