What to drink with filet mignon?

If you are in a hurry

The pork tenderloin is rather neutral in taste, so it is with the sauce or the accompaniment that you will have to match the wine!

Different recipes for different wines

The plain pork tenderloin is tender and fine, its taste is light, so the wine that will accompany it will be as light and not too present in the mouth. That said, it needs enough fruitiness to accompany the meat with its aromas. Red wines such as Sancerre and Saumur for the Loire and Premières-Côtes de Bordeaux for the Bordeaux vineyard will be recommended.

With the traditional filet mignon with fruit, the acidity of the cooked fruit should be balanced by a powerful and generous wine. Those from the South of France, such as Madiran in the South-West, Pessac-Léognan in Bordeaux or Saint-Joseph in the Rhone Valley will bring welcome notes of red fruit.

If you have planned a pork filet mignon with mustard you will have to accompany the melting side of the sauce and the dish with aromatic but not too tannic wines, so as not to carry away the mouth! The appellation Cornas in the Rhone Valley corresponds, the wines of Morey-Saint-Denis in Burgundy or Sancerre in the Loire will be perfect too. The whites of the Côtes-de-Provence in Provence are also suitable.

Finally, if you eat filet mignon with mushrooms, white wine is the most recommended, in fact both dishes are delicate, white Burgundies like Rully and Meursault or the Condrieu in the Rhone Valley are fat, fruity wines that will go wonderfully with your pork tenderloin with mushrooms!
