Yummy, Merlot with a Big Mac
Found this article interesting. Guess none of these are as bad as Miles drinking his 1961 Chateau Cheval Blanc at the fast food joint.
Well, why not? I did see white and rosé "McVin" at an outpost of the Golden Arches outside of Toulouse.
Not to disparage the underlying concept of just enjoying wine with food.............. but I'm curious as to how Diaz concludes that Merlot is best with a Big Mac, but a Whopper goes best with Chardonnay. Just sayin"??????????????????
Could this just possibly be a comment on the general elusiveness of "sophisticated" wine pairing tastes in general??? Ya think?
Without dredging through someone's ideas, I will say that in most cases, I prefer a nice Merlot, like a Duckhorn, with my burgers. That is just me.
