Errázuriz Valle de Aconcagua Sauvignon Blanc – 2011 – 8.8 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

8.8

Tasting through quite a number of high quality Sauvignon Blancs from Chile–a great find and I certainly recommend finding a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc if you are a fan.  Notes of freshly peeled grapefruit peel and zest, sesame white tea, and hibiscus.

Georges Duboeuf Broilly – #GDandBurgers – 2009 – 8.8 – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

This is a wine that I paired with a house made burger.

A great experience of burgers and Beaujolais–something I had not done before or even thought of until #GDandBurgers event.  I have been on man virtual tastings and I do think there is a great opportunity to taste with a diverse audience that is on a large geographical spread.  I liked #GDandBurgers because a chef prepared some tasting looking burgers and there were good speakers to talk about Beaujolais wines.

This wine exhibited notes of chile ancho, black pepper, blackberry and Acai

¡Salud!
