Ten Buck Gem Recipe

Chim_1The latest contributor to this month's meme (Ten Buck Wine Gems), Chef Melissa recommends a $6.95 Chilean Trio from Concha y Toro.  It's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, and Cab Franc.  She then went and got all chef-y on us and provided a Trio-friendly recipe:  Empanadas Chilenas con Salsa Chimichurri.

Thanks to the Cooking Diva, I got a plan for the weekend - whisking some chimichurri & sippin a TBD Cab-Shiraz blend.

And lo! I've discovered two new-to-me wine blogs from the great Pacific northwest: le wine blog and Through the Grape Vine.  So, Jameson & Catie, gotta ten buck wine gem you'd like to add to the list?

Hey! Thanks for the plug! Here's my under 10 buck gem:

2004 Beaulieu Picpoul de Pinet Coteaux du Languedoc

(Yeah, it's a mouthful.)

If you like wines with racy acidity and minerality, bone-dry and pure, this is your wine. You should find it for $8.99. The 2004 vintage is fantastic for European whites. Thank God, after suffering through flabby 2003s. The importer is Kysela and if you are in the Pacific NW, you can get it from Triage. Cheers!
