A perfect summer food and wine pairing for the bold flavor lover
Savvy match: This gourmet cheeseburger au poivre is the perfect pairing for a classic Zinfandel as they each enhance the other’s flavor. The smokiness and high acidity in the Zinfandel draw out the savory, meaty flavors of the burger fresh off the grill. The gouda is also a perfect balance with the Zinfandel, both bold and can hold their own but melt together when paired.
We recommend doing the work and making an incredible gourmet cheeseburger using freshly ground beef and adding some of that culinary flair you can only find with the French! If you have a meat grinder at home, pull that baby out, and get messy. If you don’t have one, visit your butcher and ask them to grind this ratio for you on the spot, and they will usually do it happily. This is the much easier and faster option, and honestly, who doesn’t love going to the butcher shop? I know I do.
