This Just In / Bordeaux

  • Burgers & Bordeaux w/ Katie

    Friday the 31st at 4pm
    I know it's not summer yet let alone Spring but I've been craving some burgers lately and since we just got back from Texas...I'm still on my meat diet. When eating burger and wine you never use a fancy wine glass. It's more about the burger but since I'm not grilling burger for everyone, this tasting will be more about the wine and what you can serve up with said burgers.

    So now for...Burgers & Bordeaux

    2018 Château Darzac, Entre deux Mers Blanc - A crisp and tangy wine from Vignobles Claude Barthe, this is bright with acidity. The lively character is balanced by a touch of citrus that brightens everything.

    2017 Château Roc de Levraut - From the broad Bordeaux Supérieur appellation, with aromas and tastes of ripe blackberry, tart cherry, and leather, plus a touch of dark chocolate on the finish.

    2016 Château Barateau Haut-Medoc - This well-structured wine has an almost equal proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It is balanced, with tannins that will soften as the wine matures. A fresh aftertaste along with the tannins promise good aging.

    2016 Chateau Bourbon La Chapelle - This wine is a selection from the Castera estate. The high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon gives it black-currant fruits and fine tannins. Rich and still young, the wine will age well and should be drunk from 2022

    2016 Chateau Haut Peyrillat - Harmonious, powerful, hints of cooked fruit, hints of vanilla, hints of toasted coffee, round tannins, structured body, good intensity, long length.

    Turn on the grill...it's burger time. I suggest an 80/20 blend for the meat.
