Pairings | Côtes du Roussillon
Good news! The best wine with chicken can be either red or white - it depends on your own personal taste and the way it’s cooked.
It’s true that lamb is one of the most wine-friendly of meats, as at home with red Bordeaux and Rioja as it is with the fruitier wines of the new world. But if you’re looking for a spot-on wine pairing it’s worth thinking just how - and for how long - you’re going to cook it.
The spring tasting season has started in earnest and bargains are coming thick and fast but I’ve picked out this appealing Roussillon red from Majestic as it’s on special offer at £7.99 until May 7th if you buy six bottles (after that it will be £9.99 and £11.99 if you buy a single bottle).
Or 'what wine should I drink with hachis parmentier?' - the French answer to shepherd's and cottage pie.
