Food Pairings for M Chapoutier Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour Domaine de Bila-Haut
This wine was chosen for a Beef Stroganoff dish - perhaps with the notion that some Carignan zing might counter the sour cream sauce. Anyway, this wine does not disappoint when paired with the food as described: the very slight rusticity and light to medium tannin is perfect with Stroganoff; a slight tartness perfectly meshes with the food. I do not have the Basque term for gemutlich, but perhaps such a term is needed for this nicely balanced blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignon. The sour cherry notes are great if the wine is slightly chilled and called into service as an aperitif. Good value from a good vintage.
Went very well with steak.
Perfect with paste or pizza
