White. Wine Club #13 went off without any unlucky hitches. Thanks to Jack & Raquel who hosted - it was a lovely spread.
We tasted nine white Burgundies. White Burgandy wines are traditionally made with Chardonnay grapes, but unlike the common California Chardonnay, are more delicate and minerally. They are also Mrs. Robot's favorite white wine.

Maybe due to the fact that white Burgundies aren't common in the average wine shoppe (as far as variety), we had two sets of duplicates. Super props to Josh who I believe was the only person who correctly picked both sets even though they were all clad in brown paper.

With the duplicates, it kind of threw things off - The results are a bit wonky. I think. It's hard to tell. Math don't fail me now!
Bottom line: I think we liked all the wines and a good time was had by all.
