The best food and wine pairings follow this simple rule. Complex wine, simple food. Simple wines, Complex food, simple wine. Roast chicken is a great pairing as it works with either simple or complex wine. Roast Chicken Bordeaux Wine is all that and more.
This dish was paired with the 1982 Cos d’Estournel; Silky, rich, smoky, tobacco, black currant, earth and cedar wood and a long, complex, elegant style won me over. At close to 30 years of age, this is drinking great today and was the perfect partner with the roast chicken!
