Did you know that? China is the world's largest consumer of red wine! Maybe because at home, the colour red is a sign of joy and happiness.
With your caramel pork, red wine is a frequent accompaniment in China. We recommend a sweet, fruity and gentle red wine with discreet tannins. Explosions of flavours are allowed with aromas of red fruits, liquorice and spices, but also scents reminiscent of ginger.
White is also allowed even if the colour represents sadness and mourning in China! Silky and sweet wines with a golden robe bring out the caramel very well.
On the red side, Rhone Valley wines such as Rasteau are sweet and natural wines with aromas of red fruits and spices. Dry and young wines are also relevant, such as the Languedoc Grès de Montpellier, or the red Côtes du Rhône.
On the white side, you can try a Banyuls with its golden, almost amber colour, and its scents of candied fruits. For a lighter wine, choose an Alsace wine such as a gewurztraminer. Enjoy your meal!
Caramel pork comes from Vietnamese cuisine but it is also a very well known dish among the Chinese. At Les Grappes, it's probably the dish you prefer when you order lunchtime! This dish mixes the salty taste of pork with the sugar of caramel, and even the spice of ginger! The textures are rich, the stringy pork is bathed in the gourmet caramel sauce, and it is often accompanied by rice. Pork is sometimes replaced by fish or beef for an equally gourmet recipe.
