Burger & Bordeaux Wine Pairings


Del Frisco’s Grille, the new American bar and grill known for its vibrant ambiance, presents a specially-curated “Burgers & Bordeaux” menu that pairs three well-regarded wines from France with three newly introduced burger dishes at all U.S. locations until July 2.

Wine selections from Bordeaux were hand-picked to represent the two zones of southwest France split by the Gironde River – Left Bank and Right Bank. Both are known for producing top-quality wine with unique flavor profiles. A selection from the White Region is part of the offerings as well, which was selected as it only represents 10 percent of all Bordeaux wines.

Each of the three wines is paired with its burger counterpart to serve as the perfect complement, enhancing the flavors of each dish more than what guests would otherwise experience. The following custom menu features the three burger and wine pairings, available at all locations, as well as the reason why each pairing results in ultimate satisfaction:

  • The Blanc
    • Burger: The Blanc, comprised of a turkey burger, pear mostarda, brie, roasted garlic aioli and arugula on a toasted brioche bun
    • Wine: Chateau Peyrat, Graves Blanc (White Region)
    • Why They’re Paired: The silky, citrusy notes of this white Bordeaux complement the lightness of the turkey and the richness of the brie.Del Frisco's The BlancThe Château
    • Burger: The Château, comprised of 6-oz. house-ground filet mignon, goat cheese, tomato jam, caramelized onions and roasted garlic aioli spring mix on a toasted brioche bun
    • Wine: Chateau Tour Bayard, Montagne-Saint Émilion (Right Bank)
    • Why They’re Paired: The dark fruit notes of this bold, earthy Bordeaux contrasts with the acidity of the tomato jam and the bold flavors of black garlic and goat cheese.Del Frisco's The ChateauThe Légende
    • Burger: The Légende, comprised of 6-oz. house-ground filet mignon, wild mushrooms, raclette, black garlic aioli, truffle vinaigrette and arugula on a toasted Kaiser roll
