How to Pair Bordeaux by Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits December 17, 2014

Upper West Side, Manhattan
How to Pair Bordeaux by Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits, Manhattan, New York

Bordeaux is the “King of Wines” for a reason, and Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits is your go-to for incredible wine selections such as Château Pichon-Longueville Baron. This splendid selection, filled with the dense aromas of licorice, tobacco, cedar, and currants, is a Martin Brothers special.

What will you purchase this splendid wine with? Here are four tips to keep in mind when pairing food with one of the world’s best wines:

  • Serve simple dishes with your best wines.

Bordeaux wines usually contain many different aromas, which would otherwise be lost in an overly complicated menu. Keep it simple.

  • If the wine is younger, your dish can be heavier.

Younger wines have more tannins—molecules from the plants, seeds, bark, wood, leaves, and fruit skins that were used to create them. Because they are rich in flavor, they can handle stronger, heavier dishes. Try lamb, aged beef, and stews. You won’t be disappointed in how the wine matches up.

  • Preparation is important.

Although most people may primarily always pair red wines with red meats, you don’t have to be limited in your thinking. By preparing fish (think sauteed bass or mussels) and chicken with thicker textured ingredients like mushrooms, tomato or veal stock, you can turn something that may have originally worked better for white wine into an amazing red wine pairing.

  • Together, wine and cheese is a match made in heaven.

At the end of your meal, wine and cheese is a perfect choice. Consider pairing your glass with a delicious and tasty Roquefort or Gorgonzola. 

Don’t miss the amazing selections at Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits! To browse through and learn more about their wine and spirits, stop by their New York store, visit them online, or call (212) 222-8218.
