gessami: stunning wine chosen by the most stunning chelsey!!!
the most gorgeous chelsey(my business manager) chose this blockbuster spanish white wine that is exploding with aromas of jasmine, ripe apricot, and lychee…4 dynamic  aromatic varietals that always deliver…gew├╝rztraminer,  2 different varietals of muscat, and the backbone of this wine- sauvignon blanc…imported by the one of the best: eric salomon(As an importer, we wish all our wines to speak distinctly of a “place”-that their expression is one of the particular locale…unobscured by winemaking interventions.”)  has the talent to find these gems from spain…origin: penedes: the home of our beloved cavas...this wine is so enticing and mesmerizing that my buddy rodman and i drank it within ½ hr. sunday nite on the wine chairman’s patio…we paired it with some lite cheeses and salamis…a must pair with thai food and of course, under 20 dollars!!!
Please watch the video….with the ever lovely chelsey and the winechairman:

pouilly fuisse=unoaked chardonnay from burgundy,france




pouilly fuisse is a great entry to white burgundies for under $20…100 percent chardonnay and almost always no oak…great acids, great fruit flavors- green apples, guava, pineapple…tropical fruits…often these wines are very expressive and pair with summer foods such as grilled seafood, shrimp and oysters from the gulf, summer salads and light fruit and cheese plates…you can find these wines at joe saglimbienis, whole foods, central market and heb…if they don’t have a pouilly fuisse…ask for a macon…the next best wine that has similar characteristics and are under 20$$$...a great way to begin your study of white burgundies!!!  Also…here is a great website…quick and easy that i use all the time as a reference for french wines…
