Mediterranean Chicken Breasts
Domaine Meunier Bourgogne Chardonnay, Burgundy, France, £16.99
Although you could go for a light red wine such as a Pinot Noir with a flavourful dish such as this one, an easy-going white Burgundy instead, with its elegance and buttery, well rounded flavours would noticeably enhance some of the richer flavours and make both the food and the wine even more delicious. That’s the secret to great food and wine pairing, finding combinations that bring out the very best in both!
Flametree Chardonnay, Margaret River, Australia, £18.99
This award-winning wine has some beautiful floral notes and grapefruit aromas, both of which would work beautifully alongside the creaminess of the potatoes. What’s particularly interesting to notice about this wine is that it has been created using natural yeasts or a process known as ‘wild fermentation’, which gives it a lovely softness and full-bodied texture.
Creme Caramel and Nectarines Baked In Honey And White Wine.
Champagne Germar Breton Blanc de Noirs NV, France, £31.99
What better option can there ever be than to go for Champagne? Champagne is always an excellent choice and more often than not with many desserts and this pairing is no exception! The classic Champagne grapes are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier however, this Champagne is different and certainly an interesting one to try to take your enjoyment of Champagne to the next level! Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this intensely flavoured style Champagne has layers of red and black fruit flavours backed by a delightful freshness and a hint of brioche so it would certainly take centre stage as the showstopper wine to complete your summer feast!
