K & L has long been the best place in SF and the Peninsula to buy wines, and their website is very good, too. But this review is about a special event sponsored by K & L wines:

Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2009 vintage tasting event at the Bently Reserve, January 21, 2012.

This event brought together 85+ Chateau labels from Bordeaux, many the owners themselves, for tasting their 2009 vintage wines. Already, 2009 is recognized as a stellar year in Bordeaux, compared to great years like 1947, 1982 and 2005. Or as K & L describes it, "Pure Cashmere".

So my favorite Bordeaux lover and I attended the sold out event, inside the great marble halls of the Federal Reserve building.

The Chateaux were organized and grouped in the hall by Appellations (official wine making regions of Bordeaux). There were over a dozen represented, including Medoc, Haute-Medoc, Pomerol, Saint-Emillion, Saint-Estephe, Margaux, Pauillac, Pessac-Leognan, Graves and Sauternes. Within each region, were the individual Chateau labels and wine makers, offering you a taste of their 2009 vintage.

This was a rare opportunity to taste a wide selection of Bordeaux wines and talk to the wine makers themselves and their representatives about their 2009 vintage, and learn a tremendous amount about them, while enjoying the chance to taste each one you desired.

There were plenty of refreshers, with a large table of cheeses, nuts, fruits and also plenty of water to clear the palette and enjoy the wines.

K & L and the Union des Grand Crus did an excellent a job of organizing the event. There were limited tickets (it sold out quickly, even at $85/each) so as not to make it look like an open Yelp event gone wild with +1 freeloaders hoarding everything in sight. There were published guides from both UGC and K&L to assist attendees to make the rounds and have the information they needed about each Chateau, and each wine.

The wine selection was spectacular, and the wines themselves were sexy and enthralling. So were some of the attendees, despite the average age being twice the age of your average Yelp event attendee.

Most of the wines will retail in the $35 - $90 range per bottle, depending on Chateau and wine. Of course, the most famous (and very expensive) Chateaux were not present, and don't need to be, such as Mouton-Rothschild, Lafite-Rothschild, etc. But you can find some of their vintages on K & L's website if you are yearning to burn a lot of cash, or invest in wines.

K & L makes several trips a year to the Bordeaux region, and one of the owners is a Bordeaux fanatic, so if you like Bordeaux, you cannot go wrong in visiting their store or website, or learning from them about the wines. And that is true for all other wine making regions of the world.

This was a great event, and I learned a lot. Thanks K & L!

Great wine store with good prices. There's another one of these in Redwood City. This one is over on 4th a little south of the freeway overpass.

Has a good selection of wines from around the world, and they select good wine to sell.
