What to drink with couscous?

If you are in a hurry

With a Couscous, we recommend:

  • A fruity and fragrant rosé like a Faugères de Languedoc.
  • A Saint-Chinian, for a couscous with fish or 7 vegetables.
  • A light and flowery wine from Provence
  • In Red, a powerful Côte du Rhône

A wine for every couscous

It is difficult to remember only one version of couscous, we like them all! So royal couscous, chicken couscous, sweeter couscous with lots of raisins... as many possible combinations as there are recipes. A couscous royal traditionally goes with a rosé wine, more specifically, a couscous with vegetables or a couscous with fish will be better accompanied by a fruity wine, generous and quite supple, because it doesn't have to compete with very strong tastes in couscous. The couscous with lamb kebabs and its spicy side will be ideal with a light and flowery rosé wine, to soften the mouth.

The ideal appellations to accompany couscous

The rosé wines of Faugères in the Languedoc are to be preferred for a royal couscous, they will bring the essential sweetness to this spicy dish. The couscous of fish and the 7 vegetables will go perfectly with a Saint-Chinian wine, always in the Languedoc, while very spicy couscous such as couscous with lamb kebab will be better with a very fresh wine of Provence.

For red wine lovers, the powerful wines of the Côtes-du-Rhône, in the Rhone valley, will also be able to marry with the scents of couscous.
