Try an earthy Oregon Pinot Noir with this French classic
Savvy match: Coq au vin is the quintessential dish of Bourgogne and pairs naturally with the fruity, earthy characteristics of Pinot Noir. This hearty dish of the French countryside is a perfect dish for a cold winter night whether your table is in Beaune or McMinnville.
Pairing with a lovely Pinot Noir elevates the dish to something one would be proud to serve guests at a formal dinner party. Undoubtedly a wine from Bourgogne itself is a sure win with Coq au vin, but for a selection a little closer to home, reach for an Oregon Pinot Noir. Known as a subtle wine often with cranberry, mushroom, and earthy truffle characters, it is a great option to meld with the earthy flavors of the root vegetables.
