I was recently asked to do a "what are you drinking at home?" piece for a BostonChef's spread. While there are many correct answers (including Patron blanco on Saturday night, yeah!) here's what I chose:
The Brits are fond of saying that "a wine's first duty is to be red" - and we certainly consume a healthy heaping of red wine at my house. But lately it's been white Burgundy that's been floating my proverbial boat! The tension between the Chardonnay grapes textured layers and the region's inherent palate-cleansing acidity keeps the glass coming back to the lips with pleasant frequency. Whether it be a simple Bourgogne blanc from Vignerons de Buxy Co-Op (my current "house white") or a Premier Cru Saint-Aubin from Marc Colin, these wines fulfill their duty quite well, thank you!
