Wine Pairing of the Year
It didn’t take long for Jacques to kick the year off right with our first Wine Pairing of the Year! entry:
Customer requested a peppery wine to go with Cabrito (goat).
Jacques’ answer: Bertrand Galbrun ‘Charrois’ Bourgeuil
Bourgeuil is an appellation in France’s Loire Valley, and its red wines are made from Cabernet Franc. Galbrun’s is a wonderfully savory offering of pepper, black cherries and currants. The wine has the acidity to cut though the oily meat while carrying the flavors of both. A marvelous pairing suggestion.
