Everything you always wanted to know about wine but never dared to ask

Duck breast is one of the French people's favourite dishes. There are many ways to cook it, which will direct the wine and duck pairing towards several regions. But what wine with a duck breast?

Duck breast is a fairly powerful meat in taste, so it must be served with a wine that can rival this power. A duck breast in a frying pan or a duck breast on the barbecue can be served with a red wine from Bordeaux or the Southwest.

Which wine with a classic duck breast

It may seem rather classic to serve a red wine from Bordeaux with a duck breast, but it is very effective. A duck breast in the oven or a duck breast à la plancha will serve as the perfect cooking method.

Which wine with a duck breast with honey

Often good surprises with Côtes-de-Gascogne wines. A little known appellation with low volumes but which deserves to be recognized for its white wines (very feminine wines!) and its red wines.
