K&L Notes

The wines of this family domaine have been a staple here at K&L since the 1994 vintage when Franck and Betty Millet drove a long way (to Beaune!) on Easter Sunday to meet Clyde and crew to present the wines. We love these wines for their freshness, charm and affordability.

    An amazing, minerally rosé from a favorite producer, Franck Millet’s lean Rosé of Pinot Noir is crisp and sophisticated, with watermelon notes and an easygoing quality that pairs with everything from BBQ to spicy takeout. 2016 was a colder vintage, and you can feel that in this vivid release. While Sancerre is always a refreshing choice in the summer, this Direct Import has the longevity to drink well into the holiday season and beyond.

    Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this is delicious and crisp with ripe peaches, watermelon, stony minerality and Rainier cherry at its core.

    As with the Rhone Valley’s Chateau de Montfaucon’s owner, UC Davis graduate Rodolphe de Pins, productions that we have been also importing for over twenty years, Franck Millet brought his production samples of Sancerres to Clyde on one of his buying trips to Bordeaux way back when to see if he could convince our fearless leader into directly importing his wines to K&L. And, as with Montfaucon, Clyde was so taken with the incredible quality of Millet’s wines, he had no choice but to do so. Initially it was strictly the Sauvignons from Millet that we brought in, but as our Rosé sales exploded five-plus years ago, Clyde made the wise decision to also begin including his Rosé. And, we are all glad he did. This 2016 has a striking pink hue about it, and offers a lovely perfume of current and strawberry, with just a hint of Chilean Jasmine floral notes. In the mouth, this gorgeous Gem is crisp and mouthwatering, yet rich, creamy, and dry, which leads to a bright, refreshing finish. This also continues the run of exceptional Rosés from them. The Bean and I see a bucket of steamed clams sitting in front of us to go with this excellent Gem, and has ordered me to bring home cases of this exceptional Rosé – plus, buckets of clams. Don’t miss this Gem! AN AMAZING ROSÉ VALUE!!! …..A K&L WINE MERCHANTS’ DIRECT IMPORT….. ***** 12.5% ABV *****
    Drink from 2016 to 2018
