Grappes & Le Parisien
Everything you always wanted to know about wine but never dared to ask

A great classic of main courses, tournedos is a "must" of red meat. A meat that can perhaps be drunk with more than 100 different wines (appellations). So as usual, no fuss, Les Grappes offers you its selection...

The top with a good tournedos is that you don't need a knife, it cuts with a fork because it's so soft. The piece of meat chosen is the beef fillet! Topped with a small pepper sauce and a few shallots (for purists). A classic red meat classic served with baked or pan-fried potatoes, it is a treat every time.

But we always come back to the same thing: many red wines are suitable for red meat and especially for tournedos, the classic of the classics!
