Burgundy and Renkon Chips


Fries are so yesterday. Try renkon chips with your Red Burgundy or Pinot. Yum.

1990 Red Burgundies are drinking so good right now. I wouldn't hesitate opening any. The flavors are deliciously fresh, still rich and dark, yet the texture has softened into a voluptuous sexiness. Like this awesome 1990 Beaune Marconnets Premier Cru of Bouchard Pere et Fils. Bought this only for $20.99 on release. You'd probably pay double for the CURRENT release of this.

To find equivalent quality Burgundy for under $30 these days you have to check out producers the likes of Didier Montchovet, with his 2010 Hautes Cotes de Beaune, an overachiever made from vines up to 50 years-old planted a few kilometers from Pommard.
