Bargain Burgundy (and the Shake Shack Burger) – Drink Bravely with Mark Oldman – Episode 34

Shake Shack and wine? Yes, please. Though red Burgundy is never cheap, Mark reveals a strategy to find good bottles at the lower end of the price spectrum. Like seeking a humble burger from a celebrated restaurateur or chef (read: the veritable Shake Shack!), Mark suggests sourcing red Burgundy in its humblest form (the basic, generic “Bourgogne”) from a top producer (here, the acclaimed Domaine Leroy).
